Ever wonder what it would be like if all the coaching candidates for NFL head coaching jobs were all friends on Facebook? Well it could look something like this.

Fan-Demonium: Who Is Chip Kelly?
I was ecstatic when I learned on Wednesday that Chip Kelly will be the Eagles' new head coach. Kelly was my No. 1 target when this process began and I didn't think the Eagles had a shot after he initially decided to stay at Oregon. Getting him was a great move. I can't promise it will deliver great results since all hires are risky. After all, Bill Belichick failed at his first stop and Jimmy Johnson at his second. The point is that I think the Eagles got the best available coach.

"He was the defensive coordinator at the University of Michigan for a lot of years and did an outstanding job," Coughlin said of Herrmann.

I have always been a great admirer of Bo Schembechler."

The Eagles reached out to Florida defensive coordinator Dan Quinn and former Cardinals defensive coordinator Ray Horton, according to sources, but Quinn signed with the Seahawks and Horton inked a four-year deal with the Browns on Friday.
