The Philadelphia football organization has grown an interest in Alabama’s defensive coordinator Kirby Smart. His wrap sheet is very appealing as he recently won a National Championship with Alabama back in 2012. Although Kelly is not the only contender for that position he seem to be the most appealing.

Kirby Smart never got a chance to put his Alabama defense up againstChip Kelly's offense at Oregon.

According to one report Thursday, the Philadelphia Eagles are hoping the two can come together for the 2013 season.

Howard Eskin, a longtime TV/radio reporter in Philadelphia, wrote on his Twitter account that the Eagles were interested in Smart and Georgia'sTodd Grantham as candidates to be Kelly's defensive coordinator.

Kelly, Oregon's coach for the past four years, was hired Wednesday as the Eagles' new head coach. He held his first press conference today.
