PHILADELPHIA (USA Today)—There is no doubt that head coach Chip Kelly is running the Eagles now after he was given control over all football-related decisions in a dramatic shakeup of the team’s hierarchy.
The moves, announced Friday night, make Kelly in essence the coach and general manager. It comes at the expense of Howie Roseman, who was stripped of the general manager title, which included the authority over the draft.
Roseman, who had served as GM since 2010, received a new title of executive vice president of football operations. He will oversee contract negotiations, salary cap management and NFL strategic matters, while overseeing the team’s medical staff, equipment staff and more.
