Chip Kelly
Head Coach

Chip Kelly was named head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles on
January 16, 2013 after a successful four-year reign manning the
sidelines at the University of Oregon.
In his first season in professional football, Kelly produced a 10-6
record and an NFC East championship, becoming just the second
head coach in league history to win a division title in his first season in the NFL. Along the way, the Eagles set a plethora of team
records, including points (442), total net yards (6,676), touchdowns
(53), passing yards (4,406) and fewest turnovers (19). The Eagles
also set an NFL record with 99 plays of 20+ yards and became the
first team since the 1991 Buffalo Bills to lead the league in rushing
while ranking last in time of possession.
Prior to joining the Eagles, Kelly’s four-year tenure at Oregon
produced a 46-7 (.868) overall record and transformed that university into one of the nation’s premiere football destinations.
Amidst Kelly’s meteoric rise, he became the first coach in Oregon’s history to guide the program to three undisputed conference
championships from 2009-12. Additionally, the Ducks made an appearance in a BCS Bowl game in each of Kelly’s four seasons as
head coach. In just Kelly’s second season, Oregon earned a trip to
the BCS National Championship game in 2010.
In his four seasons at Oregon, the Ducks scored a whopping 44.7
points per game. They also led the FBS in big plays, including 25yard passing plays (220) and 25-yard rushes (110).
His 2012 Ducks squad finished 12-1 and ranked fourth in total
offense accumulating nearly 7,000 yards while scoring an average
of 49.6 points per game. They rushed for 315.2 yards per game while
ranking fifth, averaging 537.4 total yards.
Known as a football junkie, Kelly has a matter-of-fact leadership
style in addition to his mastery of the spread offense. Following Oregon’s run at a potential national title in 2010, Kelly’s leadership
was recognized with a multitude of Coach of the Year awards from
outlets such as Associated Press, Sporting News, The Walter Camp
Football Foundation, and other postseason titles including the Eddie
Robinson Coach of the Year, AFCA Coach of the Year, and Pac-10
Coach of the Year.
Prior to taking over as Oregon’s head coach, Kelly spent two seasons as the team’s offensive coordinator. In his first season leading
the team’s offense, the Ducks were forced into playing four different
starting quarterbacks during the final four games of 2007. Kelly’s
plug-and-play style was cemented when the team had an impressive 56-21 Sun Bowl victory over South Florida.

Before joining Oregon’s program, Kelly served as New Hampshire’s offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach from 19992006. His offenses at his alma mater averaged better than 400
yards of total offense in seven of his eight seasons and more than
30 points per game in his final four years. As a result, three Wildcat
players received first-team All-America acclaim each of his last two
seasons in the Granite State. In 2006, junior QB Ricky Santos earned
the Walter Payton Award as the most outstanding players in FCS.
Ironically, Kelly got his first taste of coaching in the college ranks
on the defensive side of the ball with Columbia in 1990. And in 1993,
he was named the defensive coordinator at Johns Hopkins.
A product of the University of New Hampshire, Kelly earned a
bachelor’s degree in physical education. He played quarterback and
defensive back for legendary coach Bill Bowes at UNH from 198184.
The third of four boys, Kelly attended Manchester (NH) Central
High School and starred in football and track. Kelly, whose first love
was hockey, played in the Manchester Regional Youth Hockey Association, and also made time for the local CYO basketball team.
Charles Kelly was born in Dover, NH, on November 25, 1963 and
is the son of Paul and Jean Kelly. Paul is a retired trial lawyer.

Chairman/Chief Executive Officer
20th year in Philadelphia
Overall Record: 192-156-2 (.551)
Taking over a football franchise in 1994 that made the playoffs just
14 times in a 62-year span (23 percent), the Eagles have been a
perennial contender under Lurie, earning playoff berths in 12 of his
19 years as owner (63 percent). The Eagles have a greater overall
winning percentage and appeared in more playoff games (23) and
won more (11) than all of the other ownership groups combined.
Off the field, his stewardship of Screen Pass Pictures has garnered two Academy Awards since 2010. And, under his guidance,
the Eagles have become leaders with their charitable and environmental efforts.
Along the way, Lurie has earned the respect of NFL’s top hierarchy as he serves on the NFL’s Finance Committee, Broadcast
Committee, Stadium Committee, International Committee and the
Super Bowl Advisory Committee.
In 2013, Lurie hired renowned University of Oregon Head Coach
Chip Kelly to be the 21st head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles.
Coach Kelly replaced Andy Reid, the all-time winningest coach in
franchise history, whom Lurie hired in 1999.
In his first season, Kelly led the Eagles to the NFC East division title, setting franchise records in points (442), total net yards
(6,676), touchdowns (53) and passing yards (4,406), while also turning the ball over fewer times (19) than any other squad in team
history.
Also in 2013, Screen Pass Pictures earned its second Academy
Award for “Inocente,” in the category of Best Documentary Short.
The first Oscar came in 2010 for “Inside Job” which earned the
Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature.
One of Lurie’s charitable endeavors resulted in the creation
of Eagles Youth Partnership (EYP), the team’s nonprofit, 501(c)(3)
charitable wing. Since its inception in 1995, EYP has developed into
one of the most innovative nonprofit organizations in Philadelphia,
winning awards internationally for its philanthropy.
The Eagles, based on the work of EYP, the Tackling Breast Cancer and Go Green campaigns, earned the coveted 2011 Sport Team
of the Year Award by Beyond Sport, a global organization that promotes, develops and funds the use of sport to create positive social
change across the world.
The Philadelphia Business Journal honored the Eagles as one
of Philadelphia’s top charitable corporations in 2010. “That giving
attitude made them a winner in every category of the Corporate
Philanthropy Awards,” cited the publication in its announcement.
The Go Green program serves to better the environment by creating and sustaining programs that improve the quality of life in the
Philadelphia region, green the environment and reduce the team’s
impact on the planet. The Eagles received the 2008 Ongoing Commitment Award from the Environmental Media Association for their
efforts.
Lurie is a director of the NLM Family Foundation, that devotes
much of its resources to autism research and education. NLM cofunded a short documentary film entitled “Autism is a World” that
received a nomination for a 2005 Academy Award.

HOWIE ROSEMAN

17th year in Philadelphia

15th year in Philadelphia

President

Don Smolenski, a longtime leader in the Eagles front office and a
veteran sports executive, was named the club’s president in June,
2012. His promotion capped a steady rise through the executive
ranks of the Eagles organization.
As president, Smolenski directs the club’s business and strategic efforts, including sales, marketing, communications and
operations. He is known for his collaborative, easygoing style,
financial acumen and long-term view and for playing a key role
in significant projects from the construction of Lincoln Financial
Field to the club’s internationally recognized environmental and
philanthropic programs.
During his first year as president, Smolenski infused energy
throughout the organization with his engaging leadership style.
He embarked on a two-year, $125 million revitalization plan to
Lincoln Financial Field and aided Eagles chairman Jeffrey Lurie
and general manager Howie Roseman on the team’s search for a
new head coach - a process that landed Oregon head coach Chip
Kelly. He also spearheaded a plan that relocated the team’s training camp to Philadelphia for the first time since 1943.
The stadium revitalization plan, like others, was a direct result
of his numerous conversations with Eagles fans, an initiative that
fuels Smolenski’s drive as one of the key stewards of the franchise.
Smolenski is also a driving force in the team’s environmental initiatives. Through its Go Green! program, the Eagles have
emerged as a leader in environmental stewardship. The team has
become a green leader in the sports industry through its conservation efforts, recycling programs, and use of renewable energy.
In fact, his efforts have made Lincoln Financial Field one of the
greenest sports stadium in the world with the installation of solar
panels and wind turbines in 2012.

STADIUM REVITALIZATION ON TAP
In February of 2012, the Philadelphia Eagles kicked
off a two-year, $125 million project to revitalize Lincoln Financial Field and provide season ticket members and
fans with an enhanced gameday experience. Over the past two
seasons, LFF has seen several changes and additions made
that were direct results of feedback that the team received
from its fans. The Eagles teamed up with both Gensler Architecture and Turner Construction to develop and execute a plan
for the project that will be completed prior to the start of the
2014 season.
“We have had discussions with season ticket holders over the
past couple of seasons to find out what was important to them.
We listened and developed a plan of action. The revitalization
is a direct result of those conversations,” said Smolenski. “Our
main goal when we began this project was to dramatically enhance the gameday experience for our fans. They deserve an
exciting and fun experience and we are committed to that.”

General Manager

Howie Roseman is in his 15th season in Philadelphia and his fifth
as the Eagles general manager after being promoted to his current post on January 29, 2010. Roseman spent the previous two
seasons as the team’s vice president of player personnel.
Known as one of the most aggressive general managers in the
league, Roseman has earned a reputation for seeking any edge he
can find to field the best team.
Roseman oversees the college and pro scouting departments,
the team’s medical, equipment, video and player development
staffs, while serving as the steward of the salary cap.
He played a vital role assisting Eagles chairman Jeffrey Lurie
in the team’s search for a new head in 2013, which ultimately
brought renowned Oregon coach Chip Kelly east to Philadelphia.
“He’s one of the brightest young guys in the league,” said
Eagles chairman Jeffrey Lurie. “I’m very excited about what he
brings to the table. He has assembled an excellent team around
him. He’s meticulous in his evaluations. He has great relationships
with players, coaches and agents around the league.”
Over the last couple of years, Roseman has configured what
many observers have coined a strong scouting staff with a blend
of experienced scouts and a young core of talent.
“You have to give him a lot of credit for that, because there are
a lot of young guys who wouldn’t do that,” former NFL GM and
current Eagles senior football advisor Tom Donahoe said. “They’d
feel threatened by it. They would feel a little bit intimidated by it.
But Howie’s only interested in getting the best group of scouts that
he can. He values our opinion. We don’t always agree, but that’s
part of scouting.”

ROSEMAN’S SCOUTING TEAM
Over the last two years, Roseman has revamped the
Eagles scouting staff. Here’s a breakdown:
Tom Gamble ... Vice President of Player Personnel
Anthony Patch ... Director of College Scouting
Rick Mueller ... Director of Player Personnel
Tom Donahoe ... Senior Football Advisor
Ed Marynowitz ... Assistant Director of Player Personnel
Mike Bradway ... Assistant Director of College Scouting
