Eagles interview Staley for head coaching job

PHILADELPHIA (AP) The Eagles have interviewed running backs coach Duce Staley for their vacant coaching position created when Chip Kelly was fired on Tuesday.

Staley interviewed for the job on Friday. He played seven seasons for the Eagles from 1997-2003 and ran for 1,000 yards three times.

The 40-year-old Staley was an assistant on Andy Reid's staff for two seasons and served under Kelly the past three.

He was a fan favorite in Philadelphia and finished his career playing parts of three seasons with the Steelers.

Kelly was let go with one game left after going 6-9 after two 10-6 seasons and one division title.
