The Philadelphia Eagles’ coach-seeking caravan was on the move again over the weekend.

The quest to find Andy Reid’s successor resulted in owner Jeffrey Lurie, president Don Smolenski and general manager Howie Roseman meeting with University of Oregon coach Chip Kelly in Arizona on Saturday.

However, multiple media outlets reported Sunday night that Kelly had decided to stay with Oregon.

The Eagles on Sunday traveled to Denver to interview Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy.

They plan to meet with Indianapolis offensive coordinator Bruce Arians and Seattle defensive coordinator Gus Bradley this week and have asked for permission to talk to Cincinnati offensive coordinator Jay Gruden. Arians, 60, was hospitalized Sunday for an undisclosed illness, however, and did not coach in Indianapolis' 24-9 playoff loss at Baltimore.

The Eagles reportedly wanted to talk with Syracuse coach Doug Marrone, but multiple media outlets — including NFL.com, ESPN and The Associated Press — reported Sunday that the Buffalo Bills had hired him to replace Chan Gailey as their coach.

Since firing Reid last Monday, the Eagles have interviewed Atlanta special-teams coordinator Keith Armstrong and defensive coordinator Mike Nolan, as well as Kelly and McCoy.

The Kansas City Chiefs hired Reid on Friday and are scheduled to formally introduce him as their new coach today.
