We continue to add and subtract names to and from the list of potential Philadelphia Eagles head coaches on a daily basis. This time, it appears we can put a "Kelly" back on the list, as CSN Philly's Reuben Frank reports that Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly has interviewed for Andy Reid's old job.

From Frank: 

Kelly becomes the 13th known candidate to replace Andy Reid, fired last week after 14 seasons as head coach of the Eagles.

Of those 13, Kelly is the third college coach the Eagles have interviewed. They also interviewed Chip Kelly, who returned to Oregon, and Bill O'Brien, who returned to Penn State with a pay raise.

Kelly, of course, had a great season with Notre Dame, losing in the BCS title game to Alabama Monday night. Frank notes that in 22 years as a head coach, he's had just one losing season.
