The Philadelphia Eagles may be looking to replace former head coach Chip Kelly internally rather than with candidates out side the organization.

The Eagles interviewed running backs coach Duce Staley for their head-coaching vacancy on Friday, the team confirmed.

Staley has served as the Eagles' running backs coach since 2013, working previously as a special teams quality control coach.

The 40-year-old spent the first seven years of his playing career as a running back for the Eagles, ending it with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Philadelphia fired Chip Kelly on Dec. 29 after he spent three seasons with the organization, posting a 26-21 cumulative record.

Staley's interview is likely the first of many for the Eagles in their attempt to stabilize the franchise. If he is offered the head-coaching position, he'll need to rebuild the rushing attack that unexpectedly faltered with DeMarco Murray as the lead back.
