NFL.com - [Full Article]

Chip Kelly might be close to adding another key piece to his coaching staff.

Cleveland Browns linebackers coach Billy Davis will be hired as the new defensive coordinator of the Eagles, a source informed of the move told NFL.com's Ian Rapoport on Thursday.

Davis spent the past two seasons with the Browns after serving as defensive coordinator for the Arizona Cardinals from 2009 to 2010 and the San Francisco 49ers from 2005 to 2006. Cleveland operated out of a 4-3 scheme under Dick Jauron last season, but Davis has experience in the 3-4 alignment the Eagles will run in 2013.
