Add a fourth (actually fifth) name to the Eagles jam-packed Western tour.

They’re meeting with Chip Kelly today, then announced upcoming meetings with Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy, Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians and Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley.

According to Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News, they’re also going to interview Syracuse coach Doug Marrone while they’re in Arizona, before heading to Denver Sunday to talk to McCoy.

Marrone was previously scheduled to talk to the Browns and Bills.

And in a how-your-journalism sausage-gets-made aside, Bowen’s note also includes a really nice story about Kelly written from a Philadelphia perspective. It was going to run in this morning’s Daily News, before last night’s report that Kelly was close to a deal with the Browns. It’s a good story. You should read it, if only so Bowen gets something out of his trip to Phoenix besides Marriott points.
