TUSCALOOSA, Alabama -- Kirby Smart never got a chance to put his Alabama defense up against Chip Kelly's offense at Oregon.

According to one report Thursday, the Philadelphia Eagles are hoping the two can come together for the 2013 season.

Howard Eskin, a longtime TV/radio reporter in Philadelphia, wrote on his Twitter account that the Eagles were interested in Smart and Georgia's Todd Grantham as candidates to be Kelly's defensive coordinator.

Kelly, Oregon's coach for the past four years, was hired Wednesday as the Eagles' new head coach. He held his first press conference today.
