Chip Kelly's ex-wife reveals intriguing details about a complicated and secretive man

Chip Kelly was named the third-most influential person in the NFL in 2015, yet very few people know much about the Philadelphia Eagles head coach outside of football.

A lengthy profile in Friday's Washington Post reveals much more about Kelly than most people know.

Through interviews with his former wife of seven years, Oregon Ducks coaches and players, the profile shows a man whose ex-wife, Jennifer Jenkins, is a big Philadelphia Eagles fan and stays in contact with the coach, even though few know Kelly had been married.

The article does provide some background on a few details fans may already have been aware of. For example, Kelly spent a summer running with the bulls in Pamplona, Spain and his home in Eugene may have contained little more than a big-screen TV. But some of the comments from Mike Bellotti were both funny and interesting.

Former Oregon defensive coordinator Nick Aliotti said he and Kelly never talked about families. Aliotti once confronted Kelly about running practices too fast, Kelly could've cared less. Kelly's revolutionary style forced defenses to adjust and help make Oregon a household name in college football.
