MOBILE, ALA. - New Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly's renowned creativity and boundary-pushing apparently knows no bounds.

He dreams up new words on the spot, and takes hypotheticals to their extreme.

At least he did after the North team's Senior Bowl practice Monday, in answering questions about what he's looking for in the offensive and defensive coordinators he has yet to hire.

"We're all in a society where you want one word to describe everything," said Kelly, whom the Eagles hired last week from the University of Oregon.

"I don't think I can describe a defensive co-ordinator with one word. There are so many different things you're looking at. How detail-oriented is he? What type of teacher is he? ..."

Then the light bulb went off.
