Chip Kelly was named professional coach of the year by the Maxwell Football Club on Thursday, the one-year anniversary of his hiring as Eagles coach.
The Philadelphia club's award is named after former Eagles coach Greasy Neale.
Kelly led the Eagles to a 10-6 finish and the NFC East title, including a 7-1 mark in the final eight games of the regular season. It was a six-win improvement from 2012. The Eagles lost to the New Orleans Saints in the opening round of the playoffs.
Kelly oversaw the NFL's No. 2 offense this season. He also groomed Nick Foles into a Pro Bowl quarterback.
