The Philadelphia Eagles announced they have released coach Chip Kelly.

"We appreciate all the contributions that Chip Kelly made and wish him every success going forward," Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie said in a statement released by the team on Tuesday.

Kelly was 26-21 in two seasons with the Eagles after signing a five-year, $32.5 million contract to leave the University of Oregon. Philadelphia made the playoffs in Kelly's first season in 2014, but struggled to find consistency after a massive offseason overhaul and was eliminated from playoff contention with last Saturday's loss to the Washington Redskins.

Pat Shurmur will take over as interim head coach for the Eagles' regular-season finale against the New York Giants this Sunday.
