CSN’s Derrick Gunn tweeted yesterday that “league sources report that the New York Giants are interested in talking with fired Eagles coach Chip Kelly.”

Tom Coughlin stepped down as Giants head coach Monday afternoon and now there already rumors about who might replace him. And it’s not surprising to see the Giants interested in their NFC East rival’s former coach.

Kelly had a lot of success against New York during his tenure in Philadelphia. The Eagles went 4-1 in five games versus Coughlin, outscoring the G-Men by a total of 131 to 69 in that span.

This wouldn’t be the first time the Giants have showed interest in Kelly. Coughlin tried to hire Kelly as a quality control coach in 2006 but Kelly opted to stay as the offensive coordinator at the University of New Hampshire.
