Every team in the NFC East tried ot hire former Oregon defensive coordinator Nick Aliotti after the Philadelphia Eagles hired Chip Kelly in 2013

"I have been asked by everybody in the NFC East," Aliotti, now retired, told The Oregonian on Monday. "The Giants asked me to come back when Chip got the first job. I didn't feel right doing that. Some teams have called when they're getting ready to play the Eagles and they call and have certain questions on the thing. Unless I know the guy and he's a good friend, I don't get involved with that."

Aliotti was coordinator at Oregon from 1999 until 2013 when he retired.
