PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – In case you haven’t heard, Chip Kelly, John Hackworth is the longest tenured professional head coach in Philadelphia. This happened when Peter Laviolette got fired as head coach of the Philadelphia Flyers.

Doug Collins, Andy Reid, Peter Laviolette, and Charlie Manuel were all relieved of their coaching duties in the last year.

To commemorate the occasion, a Twitter follower of mine decided to dedicate her Halloween decorations to the coaches who are no longer with us in Philadelphia.

I’m not sure how kids will react when approaching the house, but I imagine the words “Doug Collins” may frighten anyone.

When pressed, Carly (@nuclearuterus on Twitter), said she thinks Brett Brown will last the longest of the current coaches. “I’m gonna say Brown since he came from such a winning organization,” she said.
