PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Philadelphia Eagles coach Chip Kelly has been hit with a $99,000 tab in a lease dispute over an $11,000-a-month penthouse.

A city judge sided with landlord Tempa Berish and found that Kelly failed to give notice he was moving out after a year.

Kelly’s lawyer argued that the leasing agent knew Kelly hoped to buy a home and needed a flexible lease on the Old City apartment.

He says the 90-day notice required under the 2013 lease did not match the verbal promises made.

The Legal Intelligencer was first to report the lease dispute. It said Friday that Kelly is facing a $79,000 judgment.

Court documents show Kelly will also lose his $20,000 security deposit after his lawyer failed to show for a one-day trial.

Kelly’s lawyer didn’t immediately return a call seeking comment.
