UCLA To Appoint Chip Kelly As Head Coach

26 November, 2017, 00:56 | Author: Laura Christensen
  • Chip Kelly UCLA reportedly finalizing deal

Although people will knock Kelly's lack of success with the Eagles and 49ers in the NFL, he was a tremendous college football coach first.

His contract is for five years and $23.3 million, with a $9 million reciprocal buyout, according to school officials.

With Florida and Kelly no longer a possibility, UCLA is the increasingly likely new destination for the former coach of the Oregon Ducks - if Kelly returns to coaching. After all, few have done a more impressive job in turning a program into a national power than Kelly executed at OR and, even with two relatively unsuccessful NFL stints, there is every reason to believe that he will be a quality option at the college level again.


Football Scoop and Yahoo reported the news on Friday that Kelly was no longer considering Florida and he was expected to pick UCLA and replace Jim Mora who was sacked last Sunday, one day after losing again to rival USC. Once that news broke, Kelly landing at UCLA appeared a near certainty. The University of Florida had been pursuing Kelly, but the Gators chose to move in another direction this week. It reportedly came down to the Bruins and Florida for Kelly's services, but ultimately, he chose to stay on the west coast.

Nebraska fired coach Mike Riley on Saturday, a day after he finished a 4-8 season.

He went 46-7 in four seasons at OR from 2009-2012 before leaving for the National Football League with the Philadelphia Eagles. Mora was 46-30 in six seasons with the Bruins. Since then Kelly has been working as an analyst for ESPN.
