The Chip Kelly sweepstakes are down to two

Share

Footballscoop.com, a coach-centric website, reported Tuesday night that a contingent from UCLA has met with Kelly and that another program has contacted Kelly's representatives to discuss possibilities should an opening occur at their school.

Florida's vacated position comes after Jim McElwain was sacked for cause in late October during Year 3 of his stint in Gainesville.

There's reportedly just one issue. He's immediately been on the list for any prominent job opening at the college level, but Florida and UCLA have emerged as Kelly's top two options.

Florida is apparently not Chip Kelly's only potential destination. Kelly is debating between UCLA and Florida, according to ESPN, and is expected to choose between the two in the next few days.

Despite the unceremonious end to his National Football League tenure, Kelly is an experienced coach with a system that unquestionably works at the college level.

That seems a bit unusual, but it would help explain why a bunch of Florida players tweeted the exact same reaction on Sunday amid rumors that Kelly had agreed to become the next coach of the Gators. He went 46-7 during four years at OR and though the Ducks lost in Kelly's lone national championship game appearance, he steered the team to five consecutive finishes in the top five of the AP poll. He has deep knowledge of the Pac-12 and likely would thrive in the wide-open Pac-12 South Division.

Kelly, who now works for ESPN as an analyst, also could choose to sit out another season and wait for a more desirable job to open up, perhaps one in Eugene, Or.
