Chip Kelly Turns Down NFL, Returns to Oregon

With the direction that offenses are headed in the NFL, and the style of play that Chip Kelly runs at Oregon, he pretty much could’ve had any head coaching vacancy in the NFL that he wanted. He met with a number of teams, but he ultimately did what most college coached don’t: he returned to Oregon, according to NESN.

Despite all the interviews and interest from NFL teams, it appears that Chip Kelly couldn’t be swayed to leave his cushy gig at the University of Oregon. The Ducks’ head coach is sticking around, according to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports. Kelly interviewed with the Browns on Friday and spent nine hours with the Eagles on Saturday, according to multiple reports. Kelly has spent four years with Oregon and has mounted a 46-7 record. After leading the Ducks to a 35-17 victory over Kansas State in the Fiesta Bowl, he was expected to leave for the NFL.
