Chip Kelly Named UCLA Head Football Coach

A big question surrounds Kelly's hiring: Can he replicate his success from OR at UCLA? UCLA fired coach Jim Mora Jr. on November 19 after the Bruins lost to USC.

Chip Kelly is back in the Pac-12.

Kelly's success on the West Coast is well documented and it makes sense that he would be eyeing a return to that particular part of the country.

The decision by Kelly to move away from the Gators potentially clears him to focus attention on the opening at UCLA.


The jury remains out on whether Kelly can overtake USC and aid in UCLA becoming a top-tier program in Los Angeles but, if he can't do it, there is every reason to believe that most could not.

Kelly has been chased by Florida and UCLA, and Friday's report, if accurate, would appear to mean Kelly will most likely end up at UCLA and Florida likely is turning its attention to UCF coach Scott Frost. San Francisco fired Kelly following the 2016 season. During the 2010-11 campaign, the Ducks went 12-1 and made it all the way to the BCS National Championship Game where they ultimately fell to the Cam Newton-led Auburn Tigers.

Kelly last coached collegiately at OR, going 46-7 with the Ducks from 2009 to 2012.

Kelly has been a college football analyst for ESPN this season. Kelly failed to win a playoff game in Philadelphia, but the Eagles finished with a 10-6 record in both the 2013 and 2014 season. The former Oregon Ducks coach now is an analyst with ESPN.
