Chip Kelly prefers Oregon over NFL
- Updated: January 7, 2013
University of Oregon head coach Chip Kelly has decided to return to the Oregon sidelines, reports ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Kelly has once again turned down the NFL and specifically, the Philadelphia Eagles and Cleveland Browns for a chance to coach one of the nation’s elite football programs.
The Eagles have turned their focus to offensive coordinator Mike McCoy of the Denver Broncos.
The offensive genius has lead Oregon to a 46-7 record during his tenure and in all four season’s has taken the Ducks to a BCS bowl game. The style of his offense has made its way into the NFL with teams like the Washington and New England using similar schemes.
Oregon’s Athletic Director Rob Mullens is very pleased with Kelly’s decision to return to Oregon. Mullens was asked by reporters whether Oregon booster and Nike boss Phil Knight played a role in Kelly returning, “I’ll say this,” he said, “There were numerous reports about a lot things, and as we sit here today a lot of them were inaccurate.”
