UCLA Hires Chip Kelly As Head Football Coach

Report: Chip Kelly Finalizing Deal With UCLA To Be Next Head Coach

The University of Florida had been pursuing Kelly, but the Gators made a decision to move in another direction this week. He previously had been named AP Coach of the Year at OR in 2010-11, when they lost the BCS Championship game to Auburn, compiling a 46-7 record with the Ducks from 2009-12 before jumping to the NFL. His high-powered and high-paced offense helped lead the Ducks to a 46-7 record and multiple bowls in 4 years.

In the end, Kelly chose to join the UCLA football program to replace Jim Mora, leaving interest from Florida on the table in the process.

He won 12 games in each of his last three years with OR and went 10-3 in his first season with the school in 2009.

Chip Kelly has reached an agreement with UCLA to be the Bruins new football coach, according to Ben Bolch of the Los Angeles Times. The Ducks fell 22-19 to Auburn in the 2011 National Championship Game.




Kelly also won 10 games with Philadelphia in his second season, but the team missed out on the playoffs.

The San Francisco 49ers then chose to try Kelly as their head coach, but he was canned after just one season thanks to a 2-14 record in 2016.

UCLA fired Jim Mora last Sunday following a loss to rival USC in a battle of top quarterback prospects, the Bruins' Josh Rosen and the Trojans' Sam Darnold. San Francisco fired Kelly following the 2016 season.
