UCLA Athletics announced Saturday morning that Chip Kelly will be the Bruins' new head coach, less than a week after UCLA fired former head coach Jim Mora. The deal comes with a $9 million reciprocal buyout. After all, few have done a more impressive job in turning a program into a national power than Kelly executed at OR and, even with two relatively unsuccessful NFL stints, there is every reason to believe that he will be a quality option at the college level again.
That came as a devastating blow for many Florida fans who were certain the Gators were going to land Kelly to come coach in Gainesville.
With the Ducks, Kelly established himself as one of college football's most innovative coaches, particularly on the offensive side of the ball. At the college level, Kelly went 46-7 during four years at OR that included a trip to the BCS National Championship game after going 12-0 in 2010.Читайте также: Pacquiao teases McGregor fight by using real boxing match bait
After his successful run on the NCAA level, Kelly got a shot in the National Football League, first landing a job with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2013.
Kelly also won 10 games with Philadelphia in his second season, but the team missed out on the playoffs.
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.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
