Chip Kelly decided against moving over the NFL this weekend, instead choosing to stick it out in Eugene, Ore., as the Ducks’ head coach. The Oregonian implied that Kelly may be waiting for his dream job to come along before moving to the pros. As a New Hampshire native, Kelly’s dream job may be that of New England Patriots head coach. There’s no telling when Bill Belichick may be ready to retire, but would you like to see Kelly replace the five-time Super Bowl champ one day? Kelly visited the Patriots over the summer, and New England added some elements of the Oregon offense to theirs. Kelly would bring a spread offense that relies heavily on the no huddle. Belichick obviously would approve of Kelly if he had the confidence to use parts of his scheme, but is he a perfect fit for the Patriots? One part of Kelly’s game that doesn’t fit New England is that he needs a mobile quarterback to make his read option work. Tom Brady certainly doesn’t have the legs to do it, and neither does his successor in Ryan Mallett. We’ve seen elements of the option work in Washington, Seattle and San Francisco this season, but finding the right player man the read option in the NFL may not be so easy. So what do you think, is Kelly a good fit in New England once Belichick retires?
