The Oregon Ducks are 9-0 this season, ranked No. 2, and looking for a second BCS title game berth in three years.  The man leading the team is head coach Chip Kelly, who maybe looking for a new challenge in the NFL. Former Oregon coach Mike Bellotti told CBSSports.com that he believes Kelly will soon be leaving for the NFL. “It's just inevitable that he will eventually be in the NFL,” Bellotti said. “Chip is one of the ultimate competitors and he sees that. It actually surprised me he changed his mind [with the Bucs] last year. “Whether they get to the national championship and whether they win the national championship, I don't know. To think he'll stay there when ultimately his idea of top jobs is to get to the Super Bowl, it won't happen, unfortunately, at the college level.” Bellotti coached Oregon for 14 seasons.  He hired Kelly in 2007 to be his offensive coordinator.  Once Bellotti stepped down as head coach to become Oregon's athletic director, Kelly took over as head coach.  Bellotti left in 2010 to become a game analyst for ESPN. Kelly responded to Bellotti's comments, saying: “I have no reaction. What we do here is all I'm focused on … We're not talking about where we're going. We have a one-week mission. Our mission this week is Cal. You need to narrow down your focus more nine games in.” Kelly turned down the Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coaching job last offseason.  He is 43-6 in three plus seasons as Oregon's head coach, and has won 2 Pac-10 Coach of the Year awards (2009-2010).
