Found January 09, 2013 on Double Coverage Football:
PLAYERS: Chip Kelly
TEAMS: Oregon Ducks
Proving once again that we at DC have absolutely no idea what we're talking about 99 percent of the time, Chip Kelly has reportedly shunned another round of NFL offers and will return to Eugene next season. We've got an entire offseason to write about Kelly and his impact at Oregon, but let's boil this story down to two facts that stand out above everything else. 1. The Oregon Ducks will be the odds on favorite to win the 2013-14 BCS title. 2. The NCAA sanctions coming to Oregon can't be that bad. We'll worry about what this means for the BCS, Pac12 and Nike's design shop later, but for now let's give credit to the one guy who's actually responsible for bringing Chip back to Autzen. Ladies and gentlemen...Mr. Matt Kearney:

The Oregon Ducks Should Be Honored To Still Call Chip Kelly Coach

It's almost as if Chip Kelly relishes in being the one recruited for a change. Kelly is so used to being the one who travels around the country trying to woo players and convince them to put their future in his hands; that being "recruited" by NFL execs must be a nice change. If he were a college recruit, Kelly would be a five-star athlete. Number one at his...

List of potential Browns coaches is lengthy

Chip Kelly and his built-for-speed, built-for-the-wide-open college game offense are staying in the college ranks.

Jimmy Haslam paid 1 billion...

Report: Chip Kelly waiting to Take Over as Patriots Head Coach?

Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly interviews for Philadelphia's head coaching vacancy.

Brian Kelly watching his perfect season go down in flames on Monday. Nobody involved with the Philadelphia Eagles organization watched Monday's BCS title game 42-14 tub-thumping of Notre Dame by Alabama. That may be the only explanation possible of why the Eagles went ahead and interviewed ND head football coach Brian Kelly on Tuesday for its vacant HC position. This according...

Chip Kelly Would Be Quality Fit as Patriots’ Head Coach If Bill Belichick Ever Decides to Move on

Editors note: The Oregonian mentioned that Chip Kelly may be holding out to move on to the NFL until he can have his dream job – that of head coach of the New England Patriots.

Chip Kelly the next Patriots head coach?

As unfathomable as it is to think of life without Bill Belichick, quarterback Tom Brady only has so many years left in him. One can only imagine that Bill will stick around for just a few years after the Brady Era, or maybe even split as soon as TB12 does. It's actually a scary thought; having arguably the greatest coach of all time on top of the greatest coach-QB tandem ever...
