PLAYERS: Chip KellyCam Newton
TEAMS: Oregon Ducks
According to Don Banks of SI.com, in order for Oregon head coach Chip Kelly  to make the jump to the NFL he wants “near complete control” of an NFL team. If there’s a big-name coaching candidate to keep in mind in Carolina, Oregon’s Chip Kelly is a possibility. The thought of Kelly matching his up-tempo offense to franchise quarterback Cam Newton’s game is an intriguing notion. But Kelly is said to be only interested in an NFL job that comes with near-total personnel control, so he would seem a possibility only if the Panthers stay in-house with their GM opening and elevate Beane. I’m not sure an NFL team is going to be willing to give a college football coach that much control over an NFL team.   Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; s...
