In four years at Oregon, Kelly has a 45-7 record, and is known for his up-tempo offense that has transformed the Ducks into a national power. He is regarded as one of college football’s prime candidates for an NFL coaching job this offseason.
Tonight Kelly will face Kansas State the 5th best team in the nation, going up against Collin Klein. This game is going to be a very high scoring game, but let’s see what type of performance Chip Kelly can put together to impress the three NFL teams that are showing interest.
The Buffalo Bills, Philadelphia Eagles and Cleveland Browns will all be on hand to watch the game. If Chip Kelly can get those players to put on a game, and show his defense can stop the K-State offense, expect his stock to sky rocket.
