In a shocking turn of events, the Florida Gators are no longer considering Chip Kelly for its head coaching position. Kelly will now become the UCLA Bruins Head Coach.
Kelly was only considering the Bruins and the Gators as he considers a return to college football. He spent this past season as a college football and NFL analyst for ESPN.
He could not accept a coaching job until the end of the season. The Bruins and Gators both ends their regular season on Saturday.
Kelly is reportedly being paid $5 million by the San Francisco 49ers this season. He reportedly is owed $60 million by the team, but that may change once Kelly accepts a new job.
With Florida moving on, they now have turned their attention to Central Florida Head Coach Scott Frost. His team is undefeated this season after having just a 6-7 record last season in his first-year as the Knights Head Coach.
Frost would not be able to accept the Gators job, if the sides could come to an agreement, until the American Athletic Conference Championship game next week.
Kelly would return to the Pac-12 Conference, which he’s already familiar with. He was previously the Oregon Ducks Head Coach.
Prior to becoming the Knights Head Coach, Frost was the Ducks offensive coordinator. He was the Ducks wide receiver under Kelly.
Frost is 16-7 as the Knights Head Coach. Kelly was 46-7 as the Ducks Head Coach.
