Chip Kelly considers offers from Florida, UCLA; turns down Tennessee


It's pretty safe to say Jon Gruden won't be the next coach of the Tennessee Volunteers.

Kelly's record also includes an 18-month show-cause penalty that he was issued in 2013 after OR was placed on probation for three years.

On a related note, 247Sports (paid) reports that they're confident Florida will hire Chip Kelly as their next head coach. Kelly, as you know, coached at OR, the alma mater of Nike founder Phil Knight.

In 2013, after he had joined the Eagles, the NCAA gave Kelly an 18-month show-cause penalty for "failure to monitor" in the Will Lyles case in which OR paid the 7-on-7 coach $25,000 to steer recruits to Oregon.

According to multiple reports, Florida met with Kelly on Sunday night, and after UCLA announced the firing of Jim Mora Jr., Kelly expressed interest in "weighing his options".


Does Kelly want to get in the rough-and-tumble SEC recruiting wars, despite publicly sayin in 2013 - when he was coach of the NFL's Philadelphia Eagles - that he doesn't miss recruiting at all?

As (g) rumors continue to swirl in Knoxville around which coach will replace ousted Tennessee head coach Butch Jones, it appears one name has been removed from the conversation.

- While Mike Riley doesn't seem long for Nebraska, there are indications that, despite his denial, Scott Frost could be the next man in charge of the Cornhuskers. Nebraska, at 4-7, will miss a bowl game no matter what happens against Iowa on Friday.

College football is better with Kelly's offensive mind and his against-the-grain approach to coaching.
