Chip Kelly To Decide Between Florida, UCLA

Sources: Florida preparing to widen its search beyond Chip Kelly

Chip Kelly is considering offers from Florida and UCLA to be their next head football coach, according to a report Wednesday by USA Today.

The Gators met with Kelly about the vacant job Sunday, according to a person familiar with the situation. Kelly's best success as a head coach came in the PAC 12 with OR, where he won three conference titles and went 46-7. He served as an ESPN college football analysts this fall.

The offers from Tennessee, UCLA and Florida are thought to be in the $6 million a year range.

When UCLA announced the firing of coach Jim Mora Sunday, athletic director Dan Guerrero said "We will not comment on the search or candidates until we announce a hire, and I would remind our passionate supporters that speculation, rumors and innuendo are just that".

The 53-year-old Kelly went 46-7 in four years (2009-12) at OR, which averaged 44.7 points a game during that span.

This update is meant to prevent the stolen coins from being a part of the system again by locking them into the hacker's wallet. Tether currencies are cryptocurrency assets which are issued on the blockchain via a system known as the Omni Layer Protocol.

Kelly was slapped with "failure to monitor" in the Will Lyles case. The Gators also have to (likely) compete with Nebraska for Frost's services, as the Huskers are likely to fire current head coach Mike Riley. But Kelly's accomplishments in the Pac-12 make him attractive for a school that last won a conference title in 1998.

But there is serious doubt about whether Gruden will be coaching anywhere next season.

During Kelly's tenure, the Ducks led the nation in 25-yard pass plays (220) and in 25-yard run plays (110). He led the team to two BCS Bowl wins and almost captured the BCS National Championship in 2010 when the Ducks were knocked off by the Auburn Tigers.

Suspensions and injuries are partly to blame. Throw in being surrounded by some of the top recruiting strongholds in the country, and Florida seems poised for a quick fix.
