Oregon head coach Chip Kelly could have his eyes set for the NFL next season. Kelly showed his hand past offseason when he nearly took the job with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He would be another hot name for teams like the Eagles, Panthers, Chargers, Jets and Cowboys to look at.
It appears, according to those close to Kelly and the University of Oregon, if the Ducks win the National Championship this year, it will be followed by Kelly’s inevitable move to the pros.
A source close to Kelly who didn’t want to be identified told Dodd that if the Ducks win the national championship, Kelly will have accomplished everything he wants to accomplish in college football, and will turn his attention to the NFL.
San Diego fans would almost be happy with any name other than Norv Turner. Could the Chargers bring another offensive mind to town? The offensive style would be very different, but it could be explosive.
So, Chip Kelly and Jon Gruden on the potential list. Who else is going to be available at the end of the season?
