An inside scoop on college football and my birdie in the sky told me that Chip Kelly will be headed to Florida to possibly coach the Gators. While everybody’s eyes are glued to ESPN for the CFP Rankings and the Champions Classic, there people like me hammering away at keyboards to get you hot takes right away.

There were reports from that SEC Country reported on that would prevent the hire of Kelly. But apparently that is all out of the way and the only thing that wold stop this is if Kelly didn’t want to go back to college coaching.

Kelly’s resume clearly shows that he is ready to coach in the SEC, but is he really?

At Oregon he was the head coach from 2009 to 2012 going 46-7 in 4 years, with 3 PAC -12 Championships, 1 Rose Bowl win, 1 Fiesta Bowl win and 1 trip to the BCS national championship where he lost to Cam Newton and the Aburn Tigers 19-22. In those 4 years he also picked up multiple coach of the year awards. In all 4 years, Kelly coached the Ducks to a Top-11 final ranking. Kelly left the Ducks after a scouting violation, which kept him form coaching hte NCAA for 18 months.

Kelly them spend the next 3 years in Phiadelphia, taking them from 4-12 in 2012 to 10-6 in 2013 behind QB Nick Foles before losing in the first rond of the playoffs to the New Orleans Saints. Kelly also had powers of the GM and eventually head of football operations. His decisions werent received well by Eagle’s fans, trading away LeSean McCoy and Foles and after going 6-9 in the next season, he was fired. In 2016 he went to the San Francisco 49ers and was fired after a 2-14 season in a front office sweep.

So what does this mean for Florida?

You better be tracking flights from Connecticut to Gainsville because the hype is real.
