I bring this up again because I just read that Kelly has apparently accepted the job as head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles (NFL). What a shocking turn of events, as I can honestly say I haven’t seen a move like this before. I have never seen a coach decline an NFL offer, stay at his current school, then take the very same offer a week and a half later.

According to several reports, Chip Kelly will turn down several NFL offers and remain the head coach at the University of Oregon.
While some will bash Kelly for flirting with the NFL two years in a row, I don’t really have a problem with it. After all, he appears to be one of the few coaches who is able to keep his team focused and unaffected by the numerous NFL rumors.
