    Kelly to Stay at Oregon

    Clicky

    I guess he had his, uh, ego stroked enough for the time being.
    I may disagree with you, but I'm pretty sure you're not Hitler.

    I'm little surprised, because with NCAA coming sniffing, you would think he would bolt just in time. The opportunity to interview with several teams, he should've taken it. My feeling is that He used NFL to see what's he's worth out there.

    That says they probably skate by with the nzaa near term. Or he goes down with the ship

    Kelly to Stay at Oregon

    Very surprised...I figured he was gone.

    There is a fine line between being a "die-hard" fan and just another critic!

    Re: Kelly to Stay at Oregon

    I'm actually glad he's staying at Oregon..A strong Oregon team will keep USC in check & make Lane's life as USC's HC much much tougher..It's obvious UCLA won't compete at the level of USC on a consistent basis..JMO

    So 3 weeks ago when Adam Scheffter said there was a 100% chance of Kelly to the NFL - he was wrong?

    Personally, I dont think his philosophy would work in the NFL. His defenses would get killed.

    Re: Kelly to Stay at Oregon

    Wise move!

    Now he needs to put more emphasis on size inside on DL and a bit in the LB corp along with adding some power to their rushing attack to counteract the Stanfords etc. whom match up well because of just such leanings.

    Re: Kelly to Stay at Oregon

    I won't believe he's staying until every NFL vacancy is filled. This report could very likely be a negotiating tactic. He wouldn't be the first for sure.

    Besides, I can't imagine recruits signing on to play for a guy for one year. I hope he stays and I like him, but I just can't see him staying for U of O.
    Pronounced as or-e-bama not Obama.

    Or Chris, if you prefer.

    Re: Kelly to Stay at Oregon

    The captain goes down with the ship, I suppose?

    The truth is probably less honorable and rather pragmatic. He probably expects the NCAA to still be a year off from laying down any punishment and he hopes for a better position to open in the NFL. Like Saban said to suitors from the NFL recently: NFL really means "Not For Long." None of the jobs available are particularly ideal for his scheme. The Eagles are the most ideal by personnel but it requires staking your job on an aging Michael Vick. I think Kelly could win in the NFL but he wouldn't have long to get it right. The NFL has ruined many good coaches because they simply couldn't get the pieces together before the season ticket holders demanded their head. Most of the Super Bowl winning coaches over the last decade have been retreads. Pete Carroll was a failed NFL coach who took the USC job only the resurrect his career (and he wasn't even a top 5 choice for USC either). He's two wins from a Super Bowl and his team looks the part. Good coaches fail in the NFL and a lot of time it's more the management issue he inherits than inability to coach.

    Kelly has even a shorter leash because every talking head will question whether his system can work if it doesn't immediately.

    Good thoughts! Anything to keep Lane and USC in check and keep ESPN from gushing over him as they did preseason.
