    Why would Chip Kelly be talking to ND about a raise? He works or worked for Oregon. He would be talking to Nike about a raise if anyone.

    you're thinking of Brian Kelley, the ND Coach.

    It makes me wonder how big an impact San Diego hiring Denver's O.C. and Chicago hiring a coach from the CFL had on Philadelphia in closing the deal.

    The pickings were slim in the NFL this off-season...guess the Eagles gave him an offer he couldn't refuse.

    Yep; saw it after I posted. I didn't remember Chip Kelly saying he was staying at Oregon. I only remembered Brian Kelly's announcements.

    Yeah... I don't think Chip Kelly ever publicly said he was staying.

    Probably significant roster control.

    Yeah, there was never an announcement. ESPN would just say that Team X wasn't considering him (I think he was first linked to Cleveland; then when that job was filled; no one mentioned him again until now).

    Could this be the same senario that let Pete Carroll to the Seahawks? Could the NCAA be near?

    As far as him being blasted like Saban was, I don't think he ever actually turned down the job and said he was staying. I think it was just "sources" who said he was staying at Oregon.

    There was speculation that was the case when he first was getting mentioned with NFL jobs this year. Time will tell; but it was more obvious at the time PC left USC that penalties were coming down than at Oregon.
