    I know. I wonder if the sports media is going to skewer him for leaving after he said he was going to be staying. Probably not.

    The Oregon fans are saying "kelly never said anything officially, everything was 'A source claims Kelly said no to the NFL'" so I think he will be left alone. I do think, if the NCAA comes, that Kelly will get some grief for pulling a Pete Carrol

    Re: Oregon HC Chip Kelly hired as Philadelphia Eagles HC

    By the way, this article was posted a few days back...we'll see if it holds true.

    It makes sense to give him a shot...they probably wouldn't be able get a superstar coach at this late date.

    http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports...frich/1807463/

    If Chip Kelly's last game at Oregon is the Fiesta Bowl, the Ducks have their next coach.

    Offensive coordinator Mark Helfrich will be promoted to head coach if Kelly jumps to the NFL, according to a person with direct knowledge of the school's plans. This person spoke to USA TODAY Sports on condition of anonymity because Kelly is still the Ducks' coach.

    I wonder if the talking heads like ESPN will make a big deal about him saying he was staying and then leaving...

    Chip had it made at Oregon. He pretty much owned the Pac-12. What the heck?

    Re: Oregon HC Chip Kelly hired as Philadelphia Eagles HC

    Listening to ESPN Radio today apparently he did some soul-searching...re-thought the decision....and with the "backdoor" left open for the position - he went for it.

    I've been there on decisions. I think we all have. That's a pretty big decision - especially given we're talkin' about the Ducks!

    I can't see a big stink being made about this unless it's from the Duck fanbase but from what has been posted in this thread I guess they support him.

    If that's true - good for them!

    Re: Oregon HC Chip Kelly hired as Philadelphia Eagles HC

    I'm glad he's gone from the college ranks. Oregon's high-octane offense and Chip Kelly's coaching could pull off an upset win and it could be in the NC game. Now that's off the table.

    Roughly three weeks until signing day. Kelly didn't do the Ducks any favors by waiting so long to pull the trigger. Now Oregon has to scramble to fill the coaching vacancy and also must hold together their recruiting class.

    Stanford is probably the biggest beneficiary. Helps clear the path for another run at the PAC title.
