    Rumor: Chip Kelly will be new HC at Florida

    Can't post anything directly yet as it would be a direct link to my guy, but I'm hearing that UF will announce Chip Kelly as new HC, possibly as early as this evening, and that the principle agreement has been signed. Supposedly rock solid on this.

    FWIW, for the new folks - we don't allow rumors regarding Alabama, but do allow rumors about other SEC programs, within reason. The guy I know from UF has been rock solid from day one - he's plugged in. IOW I'd bet my own money on this one if I were a betting man...

    Read this myself on a blog earlier this morning, so its out there. Definitely a home run hire if true.

    Eh.. I just hope Chip learned his lesson about recruiting specific type of players.... He left cupboard almost empty at Oregon, SF and Eagles.... I hope he does well.. but unlikely he will long term.
    We are champions. We can prove it! *counting 15 championships*

    I would say that pretty much means he is likely the next uf coach. I doubt the sec would clear him without Florida asking about him.

    Agreed - one of the few 'championship winning' coaches out there right now. Debatable as to whether he can be as successful in the SEC as he was in the PAC12 (I think he can be), but this is as close to a 'Saban' hire as anyone can hope for right now.

    When does Alabama play UF again in the regular season?

    I felt like he'd end up at UCLA and UF would end up with Frost. Interesting. Big hire.

    With the success Kirby is having at UGA pressure will REALLY be on UT to make a good hire.

    Unless he's lost his mojo or something, that's an absolute home run hire. Be interesting to see if he can slow the UGA hype train.
