Florida Looking Into Chip Kelly As Potential New Coach

Florida Looking Into Chip Kelly As Potential New Coach”

According to a report from Florida-based lawyer and Gators alum Darren Heitner, Florida could make the decision to hire Chip Kelly and possibly do it this week.

Kelly previously coached OR to the national title game before spending time as the head coach with the NFL's San Francisco 49ers and Philadelphia Eagles. That trio still remains in focus, with sources indicating that a thorough vetting of Kelly has begun.

According to Thamel, "a thorough vetting of Kelly has begun", which includes calls to National Football League executives and a look at his NCAA issues at Oregon. Still, if Florida does want to pursue Kelly, it needs to take these steps now because of the SEC's policy about hiring coaches with past NCAA trouble.

Of course, the 53-year-old is best known for his time at OR, where he went 46-7 over four seasons from 2009-12.

As Florida searches for a replacement for former head football coach Jim McElwain, the program has begun doing research on noteworthy candidates, including Chip Kelly. Florida will play UCF in just a few weeks. Coaches will wait to see if Florida is interested in them before moving on other opportunities.
