Well, this is good (and surprising) news:
Oregon coach Chip Kelly has decided to turn down a chance to go to the NFL and instead will return to the Ducks, according to league sources.
Kelly was intrigued with the Philadelphia Eagles‘ head coaching job but decided he wasn’t comfortable leaving the college game.
The Cleveland Browns are the only other NFL team known to have interviewed Kelly. The two sides met last week but the Browns decided to reboot their coach search after leaving Arizona late Sunday morning without landing Kelly, sources said.
The Eagles are the only other NFL team known to have interviewed Kelly.
Ducks still have to survive the NCAA’s Arbitrary Sanction Dispensation System, but outlook for next year is QUACK.
