    Sexton isn't chips agent. Not saying it's wrong but...

  • david dunn represents kelly. sexton represents others in consideration

    but there does seem to be strong talks between fla and kelly.

  • Good luck Florida. We will see how CK does in the SEC if they get him.

    Kelly was never going to come here. If we had contacted him a month ago with pallets of unmarked cash, he STILL wouldnt come here.

    Florida is a little different prestige-wise than Arkansas. Chip Kelly would never consider coming to Arkansas. Florida makes a lot of sense.

    Same...i have always had a weird feeling about him. Maybe i just have gas.

  • According to Florida fans the guy tweeting that is not really an insider, he just wants to be. 
  • #16 by GoHogzzGo on 13 Nov 2017
  • I believe the reports said UF is vetting him, not that he chose UF. Chip could still go to a number of places.

    Do you mean figuratively or like Kevin Spacey?

    Yes. The commissioner has to approve it but he will.

  • If true, we need to make a run at Scott Frost ASAP! Basically everyone was saying Frost was supposed to be their top choice. Hope they go with Kelly so we can have a shot at Frost.

    I still think he wanted the Nebraska job all along. His bargaining position may have just gone down a little.

    That could be the case, but he would be my first call. I'd make him tell us no.

  • Kelley will be dangerous if he can get the recruits.  At FLA, he should be able to get recruits.
  • #33 by Pork Twain on 13 Nov 2017
  • I cannot imagine Chip Kelly with the talent in the state of Florida.  Just look what he did out west, in no-man's land.  Of course failure is always possible with a new coach, but I think this would shift some power in the east.
  • #34 by TrueBlue on 13 Nov 2017
  • It seemed that Kelly was at Oregon forever as HC, but he was only there four years. After that, he spent four horrible years in the NFL. Back in 2009, the HUNH was pretty new, but now so many teams are doing it makes you wonder if it would transition to the SEC or not.
  • #35 by Bob Slydell on 13 Nov 2017
  • Yes. The commissioner has to approve it but he will.

    Interesting.  Is approval required in perpetuity?  His show cause expired a long time ago.  I'm guessing that any coach who has ever had a show cause requires approval.

    His first 2 years in the NFL went well

  • Supposedly, Chip Kelly does not like to recruit.

    If so, then he will not like having to recruit against a resurgent Miami (FL) program and a Florida State program that recruits at an elite level.

    With the right assistants, he will not have to and there is plenty of talent in Florida to go around.

    Chip wouldnt hurt Saban. Who was the one team that Oregon always struggled against when Chip was there? Stanford. What did Stanford have that other PAC teams during that time didn't? Deep DL and a physical, pro-style offense.

    How well will he do when he has to go against at least 4-5 Stanfords each year in the SEC?
  • #41 by BILLYBOB on 14 Nov 2017
  • A great move by the Gators. CCK built a perennial championship contender in a place that is extremely hard to recruit, with absolutely no tradition, money, or facilities.  Florida is arguably the most fertile recruiting state in the country...and has deep tradition, lots of money, and incredible facilities. Plus, most of Kellyís salary is still being paid by the 49erís.
  • #42 by Mike_e on 14 Nov 2017
  • As long as he doesn't wind up at aTm.

    That would just be wrong.
  • #43 by Inhogswetrust on 14 Nov 2017
  • Hasn't Kelly had former issues with the NCAA?

    Yes. Florida doesn't care. They are one of those win at all cost types. They've had big trouble with the NCAA before.

  • If true...look out.
  • #45 by TNhawgfan on 14 Nov 2017
  • Don't buy it. Finebaum and others who actually know and talk with him all say he will coach again on the west coast
  • #46 by holeinthewall on 14 Nov 2017

    That would be Miami keeping the kids home like Ridley.  It is already turning Miami favor.
  • #47 by jackflash on 14 Nov 2017
