Eugene, OR (Sports Network) - After meeting with multiple NFL teams about
their head coaching vacancies, Oregon head football coach Chip Kelly has
decided to remain at the school, according to multiple reports.
NFL.com reported late Sunday night that Kelly told the Philadelphia Eagles he
was staying with Oregon, despite spending several hours with the Eagles'
brass, just one day after multiple reports had Kelly on the verge of becoming
the Cleveland Browns head coach.
Cleveland, which met with Kelly on Friday in Arizona, reportedly abandoned the
idea of hiring Kelly and were rebooting their search for a new head coach
before the Oregon bench boss' decision was made public.
Kelly, who's gone 46-7 in four seasons in Eugene, flirted with a jump to the
pro ranks last season and spoke with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers before pulling
out of the running late to return to Oregon.
