A third suitor has joined Florida and UCLA in the courting of coach Chip Kelly, FootballScoop.com reports (via CBS Sports).

According to the report, Kelly - the former OR and National Football League coach who is now an ESPN analyst - has received offers of around $6 million per year from each school.

The Florida Gators search for a new head coach after firing Jim McElwain continues.

Asked about his personal preference for style of play, Moos told the Journal Star during his first week on the job, "My preference ... every offense, sooner or later, is going to get defended".


The Los Angeles Times reported Kelly met with a contingent of athletics officials from UCLA as the Bruins look to replace Jim Mora Jr., who was sacked on Sunday. The Cornhuskers are expected to pursue Central Florida's Scott Frost, a former Nebraska quarterback who might also consider Florida if the Gators don't hire Kelly. Would he favor a return to the West Coast where, even though he's a New Hampshire native, he found the most success he's had as a head coach? His NFL stint was far less successful, finishing with a 26-21 record with the Eagles and a 2-14 mark with the 49ers. Kelly was sacked by the San Francisco 49ers in 2016.

Kelly posted a 46-7 record at OR from 2009-12 and was widely regarded as one of the best offensive minds in the game during that span. The Bruins are believed to be attractive to Kelly given his West Coast ties, but have the drawback of being an Under Armour school (Kelly has a long-standing relationship with Nike founder Phil Knight dating back to his OR days).
