Chip Kelly to decide between UCLA and Florida

Chip Kelly can be at his home in New Hampshire, as he reportedly was last weekend, when headlines are created because media outlets are reporting that a contingent of University of Florida officials have made the trip north to convince Kelly he should be the next Gator coach.

On Monday it was reported that UCLA was heavily targeting former OR head coach Chip Kelly.

And then Chip Kelly will again merge into the pack of elite college football coaches.

Kelly has familiarity with the West Coast, serving as an offensive coordinator/head coach with OR from 2007-12 and the head coach of the 49ers in 2016.

Florida's vacated position comes after Jim McElwain was sacked for cause in late October during Year 3 of his stint in Gainesville. UCLA's job came open on Sunday, when they fired Jim Mora.

Does Kelly want to get in the rough-and-tumble SEC recruiting wars, despite publicly sayin in 2013 - when he was coach of the NFL's Philadelphia Eagles - that he doesn't miss recruiting at all? 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).

As (g) rumors continue to swirl in Knoxville around which coach will replace ousted Tennessee head coach Butch Jones, it appears one name has been removed from the conversation. The group immediately tried to pursue Kelly for UCLA's job and a source told ESPN that Aikman is putting a "full-court press" on Kelly to accept the UCLA offer.

Nebraska is expected to fire Mike Riley after Friday's regular-season finale with Iowa.
