After being fired by the San Francisco 49ers, there was immediate speculation about whether Chip Kelly could potentially return to the college coaching ranks.
Well, on Tuesday, the former Oregon coach addressed the possibility while speaking with FOX Sports.
According to Kelly, he will evaluate all options and will not rule out a college return.
“I evaluate all jobs individually,” Kelly said. “I wouldn’t rule anything out.”
During his four seasons at Oregon, Kelly was an impressive 46–7, including an appearance in the 2012 national championship. Kelly led one of the most dynamic and electrifying offenses at the collegiate level, but that success never translated to the NFL.
Kelly flamed out in Philadelphia, before a miserable campaign in San Francisco.
If Kelly hopes to return to coaching glory, it looks like a job in the FBS would set him up for the best chance at success.
