The race to land Chip Kelly could be reaching its conclusion in the coming days.
According to a report from Mark Schlabach of ESPN, the former Oregon and NFL head coach is set to choose between the Florida Gators and UCLA Bruins head coaching vacancy.
Kelly’s decision is expected in “coming days,” with no third suitor currently in the mix.
Many seem to believe the Bruins could now be the favorite to land Kelly, who could return to the Pac-12 and West Coast where he was able to make the Ducks a national championship contender.
