Vols Football: Chip Kelly Reportedly Turns Down Tennessee Offer

Chip Kelly is a highly-sought after man.

The former Oregon and NFL head coach has been linked to a number of high-profile job openings, with Kelly expected to choose between the Florida Gators and UCLA Bruins in the coming days.

But while Kelly has a tough decision to make, he reportedly has already turned down a couple of offers.

In a report from USA Today‘s George Schroeder, it was revealed that Kelly turned down an offer from the Tennessee Volunteers. He’s also believed to have turned down Nebraska.

From the report:

Kelly turned down a recent offer from Tennessee, the person said. He is also believed to have turned away interest from Nebraska. According to multiple reports, Florida officials including the school’s president met with Kelly on Sunday night, hours after UCLA announced the firing of Jim Mora Jr. Kelly expressed the desire to weigh his options.

So will it be UCLA, Florida or a mystery team swooping in at the last minute? The countdown is officially on.
