UCLA hires Chip Kelly

Report: Chip Kelly not coming to the SEC as Florida moves on, eyes Central Florida's Scott Frost

Kelly went 46-7 at OR between 2009-12, including victories in the Rose Bowl and Fiesta Bowl. "UCLA is a world-class institution with a distinguished history in athletics, and we will do our part to uphold its tradition of excellence".

Kelly has been named the new coach of UCLA, replacing Jim Mora who was sacked in November.

Kelly has a 46-7 career record at OR, including an appearance in the BCS National Championship Game and finished in the top-five in three of his four seasons with the Ducks. Offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch was named interim head coach for the remainder of the season. Although Kelly didn't do well in the National Football League, there's every reason to think he can do well as the coach of the Bruins.

The college game knows Kelly for the massive success he had at Oregon.

The 49ers now owe Kelly approximately $15 million, sources told ESPN's Darren Rovell.

The jury remains out on whether Kelly can overtake USC and aid in UCLA becoming a top-tier program in Los Angeles but, if he can't do it, there is every reason to believe that most could not.

"I am pleased to welcome Chip Kelly to UCLA, confident that he will work tirelessly to focus on the whole student, both as an athlete and as a scholar", said UCLA Chancellor Gene Block. "I look forward to his presence in Westwood". Under Mora, the Bruins dropped six straight games against ranked programs.

UCLA does now have the nation's No. 14-ranked recruiting class for 2018 and has finished with a top-20 class the past three years.
