The speculation on Chip is finally over as he agrees to become UCLA's next football coach.  Chip goes to Westwood for 5-years, $23.3M that includes a $9M reciprocal buyout.  

 

Florida courted Chip hard but in the end he said he preferred to live on the West Coast over Gainesville.  Translation, he'd rather go back to owning the Pac 12 instead of competing with Saban every year.  I do think its interesting Kelly goes to an Under Armour school.  He was bff's with Phil Knight while at Oregon and we all know how that went.

 

Calling my shot, UCLA will be in the playoff by year 3 for Kelly.

Man, I was hoping he'd go to Florida. I always thought UCLA was pretty lame, but I'm sure he'll change that.

UCLA started to pump a ton of money into their football facilities, anticipating Mora would take the program back up the ladder. Not only that but the athletic program signed a monstrous deal with Under Armour last year. 

 

I think many forget just how good Kelly was at Oregon. My son is a huge Oregon fan because he started paying attention to college ball when Oregon's flashy offense and non-stop uni combinations captivated the younger audiences.

 

This hire puts a ton of pressure on USC. Clay Helton might be a good coach but it won't take long for Chip to out-recruit him on the West Coast.
