Chip Kelly to Remain at Oregon
Chip Kelly has decided to stay at the University of Oregon.
After conducting two interviews in Arizona after Thursdays Fiesta Bowl Kelly wasnt comfortable leaving college for the pro ranks.
The news was first reported by Adam Schefter of ESPN.
On Friday it was reported that Kelly was closing in on a contract to be the next head coach of the Cleveland Browns, but on Saturday Kelly spent nine hours interviewing for the Eagles vacancy.
Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie, team president Don Smolenski and general manager Howie Roseman boarded a plane for Denver to interview Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy, but that interview lasted only a few hours.
This is the second coach this week to spurn the NFL and the Eagles to remain at their current university-- Penn State head coach Bill O'Brien announced on Wednesday that he'd continue on at Happy Valley.
The Eagles plan to continue interviews this week when they meet with Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley and Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians, although Arians was hospitalized Sunday afternoon at a Baltimore area hospital.
