The University of Florida had been pursuing Kelly, but the Gators chose to move in another direction this week.

With Florida and Kelly no longer a possibility, UCLA is the increasingly likely new destination for the former coach of the Oregon Ducks - if Kelly returns to coaching.

Florida has moved on from Chip Kelly as its potential next head coach, multiple sources have told Yahoo Sports.

After four seasons in the National Football League with the Philadelphia Eagles and San Francisco 49ers, the former Oregon Ducks head coach is finalizing a deal to become the new head coach of the UCLA Bruins, reports Yahoo!


Kelly, 53, has not coached since last season when he led the 49ers to a 2-14 record.

He won 12 games in each of his last three years with OR and went 10-3 in his first season with the school in 2009.

Kelly is tasked with replacing Jim Mora, who went 46-30 in his six years in charge of the Bruins but was just 28-26 in Pac-12 play and 17-19 overall in the past three seasons. At the college level, Kelly went 46-7 during four years at OR that included a trip to the BCS National Championship game after going 12-0 in 2010.

Kelly also won 10 games with Philadelphia in his second season, but the team missed out on the playoffs. San Francisco fired Kelly following the 2016 season.
