As news broke that Oregon head coach Chip Kelly was going to remain at Oregon, it seemed that he was content there or was possibly waiting for a better job opportunity to open up in the NFL.
If you ask John Canzano of The Oregonian, it is the latter. The New England Patriots head coaching job to be exact.
Apparently, it’s “the dream gig of every little kid who grows up in New England,” writes Canzano.
He also added that “Belichick has unique control of Robert Kraft’s franchise in the same way Kelly does at Oregon.”
Whether or not you want to believe this theory is completely up to you. I see no end to the Belichick reign in New England, so Kelly may be waiting awhile if it’s true.
