Head coach Chip Kelly staying at University of Oregon

So much for "an offer he can't refuse." Chip Kelly has refused all offers to become a head coach in the NFL and will remain on the head coach at the University of Oregon, according to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport. Kelly had long discussions with the Browns and Eagles and met with the Bills over the weekend. On Saturday, it was basically assumed that he would join Cleveland, but that evaporated by Sunday morning. Then the Eagles became the favored target, but in the end, Kelly decided to stay west. Kelly has won 46 of 53 games as head coach of the Ducks, claiming the Fiesta Bowl and the Rose Bowl in the past two seasons and getting the Ducks to the BCS Championship Game in 2010. He is also responsible for one of the nation's most productive and exciting offenses.

Fantasy Analysis:

Darn. I would like to see what Kelly could do with an NFL offense. Oh, well. Maybe next year since Kelly has been heavily courted in each of the past two years and seemed to be close to jumping ship each time. Alas, one of the biggest names in the 2013 NFL coaching search is off the market for at least one more season.
