Chip Kelly is the new coach of the Philadelphia Eagles, according to league sources. No announcement yet.

Just heard it on the herd..... ABSOLUTLY SUCKS !!!!!!!!!!
It sucks for all the players and recruits that Chip told he was 100% duck too. Guy just lost alot of respect from me. Leaving is one thing but telling the world you are coming back after NFL interviews just to leave again is wrong.
FAAAAWWWWWWWWKKKKKKKKKKKKK!!!!!!!!!!!!! So effing pissed. I was able to accept it after the Fiesta Bowl but not right now.

On the bright side, if there is one, at least only this years class will take the recruiting hit. As opposed to the same crap being filled in recruits ears next year as well.
I'll wait for that announcement.
Urban Meyer is now in route to Texas.
Thanks for Wilson handed to us with a bow

Good point, he screwed this class up already. Helf can start doing things his way.

I don’t expect the offense to miss a beat if, as expected ,Mark Helfrich gets promoted to HC. I have no idea if there will be any recruiting impact. If there is, I would expect it to be a one-time blip.
Yeah, Wilson is likely gone along with Robinson twins and maybe a few more. Kelly should have handled this better this is amateur hour.

Well thats not very nice......
Chip never made a statement that he was coming back. Only that he was going to listen to NFL teams. But he was obviously playing the best game of poker ever played.

It Starts @Cassidy_Rob Robinson twins (Oregon commits) will will open recruitment back up. USC & Notre Dame in mix.This via Tyree Robinson.
Robinson twins are gone.
Robinson twins have now decommitted and I fully expect Wilson to follow suit
Yup, the change or direction was really the worst case scenario. He couldn't have handled this worse.
It appears he just used coming back as leverage. Terrible.
To bad for you Urban is really in route to Oregon. Thanks for your coach with a bow.
Just kidding we dont want that scum bag. But thanks for trolling....
hahaha you made bro about the rose bowl?
Sanctions HE is responsible for?
Regardless, no one knows anything about this yet since there still isn't a date scheduled for a hearing in front of the Commitee On Infractions. Possible penalties won't even be discussed until after that. Any speculation on this is nothing more than stupid internet rhetoric.
I think there is a good chance that we will look back on this as a good thing for the program:
Uncertainty is costly. I think it is reasonable to argue that Oregon's current recruiting class reflects a lack of focus on CK's part. Uncertainty regarding Chip made us highly vulnerable to negative recruiting.
As in most things, the head guy gets too much credit when things go well. As long as the staff remains largely intact, I think we have a high probability of a smooth transition and continued success.
Hope we don't loose any of the big fish from our small pool of verbal commits.
Thanks for the ride, Chip. Glad you came. Appreciate what you accomplished. Wish you well on Sundays. Glad you are leaving if we do not have your full attention....
I agree with this. to want to coach in the pros is understandable but even if you still have the want/drive to go to the pros its as simple as dont make a public announcement confirming you are staying... what a classless act. he is bailing just as things are about to hit the fan.
Don't worry guys, Kiffin is available
Chip just took a giant dump on the University of Oregon.
Not impressed... and not worried either.
We will be fine.
Maybe a little. But now is a bad time troll. Its one thing to come over and look at us all jumping from the ledge but to throw Wilson in everyones face is a low blow and really really low. We already understand that our recruiting class is going to get hammered.
