Oh wow this is some high quality kool aid. +1
I agree with a lot of this as most recruits had already stated what is most important is the staff staying in tact more than Chip staying.
Wow. Takes a lot to leave me stunned. But wow. Chip deeked me out of my cleats.
I think I know what changed his mind... The 49ers
Wow I'm shocked like the rest of you but let's see the official announcement before we jump tp conclusions. I don't hate CK for leaving, he's in a tough spot and there to no right way to make this decision the timing would never be right but it does truly suck for us no so many levels, lets hope our other coaches can recover quickly and keep this recruiting class together and snag a few more....man this news sucks!
it's official now.
With all due respect, where is there any proof Kelly told any recruit he would for sure be the coach?
Dude will be fired in 3 years. The way he just did this to UO, the fans in Philly won't give him an inch now if he finishes out of the playoffs.
Dude, this recruiting class is done for.
Kelly just threw his coaches and players in front of a bus. Are you kidding me? He lied to all of them. And then makes an 11th hour exit and they hear about it on the news.
You guys will be OK, plus your cheerleaders are still hot.

Chip just wanted to see where Monte Kiffen landed before making his decision.
Also it might be better that he left during a down recruiting cycle anyway. Helps set us up for next years cycle by preventing as much negative recruiting. We just need a strong season on the field to keep us rolling.
Where is his spine? I had accepted the notion of him leaving 2 weeks ago, but this changes my opinion for dramatically. My second favorite NFL team is who ever is playing the Eagles.
True that +1
Go easy on Bolden... he is a proven good guy. He's been here longer than you.
...never mind, he's got it covered.

Appreciate it man. That guy should be banned and not allowed back on any 247 platform. That was a total waste of time responding to an idiot like that.
Should Kelly have told his assistant coaches? YES! But to say that Chip screwed us over is not true. We would not be here if it weren't for Chip. Will we lose some PSA's, probably. I think Chip was planning to stay at Oregon, but the Eagles called and said they would give him control over personnel. How can you expect him not to take the job when he wants to coach in the NFL, and it's on the east cost.
Now, hopefully Oregon moves quickly to promote MH to head coach, and they hit the recruiting trail like there is no tomorrow to try and salvage this class. Campbell get on Wilson and Tyner! Frost and Helfrich get on the twins!!! GO DUCKS!!!
No offense Alabama, but your ISH is offensive to some folks here right now.
We'll be fine and can handle the sharks in the tank.

Not as bad as say a Todd Graham move, but still kinda a dick move on CK's part.
No offense taken at all. I understand it sucks, trust me, weve been there. Oregon has a solid foundation and will be just fine. Do you think they will really promote the OC to the Head Coach like they said they would if Kelly left?
Personally I think it would be the safe guy to go with. I wouldnt mind seeing them test the waters too though.
Really? MB had us going just fine, and has a proven record of hiring great OC. Chip gets way to much credit, as did Tedford before him, for what Bellotti was able to do.
Yea, Philly must have met his demands. Plus seeing how the option is working in the NFL had to make him a little antsy to get there. Name Heif immediately and get Coach Cam out to Dontre's.
Enjoy Life, it has an expiration date.
I just looked outside. It's sunny, the river is still running, and there are people sharing stories and laughing. The world goes on.
This shouldn't be completely surprising. The Eagles position was still open and clearly they wanted Chip. Now they have him.
Oregon football is much more than any single person. The AD will execute the plan to replace Kelly and we will move on. We may see a few hits in this year's recruiting class, however, we will have an awesome 2013 and get back on track with recruiting in 2014.
Good luck Chip! Thanks for coming west and helping move Oregon football to the next level. Next man up! Achieve the goal! A National Championship!
Mullens needs to have a presser this afternoon promoting Helf to HC, and Frost to OC. Damage control. Then say we are going after Jerry Rice as receivers coach :)
