this is kinda funny ...
Larry Scott joked that Chip pulled an option keeper when choosing to stay at Oregon. Turns out that fake was better than anybody thought..
Didn't Mullens allude to the fact that he was going to do a national search? Does Oregon have time for that now?
Do you think he has already interviewed enough candidates to satisfy the minority candidate rule?
We had ton's of Wiffs with Kelly, now we'll have lots of decommits and very little time to fill the new holes up. Recruiting wise this sucks. Coaching wise this hurts, hopefully Helfrich can manage. Best of Luck to Kelly, great coach, poker player, car buyer that he is.
Less than top 25 class here we come, possibly less than top 30.
There is no minority candidate rule in college football
It's a state university and the head coach is an employee of the state. We have to follow the law regarding the hiring. The law says at least one minority has to be interviewed for the position. The AD also said he was ready to do a nation wide search when coach Kelly was interviewing initially with the Browns and Eagles.
In reality, I think it will take longer than our fan base would like. It is one of the most desirable coaching jobs in the country. I'm sure we'll be fine.
I gotta go make some money and chase the paper. That's my reality.
It is a state of Oregon Rule
There is one in the State of Oregon though.
Interview Cam and Pellum this morning. Or the whole staff for that matter. It's a stupid law, with an easy way around it.
But there is Oregon state law.
Big props to the state of Oregon.
get your work done then son!
I really think Oregon will have alot of good guys wanting to interview, the thing is they have already announced even before the Fiesta Bowl that they would promote your OC if Chip left. Things change but that might cause a big stir with the current staff.
This is what I was saying. They prob offered him more control. That and now he's seeing first hand with RG3, CAM, Wilson and Kaepernick that the league is ready for him. Must also fire him up that his ideas are being successfully implemented in the NFL - no doubt he believes he can do it better.
Question is does he keep Vick or go after another QB? Vick has big time health issues.
Man I hope the Ducks don't promote Helfrich. I can't think of the last assistant to take over for a National championship caliber coach that succeeded. Bring in a stud like Chris Peterson and move forward
Yeah that's what I think. He sees it working in the NFL and he doesn't want everyone else stealing his thunder on something he thinks he's the best at. I would have a hard time with that if I was Chip too. He could have handled this better, but it's really hard for me to be seriously pissed at him. It sucks for him though that he'll never get to use his hot tub.
Can't wait to see the Eagles Uniforms with pink streamers and bedazzles on them...
I won't be surprised to see Vick there for a year while CK looks for someone more permanent. I won't be surprised in Darron Thomas ends up a Eagle, and also if they draft Scott from Arizona.
I'd like to see y'all hire Chad Morris from Clemson. Then watch Dabo be Jean Chizik 2.0

LOL if you think Belotti was half the coach Chip was
I actually feel bad for the token guy who gets that interview. Everyone knows its going to Helfrich and rightly so.
Might be a possibility.
Just hope there is not a long delay.

DT has the talent to be a practice squad guy. He knows the O and with Vick as the QB, you know they are going to need depth of guys who know the O, cause Vick will miss at least some time due to injury he always does. Foles isn't long for Philly now either, he' just doesn't have what it takes to run what Kelly runs.
You must not think very well. Chip Kelly himself was promoted from OC. And David Shaw was promoted at Stanford when Harbaugh left.
