Chip Kelly to return to Oregon, according to reports

USA TODAY Sports

Oregon head coach Chip Kelly will not enter the NFL coaching ranks this year, as he elects to return to the Ducks.

Chip Kelly has turned down offers from both the Cleveland Browns and the Philadelphia Eagles and will return to Oregon, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Reports surfaced last week that Chip Kelly and the Browns were close to a deal, but different reports Sunday morning indicated that Kelly was no longer a possibility for Cleveland and that he was leaning towards staying at Oregon, although the Philadelphia Eagles were still a possibility. Schefter's report confirms that Kelly again does not want to move into the NFL coaching ranks.

Kelly has achieved immense success while at Oregon. In his four-year tenure, Kelly has a 46-7 record, 33-3 in conference play. He has played in a BCS bowl in each of those four seasons, including the National Championship Game in 2010, which the Ducks lost to Cam Newton and the Auburn Tigers. This past season, Oregon was 12-1 and defeated Kansas State in the Fiesta Bowl.
