Kelly agreed to a five-year contract worth $23.3M with a $9M reciprocal buyout. Kelly has worked as a TV analyst this season after spending the previous four as head coach of the San Francisco 49ers (2016) and Philadelphia Eagles (2013-15).

The former OR and National Football League head coach is finalizing an agreement to become the next coach at UCLA, Yahoo Sports' Pete Thamel tweeted on Saturday, with a deal expected to be reached "by the end of the weekend".

Football Scoop and Yahoo reported the news on Friday that Kelly was no longer considering Florida and he was expected to pick UCLA and replace Jim Mora who was sacked last Sunday, one day after losing again to rival USC.

Chip Kelly appears headed back to the school.




Chip Kelly is no longer a candidate for coaching vacancy at Florida, a person with knowledge of the situation told USA TODAY Sports.

With the Ducks, Kelly established himself as one of college football's most innovative coaches, particularly on the offensive side of the ball. Mora was 46-30 in six seasons with the Bruins. At the college level, Kelly went 46-7 during four years at OR that included a trip to the BCS National Championship game after going 12-0 in 2010.

"I am pleased to welcome Chip Kelly to UCLA, confident that he will work tirelessly to focus on the whole student, both as an athlete and as a scholar", said UCLA Chancellor Gene Block.
