UCLA head coach Chip Kelly tied to NFL offensive coordinator opening

The coaching carousel this offseason continues to appear to be never-ending.

Just a day after Boston College head coach Jeff Hafley left Chesnut Hill for the defensive coordinator spot with the Green Bay Packers, reports have surfaced that UCLA Bruins head football coach Chip Kelly is also eyeing coordinator jobs in the NFL.

According to Jeremy Fowler of ESPN, Kelly is considered a potential candidate for the Washington Commanders offensive coordinator opening under new head coach Dan Quinn.

Additionally, NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport reported on Thursday night that Kelly also interviewed twice for the Oakland Raiders offensive coordinator job this offseason. The Raiders and head coach Antonio Pierce ultimately chose to hire USC assistant and former Texas Tech and Arizona Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury.

Notably, Kelly spent the 2013 through 2016 seasons as a head coach in the NFL with the Philadelphia Eagles (2013-15) and San Francisco 49ers (2016).
