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.
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.
The #Raiders interviewed #UCLA coach Chip Kelly at least twice for their vacant OC job under Antonio Pierce, sources say. Kelly appeared open to a return to the NFL… but Pierce ultimate chose Kliff Kingsbury.
