Could a college team poach Chip Kelly?

It dogged him while he was in Philadelphia and it appears it’s back: Rumors that Chip Kelly could be soon out of the NFL and back in charge of a major college football program.

CBS writer Jason La Canfora contends a Kelly return to the NCAA is the talk of the league, quoting one unnamed executive as saying, “He just keeps running the same shit and it isn’t fooling anybody. Do you think they could bring him back to Oregon?”

This season has been tough for the Faithful, but losing Kelly would be another unfortunate development in a lost season.
