Here’s reportedly how much the Bruins and Gators are offering.
USA TODAY has an update on the Chip Kelly situation.
The former Oregon and NFL head coach is expected to make a decision on Florida and UCLA soon. He met with the Gators on Sunday and the Bruins on Tuesday, according to multiple reports.
USA TODAY’s George Schroeder has the details on the reported offers.
Both schools are reportedly making offers in the range of $6 million/year.
The offers were in the range of $6 million per year, the person said. The person was not authorized to speak on the matter because of the sensitivity of the situation and requested anonymity.
While Florida is considered by many to be the best available job, Kelly has never been pegged as a conventional thinker. UCLA might appeal to Kelly for several reasons, including its location in the prime recruiting area of Southern California, a lesser spotlight compared to the fishbowl-like attention of the SEC jobs, and his familiarity with the Pac-12.
A $6 million/year salary would place Kelly among the five highest-paid head coaches in the country. https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/ncaaf/2017/11/22/chip-kelly-considers-offers-florida-ucla-turns-down-tennessee/888551001/
