The head coach has made his decision.
Chip Kelly has made his decision.
The former Oregon and NFL coach confirmed to ESPN that he’ll be the next head coach of the UCLA Bruins.
The Los Angeles Times first reported the news of Kelly reaching an agreement.
From their report:
School officials are expected to formally announce the hiring Saturday morning and introduce Kelly during a news conference on campus early next week. The agreement was confirmed by sources with knowledge of the situation who requested anonymity because the deal had not been made public. Terms of Kelly’s contract were not immediately known.
ESPN confirmed the news.
