Sportsbook Betting On Chip Kelly Returning To The College Game In 2018

Chip Kelly speaking as the head coach of the 49ers.

A sportsbook is betting on Chip Kelly returning to the college ranks in 2018.

Chip Kelly is going to be back coaching college football in 2018.

That's what one sportsbook is predicting, anyway.

Sportsline has listed odds on Kelly's 2018 job and coaching college football is the favorite. Kelly is going to be an analyst for ESPN this season. Staying as an analyst is the second most-likely occupation, while returning to the NFL is third.

Kelly spent four seasons as Oregon's head coach and four seasons in the NFL with the Eagles and 49ers.

The odds:

NCAA Coach -200 (risk $200 to gain $100)
Media Analyst +185 (risk $185 to gain $100)
NFL Coach +750

One Vegas insider thinks Notre Dame could be a potential destination, too.

BookMaker spokesman Scott Cooley said he couldn't provide odds for which college program would be the favorite to land Kelly at this point, but did mention Notre Dame as an intriguing option.
