Chip Kelly Came Up With A Perfect Response When Asked Why He Wasn't Interested In The Florida Job

Chip Kelly spent more than two decades in the world of college football, and the 51-year-old coach thrived at Oregon, so he'll likely always be tied to the college ranks in some fashion. 

This is likely why Kelly's name is often mentioned when a big college job opens up, as it was in recent weeks with Florida looking to hire a coach (the Gators have since brought in former Colorado State coach Jim McElwain). 

Today, Kelly was asked why he wasn't interested in the Florida job. His response is perfect.

Kelly is being sarcastic, of course, as many NFL people questioned if his up-tempo Oregon offense would work with the Philadelphia Eagles.
