Florida and Kelly are believed to be going back and forth on coaches the Gators want Kelly to keep from the current staff.
Chip Kelly is considering offers from Florida and UCLA to be their next head football coach, according to a report Wednesday by USA Today. Gruden should also receive consideration for Newsmaker of The Week honors when you consider the way his name has flown through the coaching rumor spin cycle the past several days.
The Gators met with Kelly about the vacant job Sunday, according to a person familiar with the situation. Officials returned Sunday night without a deal in place to make him the Gators’ next head coach to replace McElwain, who was sacked on October 29.

For what it’s worth, both Nebraska and Tennessee are Adidas schools.
On the “Buddy Martin Show” on Facebook on Tuesday, Martin and sports agent Darren Heitner discussed likely offset provisions in Kelly’s contract with the 49ers, who fired him after the 2016 season. “There’s also, from Iowa State, Matt Campbell”. He was sacked a year ago in a coaching overhaul that brought four new offensive coaches to Westwood.
Of course kind of money shouldn’t be a problem for schools like Florida, who have great boosters, but it is something to consider.
