If you can win games in the PAC-10, you have what it takes to be an NFL coach?

They rarely succeed in the NFL.

Carroll had 15 years of NFL experience before Seattle. He also ran a real offense at USC.

Harbaugh has just working his way to the NFL, everyone knew that's where he would wind up, he also ran a pro offense.

Schiano is half way thru his first season, too early to judge.

Over time I am beginning to love the idea of Chip Kelly, Bwood has been saying it for quite sometime. He is really something at Oregon and I believe he would be a fantastic NFL head coach, I say bring em in I'm on the bandwagon now

He's doing good on the recruiting end. Next year will be telling if UCLA is going in the right direction.

The good news is it should be perfect timing if Cam flakes out to grab Hundley in 2016 (JOKE)

Most coaches don't succeed in the NFL regardless of origin. Being an NFL head coach is really, really tough.

Personally I don't care where they come from if the can get the job done, I'm just very skeptical about college coaches using us as their test run. If they've coached in the NFL before I feel better about it, but to me Kelly looks to be the proto-typical college coach who runs a gimmick offense that just won't succeed at the NFL level.

It probably wouldn't work in the NFL. But as someone else said, Chip Kelly is smart enough to realize this. He would have to incorporate some of what he does at Oregon into a NFL offense. I believe he can do this.

Kelly's offense (unlike Chud's) runs the ball with his RBs very effectively...and they aren't gimmicky runs. They are well blocked runs. If it came down to another coordinator or Chip Kelly then I'd take Kelly. HC experience matters...especially with this QB.

I dont know much about him other than a few articles posted here. Would Kelly take an OC position or straight to HC, no questions asked?
