Rumor killer on Chip Kelly wanting 'total control'

56 posts in this topic

BTW, the Panthers are in no rush, and we don't even know if Rivera is getting fired, not really thinking about Chip Kelly being an option here right now.

Kelly scares me - he'll either be a success or a huge flop. All the other recent college to NFL coaches have had some NFL experience, while Kelly has squat in that department:

Three NFL head coaches left college head-coaching jobs to take their current positions, but all three of them had very different backgrounds than Kelly: Jim Harbaugh was an NFL player for 14 seasons and an NFL assistant for two seasons before getting the head job at Stanford and then jumping to the 49ers. Pete Carroll was an NFL head coach in two different spots and had four different NFL assistant jobs before becoming head coach at USC and then leaving for the Seahawks. And Greg Schiano had three seasons of experience as an NFL assistant before going to Rutgers and then leaving for the Buccaneers.

Not really worried about him as a head coach. I think he'll adapt wherever he ends up. If I'm running a team though, there's no chance I'm giving him full control over personnel.

I'd give him full control if I was an owner... Id also put clauses in his contract so that if I didn't like what he was doing (by talking to players and others on the coaching staff/scouting dept. I could cut my losses with minimal financial obligation. I coach can get fired just as easily as any employee that works anywhere. Giving him "full control" is a BS term that ESPN came up with anyways, and now everyone has run with it. It's easy to confuse the sheople... The Wolves on the other hand are never convinced

good luck on your search for a HC.

Kelly will be in Carolina. With Philly more than likely cutting their ties with Vick, where do you think Kelly would want to coach? You qb can be Cam Newton or Nick Foley....don't get me started on the browns.

JR is waiting hire the next GM, then make his move on Kelly.

If Kelly just wants to go the NFL and isn't holding out for an ideal landing spot he might have a job by the time we even know if we have an opening.

Cleveland appears ready to write him a blank check and give him the keys to the franchise.

That's like getting the keys to a 96 Hyundai....why take those keys when you know it's going be a headache. We're all just guessing here, but Jellys got a pretty sweet gig at Oregon, he has no reason to jump ship at the first offer.
