The Florida Gators met with Chip Kelly yesterday about their vacant head coaching position, according to a person familiar with the situation, who said athletic director Scott Stricklin and five key staffers met with Kelly in New Hampshire. Kelly had a lot of success at Oregon, before moving to the NFL and not faring so well in Philadelphia and later San Francisco.
Representatives from the Florida Gators met with Chip Kelly about their vacant head-coaching job Sunday, The Associated Press has reported, citing a person familiar with the situation.
The person said athletic director Scott Stricklin and five key staffers met with Kelly in New Hampshire. The person spoke to The AP on the condition of anonymity because the Gators are not publicly discussing the coaching search.
Stricklin and his assistants flew in and out of Ocala, Florida, about a half-hour from Florida's campus.
