Chip Kelly will be the biggest name in the 2017 coaching carousel. And a number of SEC fans would be thrilled if he landed at there school, specifically Tennessee, Ole Miss and Arkansas.
But per ESPN’s Alex Scarbrough, if Kelly is going to join an SEC school, it won’t be as a head coach. He says if Chip Kelly comes back to college football, it will be as a quality coach at Alabama.
Kelly is working as a TV analyst for ESPN this year. He previously worked for the Philadelphia Eagles and San Francisco 49ers after a very successful run at Oregon.
Ole Miss already has a head coach opening, and Tennessee, Arkansas and Texas A&M may end up joining them by the end of the season, given how those schools have started this year.
