    I've seen the rumors on other forum sites, but nothing from anything I would deem official.

    Same here, I heard on VSIN radio. They wouldn't confirm it.

    This will be bad news for the SEC. Florida will be back fast.

    I thought all along he was at the top of their list, I'm not shocked if this is true.

    I would think it would be good news for the SEC. They’ve taken a lot of bashing the last two seasons.

    I would love to see him coaching against Saban! I hope it happens. I still THINK he could coach in the NFL but KNOW his system works in college.

    That would put him around top ten then I'm sure he would have bonuses?

    SEC bylaws state that the Commissioner would have to approve any school offering him a job prior to it being offered, due to his past NCAA transgressions.

    I can confirm that Greg Stanley has given approval to the schools interested that Chip Kelly is good to go.

    While there is still nothing official out there, I do believe Chip Kelly would be a good fit for Florida for multiple reasons. 1) The cupboard isn't bare. Felipe Franks isn't a great QB, but Chip has won with a lot less talented QB's. 2) Chip HATES recruiting. Good thing about Florida is you don't really have to work that hard at it. Just get in your car and within a 2 hour radius you can build a pretty solid recruiting class every year.
    3) They are in the weakest division in college football.
