ESPN - Former Oregon coach Chip Kelly is joining ESPN as a studio analyst next season. ESPN announced Friday it has signed Kelly to a multiyear deal. Kelly will primarily be part of Saturday pregame, halftime and wrap-up shows on ESPN2. He’ll also provide NFL analysis on Sundays during SportsCenter. The 53-year-old Kelly spent the last four seasons in the NFL, coaching the Philadelphia for three years and San Francisco for one. Kelly was fired by the 49ers after going 2-14 last season. He was 26-21 with a playoff appearance for the Eagles. Before jumping to the NFL, Kelly spent four seasons as Oregon head coach and went 46-7. In 2010, Kelly led the Ducks to the BCS title game and was The Associated Press coach of the year. “I spoke with a lot of people this offseason about different situations for me — in coaching and TV,” Kelly said in a statement. “I had various opportunities in both. In the end, I have had a relationship with ESPN for many years from when I was coaching and after speaking with them, I decided it was the best step for me to take.”

Chip swimming in that TV money like –

Good for Chip. Well, not really. I don’t care. The man somehow turned a devastating NFL career into a TV gig. Which is somewhat shocking for someone who HATES the media.
And talking. And overall success. If anything that chair will stay warm until the next big PAC-12 job opens up and Chip will return to where he was always destined to be. Also nice to see ESPN laying off all kinds of proven talent to bring on a longshot who has never produced before on the big stage. KNOCK KNOCK MOTHERFUCKERS!

Or not. Dammit I hate what a cocktease this Eagles franchise has always been, and will forever be.
