Earlier this season, talking heads and reporters made a non-story about the fact that the University of Florida would probably dial Chip Kelly’s phone number about a coaching job, and that Chip Kelly would probably answer the phone when it rang. If there is no chance of him leaving the NFL for the Florida Gators — which there isn’t — then it’s a moot point. However, that has not stopped sources mentioning that someone at Florida will call Chip Kelly.
It’s not the first time someone is going to call Chip Kelly or any other coach with college experience for a college opening — Jim Harbaugh probably gets a call once a week and that guy is a nightmare — but it’s not a story every time. In fact, a source just told me Kyle was going to get a call from a perspective game day blogger. That’s some breaking news.
