This post isn’t meant to kick a man while he’s down; it’s more of a, “hey, what’s Chip Kelly up to?” kind of thing.

Chip is back in the college ranks now and not doing so well, off to an 0-3 start with UCLA after Saturday’s 38-14 home loss to the Fresno State Bulldogs. He’s rolling out a freshman quarterback and his defense has given up 26, 49, and 38 points in the three losses. You’d expect that against Oklahoma, but not against traditional powerhouses like Cincy or Fresno.

It’s still early, of course, but it’s pretty bad and kind of weird, as Chip had his Bruins team do jumping jacks while moving in a circle during a timeout in the weekend loss:

I don’t know if it was punitive or not, but there’s no reason to do something like this for any reason, at least not that I can think of.

He’s also developing an… interesting relationship with quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson and his father.

DTR threw an interception the other night, which resulted in Chip having some words with his young QB as he came off the field. That video was shared by “Bruin Report Online,” and Thompson-Robinson’s dad responded to the video by noting that Chip Kelly has won only four of his last 30 games when tasked with play-calling duties:

The elder Robinson went on to call Kelly’s coaching and play-calling “lousy,” claiming it’s “so bad that it demands closed practices.” He called Kelly a “million dollar coach who bears no responsibility.”

Robinson also called Kelly’s Oregon tenure a “fluke” in a response to some other guy on Twitter:

So it’s a good start for Chip Kelly out west. His team is winless and heading to Boulder to take on the unbeaten Colorado Buffs this weekend. Next weekend it’s #12 Washington at home.

Per ESPN, UCLA is 0-3 for the first time since 1971.
