Chip Kelly is going back to college football. Not to coach though. But to be an analyst. Kelly is joining ESPN as a college football and a NFL analyst. This is what Kelly said of this new venture “Over the last 30 years, I have experienced football from one perspective — as a coach. Working in television will allow me to see the game from a different angle; simultaneously, I’ll provide viewers an insight to the mind-set of a coach and team while offering alternative views of various situations.”
Let’s see what Twitter was saying about this new ESPN hire.

Now that Chip Kelly is with ESPN, I’m told he’s already put Adam Schefter on the trade block.

Looks like ESPN cleaned house so that they could bring in some fresh faces. I guess we can now put to rest all the coaching rumors involving Chip Kelly. It will be interesting to hear his take the first time a team chooses to kick the extra point instead of going for the 2 point conversion.
