Kelly agreed to a five-year contract worth $23.3M with a $9M reciprocal buyout. While Florida is a great job, it just didn't seem to fit with Kelly who coached in the Pac-12 during his time as the offensive coordinator and later as the head coach of the Oregon Ducks. The Bruins had just fired Jim Mora just a week earlier following a loss to USC and Kelly was the subject of all the coaching carousel rumors.

"I am thrilled to welcome Chip Kelly to Westwood", said Guerrero. He previously had been named AP Coach of the Year at OR in 2010-11, when they lost the BCS Championship game to Auburn, compiling a 46-7 record with the Ducks from 2009-12 before jumping to the NFL. His Knights beat rival USF on Friday to improve to 11-0, with a shot to make it to a New Year's Six bowl game by beating Memphis in next week's AAC title game. Since then Kelly has been working as an analyst for ESPN.
