Chip Kelly is one of the funniest personalities in college football. As the head coach of the Oregon Ducks football team, he provides fans with a lovable face of the program.
For media personalities covering Kelly, the job can be a little bit more difficult. “The sports reporters are very underpaid in the state,” he has said. “There should be a pension system for them and maybe some of them could retire early.”
His bark, of course, is bigger than his bite. While he can be intimidating, his candid honesty makes him an even more likable character.
In college football, September to December offers fans a season’s worth of material to analyze. January features bowl season as well as recruiting speculation, which will spill into the month of February.
When March comes around, college football is too often forgotten to the second half of the basketball season, March Madness in college sports and spring training in baseball.
Luckily for Oregon fans, they have a head coach that can make fans happy, even in the dullest month for college football.
“Sometimes I can be sarcastic,” Kelly has said. “I don’t know if people realize that.”
For the first time in Bleacher Report history, the brilliant mind of Chip Kelly has received an expose.
