The Philadelphia Eagles have hired Chip Kelly as their new head coach (via ESPN.com), and the Oregon Ducks are left searching for somebody to lead them. This is a sad day for college football, as Kelly was an exciting coach who helped provide a high-flying offense that the game has never seen before.
At the same time, this is wonderful if you are a fan of another team in the Pac-12. Other squads in this conference no longer have to prepare the way they used to for one of the toughest teams in the country to contain. Keeping Oregon out of the end zone was difficult to say the least, but without Kelly on the sidelines, it might be easier to stop the Ducks.
Where do the Ducks sit now among Pac-12 teams heading into the 2013 season?
Here are the Pac-12 power rankings now that Kelly has taken his talents to the NFL.
