Chip Kelly expected to only consider UCLA, Florida

On Sunday, the Bruins were relieved of head coaching services by Jim Mora. Believe it or not, Schroeder was told that UCLA's association with Under Armour could be a potential issue for Kelly, who is close with Nike founder Phil Knight. According to ESPN, however, Kelly is expected to make his decision between Florida and UCLA over the next few days and is not considering any other options for his next job.

The Los Angeles Times reported Kelly met with a contingent of athletics officials from UCLA as the Bruins look to replace Jim Mora Jr., who was sacked on Sunday.

Kelly, 53, reportedly met with Florida officials on Sunday about their coaching vacancy and could be pursued by other schools. McElwain, who was the Mountain West Coach of the Year in 2014 with Colorado State prior to landing a bigger job, took the Gators to back-to-back SEC title games.

Qualcomm rejects $130bn Broadcom takeover bid
Broadcom has indicated it is willing to buy Qualcomm irrespective of whether it closes the NXP deal. A sign on the Qualcomm campus is seen in San Diego, California, U.S.

Kelly has familiarity with the West Coast, serving as an offensive coordinator/head coach with OR from 2007-12 and the head coach of the 49ers in 2016. He was sacked after he went 2-14, which gave him a 28-35 record across four seasons as an National Football League head coach, three of which were with the Philadelphia Eagles.

UCLA made a surprising move to fire Mora and pay his almost $12 million buyout, something that is quite uncharacteristic of the Athletic Department. He was 28-36 in four seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles and the 49ers. The recruiting relationships he established in the West Coast while at OR could be invaluable at UCLA, while not a big factor in the state of Florida.
