UCLA Hires Chip Kelly As Head Football Coach

The former OR and National Football League head coach is finalizing an agreement to become the next coach at UCLA, Yahoo Sports' Pete Thamel tweeted on Saturday, with a deal expected to be reached "by the end of the weekend". The veteran head coach will receive a deal worth $23.3 million that includes a $9 million reciprocal buyout. His high-powered and high-paced offense helped lead the Ducks to a 46-7 record and multiple bowls in 4 years. Mora took the Bruins to the Pac-12 championship game in 2012 and Bowl games in his first four seasons, but they've struggled over the last three campaigns, going 18-19 since 2015.
