While UCLA announced Kelly’s hiring on Saturday, his introductory press conference will be held this afternoon.

On Saturday, UCLA announced that Chip Kelly will be UCLA’s 17th head football coach. This afternoon, at approximately 12:45 pm, Kelly will be formally introduced in a press conference on campus.

As I write this, I do not know whether or not any media outlet will be covering it live or not. Considering how big this news is, I think there is a good chance that you will be able to watch this news on TV somewhere. My best guess says to tune in to Pac-12 Networks Los Angeles as news like this from UCLA should take precedent over the Pac-12 Football in 60 replay of Friday’s football game or the replay of Southern Cal’s basketball game against Texas A&M.

If that doesn’t happen, or you don’t have Pac-12 Networks, I would try ESPNews as they covered the Men’s Basketball press conference after the three players returned from China.

And, for those of you without TV access, but with internet access, I would recommend trying the UCLA Live Stream on or maybe the Pac-12 Now app.

If none of those outlets work, I’m hoping someone can let everyone know in the comments who may be covering it live.

We will have full coverage of the press conference as soon as possible following its conclusion. In the meantime, this is your Chip Kelly Introductory Press Conference open thread.
