NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport is reporting that Washington Redskins QB coach Kevin O’Connell has turned down an offer to become Chip Kelly’s offensive coordinator for the UCLA Bruins. Rapoport tweeted out the news this morning.
Offensive coordinator is the biggest open position still remaining on Chip Kelly’s staff.
Here’s a look at where the staff stands:
2018 UCLA Football Staff
|Running Backs||DeShaun Foster|
|Offensive Line||Hank Fraley|
|Tight Ends||Angus McClure|
|Wide Receivers||Jimmie Dougherty|
|Defensive Coordinator||Jerry Azzinaro|
|Defensive Line||Vince Oghobasse|
|Defensive Backs||Paul Rhoads|
|Special Teams Coordinator||Roy Manning|
|Strength and Conditioning||Frank Wintrich|
|Strength Assistant||Vincent Croce|
|Director of Player Personnel||Geoff Martzen|
|Offensive Analyst||Thad Lewis|
|Offensive Graduate Assistant||Jerry Neuheisel|
As much as UCLA fans would be delighted, it probably won’t be Jedd Fisch. If Fisch was in line for the job, he would already have been offered the opportunity to stay. So, he’s out.
So, who do you think will be Kelly’s next choice? Leave a comment below.
