Rumors of Kelly’s possible departure are increasing.

Last night, I was perusing through my Twitter timeline and came across a tweet about an article from, which suggested that Chip Kelly might be looking to leave UCLA. Now, the author was no one I had ever heard of before. So, I dismissed it as an unsubstantiated rumor.

But, now, has an article about Kelly’s possible departure as well. FootballScoop is a site I trust. So, when Scott Roussel writes:

Source tells FootballScoop there is concern within the building about the direction of the UCLA program and who will be leading it into the future.

Following multiple meetings this week between Chip Kelly and UCLA administrators, source tells FootballScoop the potential exists for a more significant change than anyone anticipated.

It makes me think that the end of the Chip Kelly era with the UCLA Bruins may be closer than any of us could have imagined.

This is a developing story and we will update it as needed.

Go Bruins!
