Did Tennessee Actually Offer Chip Kelly or Not?

Update: According to ESPN's Mark Schlabach, former OR coach Chip Kelly is expected to decide between Florida and UCLA in the coming days, and is not entertaining other college openings OR offers.

On a related note, 247Sports (paid) reports that they're confident Florida will hire Chip Kelly as their next head coach.

However, Florida - which cut ties with Jim McElwain on October 29 - has been in hot pursuit of his services for the last week. The top target remains Chip Kelly and he appears on the verge of making a decision.

Kelly, however, is considering offers from both University of Florida and UCLA, according to USA Today's George Schroeder.

The L.A. Times reported Kelly met with a contingent of athletics officials from UCLA as the Bruins look to replace Jim Mora Jr. Would he favor a return to the West Coast where, even though he's a New Hampshire native, he found the most success he's had as a head coach?

Kelly went 46-7 in his four seasons at OR and took the team to a national championship game, so you can understand why he has so many offers from top programs. He was 28-35 in four seasons as an National Football League coach, including three with the Philadelphia Eagles. He was 28-36 in four seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles and the 49ers.
