It's called negotiating.

Chip chose the best job (staying at Oregon)

He's smart

Funny. Heard from Schefter yesterday he was "guaranteed" to leave for the NFL.

It looks like Schefter took a blind swing on this one and missed.

That's a surprise. I thought Chip was close to signing with the Browns?

Hopefully he's willing to make a 3 to 5 year commitment. If we're just going to have to go thru this again next year i'd actually prefer that he leave now.

I'll tell you one thing though, his players love him as much as i've ever seen players love a coach. I know they're going to be an extremely happy group.

Negotiating my foot.

He's looked so indecisive during this process. The guy clearly has ambitions to coach in the NFL, so I don't get his approach. What is he waiting for? An even bigger contract? I mean, he's basically done in the NFL now. He led Tampa Bay down the garden path last year. Now it's Cleveland who get the lawyers in to finalise the contract (while he's dining with Philly for about eight hours). As Peter King joked earlier, everyone will run away screaming next time Chip Kelly decides he fancis the NFL.

Just either stay at Oregon and get on with it, or move to the NFL. I don't expect Oregon fans to agree with me on this, but the guy just looks like he can't make a decision on what he truly wants. Is it the same again next year? Kelly kind of thinking he wants to go to the NFL, then backing out after another foolish team has wasted a weekend with the lawyers?

I think he's waiting for an offer that's good enough to make him want to leave Oregon. Pete Carroll did the same thing while he was at USC. He didn't leave until he got the control he wanted and Paul Allen was the one that gave it to him.

Chip probably wants something similar and he won't settle for less. He's already in a great position making a lot of money. He really has no rush to make the jump to the NFL seeing that he'd be a pretty young head coach (and only 4 years of head coaching experience).

As a coach coming from college he's only going to get one chance. If one day he finally takes that chance, I'm sure he wants it to be the right situation for him.

Would love to see Kelly bring that Offense into the NFL. But I agree he wants a Pete Carroll "final say" contract.

Then again why don't these loser teams give it to him?

I guess I lied about Chip Kelly being a young coach. He's 49.

Crazy. He looks closer to 39.

When did Pete Carroll flirt with the NFL? He was never connected with NFL jobs until Paul Allen courted him out of the blue, "coincidentally" when USC was facing NCAA sanctions.

Every year there was a story of Pete listening to NFL teams make offers with him ultimately turning them down because he wouldn't get the control he wanted. The Chargers were one team to do so.

I don't remember him doing anything like what Chip Kelly has been doing. Maybe my memory is bad.

I think once he starts thinking about what he's going to inherit, staying at the place he's already built starts to look a lot more appealing.

I said in another thread that I think he wants more control than an NFL team might want to concede to an unproven college coach (Carroll wasn't really unproven), but I also think Kelly doesn't think he can have much fun at the next level, either.

I do think this will scare NFL teams off for a couple years for sure.

Pete Carroll DID NOT agree to join two NFL teams, have an eight hour meeting with another (while Cleveland's lawyer's twiddled their thumbs) and then change his mind just like that to go back to USC.

Chip Kelly has dangled himself out there and seemingly shown serious interest in going to the NFL. And for whatever reason, when it's actually been time to make the commitment, he's suddenly changed his mind.

And if he really is just waiting for the right move... yeah - good luck with that. I very much doubt any other teams will be picking up the phone any time soon after this.

When did he agree to sign on with the Browns? All I saw was that he was close and that they were going to have a second meeting. Does a second meeting mean that he agreed?

He obviously didn't hear enough to make him want to pack up and leave a great coaching position at Oregon.

If one day he decides he's had enough of the college game and wants to make the jump, there will be teams lining up to talk to him. He's that respected. Tony Dungy raves about Chip Kelly's style.

I really hope you're right. But I doubt it lasts more than a couple years. I heard Nick Saban's name thrown around a little this year, Chip's NFL reputation is nowhere near as tattered as Saban's.

Seahawks win and Chip stays. I thought Christmas was in December?

Yeah, I'll point out I don't really think he burned any bridges to the NFL.

That said, it wouldn't bother me in the least if he did. Stay at Oregon forever, Chip.

The thing about a cock tease, the more she teases you, the more you want to see her naked. It's just how things work.*

I'd bet you that his penchant for leaving teams at the altar won't effect him one bit next offseason. He'll still be getting multiple offers. At worst they lose a few days in the hiring process, which really isn't a big deal. At best they land the hottest NFL coaching prospect available.

*Enjoy the naked Chip Kelly mental images that I'm sure this post gave you.

It really isn't good fault the media turned this into a circus. He said it would be silly not to listen to teams so he listened. Nothing sounded better then the gig he had so he went home. Nothing to see here, despite what the media wants to make it

When you get the lawyers in for the second meeting, it's to go over the contract. You don't sift through a contract until you've at least verbally committed to the gig.

No he didn't. He was scheduled to meet them for a second time. And in that second meeting, they were scheduled to draw up the contract. Which is why the lawyers were called in. And while they were waiting, he was having a marathon session with the Eagles instead.

Hey - you guys kept your coach. I'm pleased for you. I'm not trying to piss on your chips here. But the guy accepted the gig in Tampa Bay and then changed his mind. He was very close to signing a contract with the Browns, then changed his mind. He spent all weekend with Philly, and then changed his mind about the NFL completely. This is not how Pete Carroll approached things at USC. Personally, I think Kelly just needs to shit or get off the toilet. Go to the NFL or sign a 10-year deal or something at Oregon. End the madness already.

As a Ducks fan, I wholeheartedly agree. It's irritating to have the specter over us every year, and considering the kinds of kids Kelly is recruiting, they deserve better, too. They deserve stability.

I too agree with this. It is very frustrating worrying every year if he is going to stay or not. He needs to make up his mind and quit holding Oregon hostage.

Been dealing with the same situation here in Idaho with Boise State and Peterson , only he's never actually visited any teams , he says he's got it to good to ever leave , but someday he'll have to try the pros I'm sure .
