Oregon Coach Chip Kelly Says He Never Took Buccaneers Job
Chip Kelly's brief flirtation with the Buccaneers job was just that: brief. Reports emerged on Sunday night that Kelly would take the Tampa Bay gig but while most of the world was sleeping, the situation was flopped and Kelly bailed. Unless he didn't; Kelly went on KUJZ in Oregon and said that he never accepted the Bucs gig and that he never flip-flopped. "The only decision I ever made was to not accept the job," Kelly said. "I never changed my mind; I never committed to the job and then flip-flopped. It was nothing more than, I'd like to hear what they had to say. They presented to me what their plan was for Tampa Bay, and it was extremely attractive," Kelly said. "But at the end of the day ... I got into coaching because of the relationships. And the relationships I have with the current coaches on our staff and the players was the underlying reason why I came back."
