Chip Kelly is an NCAA Mens Football coach for the UCLA Bruins. Kelly was named UCLA’s 17th head football coach on Nov. 25, 2017. Kelly holds almost 30 seasons of coaching experience at both the professional and collegiate levels, most recently serving as head coach of the San Francisco 49ers (2016). He also served as the head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles (2013-15) following four seasons as head coach at the University of Oregon (2009-12) where he posted a record of 46-7.
Kelly began his head coaching career at the University of Oregon in 2009, leading the Ducks to a 10-3 record and a trip to the Rose Bowl. He finished his time at Oregon with a overall record of 46-7 as head coach (2009-12), including a 33-3 mark in conference play.
Kelly’s lone season in San Francisco saw the 49ers improve from the league’s 21st-ranked rushing attack in 2015 (1,544 yards) to the 4th-best ground game in 2016 (2,019 yards). Running back Carlos Hyde was the biggest beneficiary of the improvement, gaining 988 yards in just 13 contests (76.0 yards per game).

Sixteen Pro Bowlers were selected from his teams, including eight in 2014.
