It’s a given that the Chip Kelly period of UCLA football has not gone the same number of trusted it would. Through about a month and a half of the 2019 season, the Bruins are a general 4-14 since Kelly assumed control over the reins as lead trainer toward the beginning of last season – an imprint that is not even close to what fans imagined when the program originally enlisted the man who drove Oregon to a national title game appearance in 2010.
Also, in wake of UCLA’s 48-31 home misfortune to Oregon State on Saturday – a game that saw the Bruins experience a 21-0 first-quarter shortfall before the offense at last going – a decent number of fans in Los Angeles have at last observed enough.
In the event that there was any uncertainty about that, one UCLA fan let out his dissatisfaction in an inventive manner over the web. On Monday evening, an advertisement on Craigslist.com surfaced for a “Utilized Chip Kelly” at the expense of $9 million – a reference to the buyout for Kelly’s agreement with the Bruins.

Kelly, 55, has been in the business as a lead trainer since 2009, however, a previous couple of long stretches of his profession have been rough, without a doubt, and that goes past his spell with UCLA. After an effective spell at Oregon’s lead trainer from 2009-2012, Kelly made the hop from school to the NFL when he accepted the position as the Philadelphia Eagles’ lead trainer in 2013. His introduction season gave fans a lot of guarantees as he the Eagles went 10-6, yet Kelly just kept going three seasons in City of Brotherly Love. He was terminated after a 6-9 for Philadelphia in 2015.
Kelly found another home the accompanying season as the lead trainer of the San Francisco 49ers, however, it was a short remain. San Francisco went a wretched 2-14 under Kelly’s supervision and was terminated from his post after only one season. Kelly didn’t mentor in 2017, going through the year as an examiner for ESPN before eventually taking the activity at UCLA. In any case, the numbers represent themselves, as Kelly has a 6-28 record as a lead trainer going back to 2016.
Regardless of whether he keeps going through the finish of the 2019 season at UCLA, to be honest is impossible to say. In any case, it’s very evident that the tolerance among fans is rapidly falling out.
