    Could Kelly end up in Detroit?

    With ESPN's Adam Schefter reporting that Chip Kelly, the current coach of the Oregon Ducks, is certainly going to be in a position to fend off NFL suitors once his team's season is over, it makes sense to take a look around the league to see what teams might be interested in his services.

    Such a tour around the bottom of the NFL standings starts with Romeo Crennel's tenuous position in Kansas City and continues on to Carolina (Ron Rivera) and Jacksonville (Mike Mularkey) all of which might be willing to cut ties with their current leaders for 2013. However, with a lot of offensive weapons already in place, could the Detroit Lions be the ultimate winner of Kelly's services?

    Jim Schwartz did lead his club to the post-season last year, but they lost their playoff contest and the Lions currently rank just 13th in total points scored despite leading the league in passing yards. Oregon is ranked first in the NCAA with 54.8 points per game, and in the end, that's the only statistic that truly counts.
    Imagine if we got Chip Kelly as a coach, I would be so happy and our offense would be so deadly.

    Offensive coordinator maybe but not head coach. Not ready to give up on Schwartz yet.

    The guy would never go from HC of a college team to a coordinator of a NFL team, unless they went through a firing. I'm just sick of our teams lack of discipline, lack of special teams, and terrible play calling (not so bad lately).

    I think he is talking about Brian Kelly of ND...and that is the one college coach I would really consider.

    Did a nice job of making a program out of Grand Valley State

    Made CMU a pretty good program

    Turned Cincinatti around

    Turned around a struggling ND team.

    IMO the man has been successful at every coaching level. Usually brings in a pretty good defense and a solid offense.

    lol Chip Kelly never coached CMU or ND... That's Brian Kelly, who's a complete D bag btw, didn't he leave Cincinnati like the night before their bowl game?

    Anyway Chip wouldn't accept anything less than a HC gig, I would be all for it if we finish like 5-11 and fall off the tracks. I doubt Mayhew would pull a move like this, seeing that Schwartz just got an extension in the off-season.

    Keep in mind that norv turner may be fired this year if SD doesn't make the playoffs. What do you guys think of him? Some guys are better coordinators than Head Coaches. (See wade Phillips).

    Doubt it'd ever happen. We're clearly riding out this season with our current coaches and the chain of a coaching carousel is always coordinators fired first, HC second so we have Schwartz for at least one more year, not so sure about our coordinators, though.

    I don't think Schwartz goes from being the second coming last season, to the unemployment line this year - regardless of how pathetic this season has looked.

    Of course, the road laid ahead of us the rest of this season with all these difficult teams could really expose us even further. Might be thinking differently in 3-4 weeks.


    Scrap Detroit!!
