the season has truly begun now
So much for staying at Oregon
Chip Kelly is the new coach of the Philadelphia Eagles, according to league sources. No announcement yet.— Chris Mortensen (@mortreport) January 16, 2013
The ESPN article on Kelly's departure from Cincinnati specifically mentions that Jeff Quinn, his offensive coordinator, will coach Cincy in the Sugar Bowl. It also mentions that Quinn has been with Kelly for 22 years, from GVSU to CMU to Cincy. My question is, how big an impact has Quinn had on Kelly's success as an offensive innovator? Also, will Quinn stay at Cincy if he's going to coach them in the SB? He wasn't listed along with other candidates for the head coaching job at Cincy....
Basically, I'm just curious to hear what people think the effects of either action by Quinn will be.
If Kelly goes to ND as expected, I wonder if he will be able to pull more recruits from OSU. Even though he won't be in Ohio anymore, ND has higher visibility than Cinci and Kelly's more recent connections are to high schools in Ohio and its southern neighbors. I know he was also in the state of Michigan (at CMU) at some point. But his connections in MI probably won't be as active now.
