Florida To Go After Chip Kelly To Replace Will Muschamp?

There's no doubt around the country that Florida head coach Will Muschamp is on the hottest seat in the country, and many expect to be fired after the season ends - some even think it'll happen if the Gators lose to Georgia.

Because of that, there has been rampant speculation of who could replace him as the head man in Gainesville, and Campus Insiders' Jim Donnan thinks it could be current Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly.

"The name that I keep hearing around the country is Chip Kelly," he said. "He really is the kind of guy that can come in there and take over that program, run instant offense - you saw what he did at Oregon....he's got to remember what Nick Saban did. He left the Miami Dolphins and went to Alabama, and subsequently we've seen what he's done, plus he's making $7 million a year."

Florida would certainly be smart to go after Kelly if there is any interest. He's had success everywhere he's been, posting a 46-7 record in four season as the head coach at Oregon and has gone 15-7 in a season and a half with the Eagles.
