Our Pacific Northwest

Our Pacific Northwest

After Pondering the NFL, Kelly Decides to Remain on the Pond

The Cleveland Browns, Buffalo Bills, Philadelphia Eagles, and other GMs around the NFL tried to entice college football’s top head-coaching prize, but despite their courtship, Oregon University head football coach Chip Kelley told the Oregon Press yesterday he will indeed lead the quack-attack for another season. The news is greatly rejoiced not only among the Duck faithful, who have seen their squad partake in four straight BCS games, but college football gets to keep one its most brilliant and enduring coaches for at least another season. According to the Register-Guard, Kelley already claims the highest winning percentage in modern OU football history, amassing 46 victories in the last four seasons with only seven losses. With the return of Kelly, as well as the return of quarterback Marcus Marriota, running back DeAnthony Thomas, tight end Colt Lyerla, and other notable players, the Ducks will likely start their 2013 campaign where they finished this season, ranked in the top five of the AP poll. The Pacific Northwest will be excited to watch the Duck’s run the Pac-12 gauntlet in order to claim a highly elusive national championship birth once again.
