Chip Kelly, an American football coach, has been serving as the head coach of the UCLA Bruins since 2018.

He rose to prominence as the head coach of the Oregon Ducks, leading the team to four consecutive BCS bowl games.

Under his leadership, he successfully coached the Ducks to several undefeated victories, earning notable honors. 

Perhaps his growing international popularity led him to coach in the National Football League (NFL).

There, Chip served as head coach for four seasons, three with the Eagles and one with the San Francisco 49ers. However, his inconsistent performance led to his termination from both teams. 

Later, the coach joined ESPN as a studio analyst for college football before returning to coach at the collegiate level.
