UCLA coach Chip Kelly has received a four-year contract extension.
The removal of defensive coordinator Jerry Azzinaro paved the way for Kelly’s extension.
I already said two weeks ago I would have fired Kelly on Jan. 15 when his buyout expired.
This now sets up Lincoln Riley vs. Chip Kelly for the next few years.
There are a lot of negatives regarding Kelly but I heard from a UCLA assistant that Azzinaro never did game-planning during the season. Whoever gets hired to replace him will be an upgrade. So there’s that.
