Chip Kelly won't be wearing orange and blue next season, according to a report from Yahoo Sports.
Florida administrators met with Kelly on Sunday in New Hampshire and remained in contact with him earlier this week, but no deal was forthcoming between the two. Florida had kept its options open while engaged with Kelly and is now prepared to pursue those other candidates.
Forde goes on to report that with Kelly out of the picture, Florida is now focusing on UCF coach Scott Frost, who has led the Knights to a 10-0 start this season, and has his team in position for a New Year's Six berth.
As for Kelly, if Florida is no longer in the picture, you would have to think UCLA is the clear favorite for his services. CBSSports.com's Dennis Dodd reported earlier this week that this weekend.
