Chip Kelly isn’t ready to return to the college ranks, as the former San Francisco 49ers, Philadelphia Eagles and Oregon coach has “no interest” in Alabama’s offensive coordinator job, according to a report from Bleacher Report.
Kelly is still holding out for an NFL job as a head coach or coordinator, per Bleacher Report.
The Crimson Tide lost offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian to the Atlanta Falcons. Sarkisian was elevated to the job at Alabama during the week of the College Football Playoff Championship against Clemson after Lane Kiffin’s abrupt departure.
Sarkisian joined the Falcons in the same capacity Tuesday after Atlanta offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan left to become the new coach of the 49ers.
Kelly was fired by the 49ers on Jan. 1 after going 2-14 in his only season with the team. He was hired by San Francisco one month after he was fired by the Eagles less than three seasons into his tenure as head coach in December 2015.
Kelly guided the Ducks to a 46-7 mark in his four seasons at Oregon, including an appearance in the 2011 BCS National Championship Game.
