It's pretty safe to say Jon Gruden won't be the next coach of the Tennessee Volunteers.

Now there are conflicting reports stating that Tennessee and athletic director John Currie never did, in fact, offer Chip Kelly.

While it may seem unusual to have an "agreement" while leaving the door open for Kelly to take a job elsewhere, the verbal handshake could have been a way for the two parties to put enough in writing to facilitate finalizing a contract. And, per the source noted in the article "also believed to have turned away interest from Nebraska". Florida is a Nike school.

It appears Chip Kelly is getting ready to accept a job coaching somewhere, but it is still anybody's guess as to where Kelly will land. Troy Aikman is doing everything he can to lure Kelly to his alma mater, but the Gators' top brass met with Kelly earlier this week and that reportedly went well.

UCLA fired coach Jim Mora this week, after Florida did the same to Jim McElwain last month, leaving two appealing jobs open. Per the USA Today report, a "potential sticking point" could be the Bruins' deal with Under Armour.

Kelly posted a 46-7 record at OR from 2009-12 and was widely regarded as one of the best offensive minds in the game during that span.

Tennessee fired Butch Jones on November 12.

- While Mike Riley doesn't seem long for Nebraska, there are indications that, despite his denial, Scott Frost could be the next man in charge of the Cornhuskers.

College football is better with Kelly's offensive mind and his against-the-grain approach to coaching.
