Facing NCAA hammer at Oregon, Kelly remarkably spurns NFL cash
January 8, 2013Richmond High School
This was shocking, and not in the way that big-time college football coaches so often do things that are shocking. This was shocking, what Oregon's Chip Kelly did when he said no to the NFL, because it was so uplifting. Impressive. Unselfish.
Yes, unselfish. Money isn't the only way to measure greed or ambition or self-interest. And Kelly is taking a big hit -- or at least, he's risking a big hit -- to remain at Oregon.
