Per UCLA Athletics:

Former Oregon, Eagles, and Niners coach brings to UCLA his brand of uptempo spread offense as well as smoothies!

This can impact Cal staffing since both DL Coach Azzinaro and OL Coach Greatwood have worked with Chip Kelly, Azzinaro served as his DL coach at Oregon and in the NFL while Greatwood worked with him and his successor Helfrich at Oregon.

Details for Kelly’s contract:

To compare, Cal gave Coach Wilcox a 5 year $9.58 million deal. UCLA will average $4.66 million a year for their new HC, which is $2.76 million more than Cal does with Wilcox.
