Oregon’s Kelly on offseason issues; why he doesn’t want players to join team for uniforms
Oregon coach Chip Kelly joined the show to talk about his season and the state of his program.
Dan asked Kelly the worst part of the offseason. “That you don’t get to play games,” Kelly said. “Whatever happens on a daily basis you have to take and make decisions and move forward.”
Kelly said he’s cooperated fully with the NCAA on off-field issues over the offseason.
Dan asked if Kelly thinks the NCAA views them as running a clean program. “Yes, I do,” Kelly said.
Kelly said that the off-field issues have not disrupted him or the program from preparing for the season.
Dan also asked Kelly about Oregon’s innovative uniforms. “I tell kids I don’t want them to pick our school because of the uniforms,” Kelly said. “That peaks their interest early. But there’s a lot more to this university.”
Dan asked Kelly what he thought of Cam Newton. “When I saw him in person, I was really impressed with him,” Kely said. “I thought he threw the ball very well watching him in warmups.”
