Earlier, according to one report, Kelly had "signed an agreement with Florida" that included a window for backing out of the deal, leaving UCLA as an option.

FOX Sports college football reporter Bruce Feldman said on Saturday that Kelly was impressed with Florida and "really liked the UF brass". This move is official following UCLA's announcement on Saturday morning.

"I am thrilled to welcome Chip Kelly to Westwood", Bruins Athletics Director Dan Guerrero said.

Most recently, Kelly has been serving as an analyst for ESPN. "His success speaks for itself, but more than that, I firmly believe that his passion for the game and his innovative approach to coaching student-athletes make him the flawless fit for our program".

Oil market could tip out of balance on rising non-Opec production
Scientists just this week said that emissions of the heat-trapping gas rose this year after three years of not growing. This latest move comes as investors expect figures to show United States oil production has risen.

The announcement comes the day after UCLA (6-6, 4-6 Pac-12) won its sixth game of the season against California (5-7, 2-7) with Jedd Fisch as interim head coach and made itself bowl-eligible for the first time in two seasons.

Football Scoop and Yahoo reported the news on Friday that Kelly was no longer considering Florida and he was expected to pick UCLA and replace Jim Mora who was sacked last Sunday, one day after losing again to rival USC.

His stint in San Francisco lasted just one season before he was sacked. He was sacked in 2015 and subsequently coached one season with the San Francisco 49ers before being let go after a 2-14 record.
