Clay Travis names 2 SEC teams among 3 ‘favorites’ to land Chip Kelly

Chip Kelly could end up in the SEC. At least that’s what Clay Travis thinks.

Writing for Outkick The Coverage, the analyst named Texas A&M and Tennessee as possibilities for the former Oregon coach after this season. He also labeled UCLA as a possible landing spot for Kelly, who flamed out in the NFL after stops with the Philadelphia Eagles and San Francisco 49ers.

Check out part of Travis’ column:

I’ll update the Chip Kelly sweepstakes as soon as Texas A&M, Tennessee and UCLA play, but right now UCLA-Texas A&M and Tennessee-Georgia Tech are massive for Kevin Sumlin, Jim Mora, Butch Jones and Chip Kelly. … I think these three schools are the favorites to land Chip Kelly and we’ll know an awful lot more about the early lay of the land at all three places based on what happens tonight and Monday night.

Interestingly, Texas A&M plays UCLA on Sunday night. Then Tennessee opens against Georgia Tech on Monday in Atlanta.

It’s no surprise that Sumlin, who’s 44-21 with the Aggies, must produce fast after all the hot-seat talk in the offseason. In addition, some people have placed the heat on Jones, who’s 30-21 with the Vols.

Kelly’s name figures to be floated a bunch in the coming months. Be prepared to see it often as seats heat up, whether you like it or not.
