Westwood, CA – The new era in UCLA Football has begun and at very least the Bruins have a new witty smooth talker. Chip Kelly the new UCLA Bruins football coach was greeted Monday afternoon by Booster, Staff, Media, and mascot Joe Bruin with cheerleaders on both sides of the stage.
Down in the Pavilion Club that was set up for this joyous occasion to officially welcome Kelly.
UCLA Director of Athletics Dan Guerrero kicked off the press conference with his opening remarks and then introduced to the room Chip Kelly.
Kelly opening statement was packed with details and quotes from the great John Wooden.
“We going to be quick, but note hurry,” said Kelly in response to few questions and statements today.
Bruins fans will look to hang on one line he said to the key to his success soon.
“I believe football is about three things: I believe it’s about relationships, friendships and championships,” Kelly said.
Kelly has already meet with the team early Monday morning, he gained few new friends after his press conference……So next up CHAMPIONSHIPS….
Guerrero named former NFL and college head coach Chip Kelly as the Bruins’ 17th head football coach. Kelly agreed to a five-year contract worth $23.3M with a $9M reciprocal buyout.
Kelly will began to recruit right away but will allow Jedd Fisch to coach the Bowl game before taking on team first hand.
