Two people with knowledge of the decision confirmed Sunday night that Kelly is passing up a chance to coach in the NFL to remain with the Ducks.
Living in the moment served Kansas State well this season. The seventh-ranked Wildcats rose to No. 1 in the BCS standings, won the Big 12 title and reached the Fiesta Bowl.
As Oregon coach Chip Kelly was about to receive the massive Fiesta Bowl trophy, Ducks fans inside University of Phoenix Stadium started a chant of “We want Chip!”
Kansas State and Oregon were in perfect position at the start of Nov. 17, Nos. 1 and 2 in the BCS standings, seemingly on a crash course toward the national championship game.
The loss by Kansas State over the weekend helped upend the national championship picture. It also set up potential chaos in the Big 12.
BCS conference commissioners have identified candidate cities to host the first championship game in college football’s new postseason system, and the four current BCS bowls will be among the choices.
The second two-time winner of the Biletnikoff Award as the nation’s top receiver, Blackmon is expected to play his final game for the Cowboys against Stanford in the Fiesta Bowl Monday night.
Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy says the Cowboys are past the disappointment of not being able to play for the BCS national championship.
By landing Oklahoma State and Stanford, two dynamic teams that just happen to be Nos. 3 and 4 in the BCS standings, the Fiesta Bowl got the golden game it needed.
While the BCS title game in New Orleans remains scheduled for Jan. 9. a Monday night, it could be moved either up to Jan. 7 or back to Jan. 10.
The Fiesta Bowl will be allowed to remain part of the Bowl Championship Series, though it must pay a $1 million fine for apparent illegal campaign contributions and inappropriate spending.
The BCS could soon boot the Fiesta Bowl out of the system college football used to crown a champion, leaving other bowls, like the Cotton Bowl, foaming for a chance to hold the national title game.
