Chip Kelly says he has been contacted by one college football program, but there's a catch


With openings at Maryland, North Texas, Illinois, South Carolina, and Southern Cal, and various fan bases and journalists trying to connect Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly with every conceivable opening, you just knew Kelly would field questions about the speculation at an upcoming press conference.

That presser came today as Philadelphia sports reporter Matt Lombardo points out in a few tweets where Kelly admits he has, in fact, been contacted by one school.

Only problem? Its fictional and the roster includes the likes of Sinbad, Rob Schneider, and Scott Bakula.

You might remember them as the Texas State Armadillos from Necessary Roughness, but for some reason Kelly remembers them as "North Texas State".

Well played coach Kelly, well played indeed.
