Chip Kelly isn't interested in talking about the NFL right now.
With his name being thrown around for some potential NFL jobs, Kelly was asked on SiriusXM College Sports Nation if he is looking at the NFL at all. Specifically, the Carolina Panthers.
Kelly wasn't biting.
"One of the things that bothers me with this profession, this speculation doesn't go on with anyone else's profession," he said. "If you work for Liberty Mutual or something, I don't think people sit around the watercooler saying who is getting this job and that job. It kind of becomes a national phenomenon. Everybody has a job right now.
"The Carolina Panthers have, in my opinion, an outstanding coach. I just think it's kind of the sad part of our profession, that people talk about people getting jobs that aren't even open. I've always just steered clear of that stuff. I've always approached it that the job I have is the job I love and coach my tail off here and get ready to play in the Fiesta Bowl."
So there you go._______________
