Chip Kelly has one year remaining on his contract at UCLA, and the two sides have yet to agree on an extension. The longer that goes on, the more questions it will raise about his future with the Bruins.
Kelly and UCLA have been in negotiations for several weeks, but no deal has been reached. One key factor is also looming in contract talks: on Jan. 16, Kelly’s $9 million buyout will drop to zero. In other words, if no contract extension is agreed upon by then, UCLA could fire Kelly at no cost.
