Chip Kelly wants Redskins QB coach Kevin O’Connell for UCLA...

NFL insider Ian Rapoport reported on Sunday that UCLA head coach Chip Kelly wants to hire Washington Redskins QB coach Kevin O’Connell as his new offensive coordinator.

The #Redskins may lose their QB coach. Sources say Kevin O’Connell is the top target for #UCLA’s offensive coordinator job under Chip Kelly. It won’t happen until the season ends, but a difficult position to turn down.

— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) December 24, 2017

O’Connell is in his first season as the Redskins’ QB coach. He was in the NFL from 2008-2012 and was a former 3rd round pick of the New England Patriots. He first came into the NFL as a QB coach for the Cleveland Browns in 2015.

He joined Kelly’s staff with the San Francisco 49ers during Kelly’s only season in the Bay Area. He must have left an impression on the former Oregon head coach.

As Rapoport mentions, this would be a huge job opportunity for O’Connell and it seems likely that if Kelly officially offers the job to O’Connell, the Redskins QB coach would be on his way to Westwood. Nothing is expected to be finalized until after the new year.
