Chip Kelly’s business plan is sound: Get fired, collect all the money

Chip Kelly’s business plan is sound: Get fired, collect all the money – The Washington Post

“I bring all this up because Chip Kelly just got fired for the second time in what basically amounts to one calendar year, this time by the 49ers. And so we have this odd situation: Kelly is going to be getting paid by two NFL teams not to coach, and if he gets hired again he’ll be getting paid by three.

John Breech of CBS Sports summarizes it all nicely: Kelly still had two years worth $6.5 million each left on his contract when the Eagles fired him after the 2015 season, but then the 49ers’ hired him on a four-year deal with $6 million annually. And so this season, because of the offset language that’s present in just about every NFL coaching contract, Kelly was paid $6 million by the Niners and $500,000 by the Eagles.”
