In a very short amount of time, Oregon Ducks head football coach Chip Kelly has emerged as one of the most successful coaches in all of college football. Since taking over for longtime coach Mike Bellotti, Kelly has put together a 34-6 record, while appearing in three consecutive BCS Bowl games.

Last season, Kelly and his Oregon program lost a heartbreaking battle to Auburn in the BCS National Championship Game. Undeterred by the 22-19 defeat, the school bounced back with a vengeance. Their two-loss season culminated with a 45-38 victory over Wisconsin in the 2012 Rose Bowl.

The 6-5, 215 lbs. senior put together a solid regular season, totaling 48 catches and 10 touchdowns.
