UCLA has not made splashy hires with its football program under athletic director Dan Guerrero, selecting former Bruins Karl Dorrell and Rick Neuheisel before bringing in Mora before the 2012 season.

Per Mark Schlabach of ESPN, the head coach is poised to either take the UCLA Bruins or Florida Gators job in the coming days.

Update: According to ESPN's Mark Schlabach, former OR coach Chip Kelly is expected to decide between Florida and UCLA in the coming days, and is not entertaining other college openings OR offers. But Kelly's accomplishments in the Pac-12 make him attractive for a school that last won a conference title in 1998. In other words, that program does not now have a vacancy.

- Arkansas is expected to show Bret Bielema the door but is believed to be targeting Auburn's Gus Malzahn. In fact, Kelly reached out to gauge the Vols' interest instead of the other way around according to Wallace. Here are all the latest Florida coaching rumors you need to know about Kelly and more. He was 28-36 in four seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles and the 49ers. The Gators also have to (likely) compete with Nebraska for Frost's services, as the Huskers are likely to fire current head coach Mike Riley. The Bruins are believed to be attractive to Kelly given his West Coast ties, but have the drawback of being an Under Armour school (Kelly has a long-standing relationship with Nike founder Phil Knight dating back to his OR days).

But it's clear at this point that the market for Kelly right now is white hot and about to crank up to "scorching".
