Oregon coaches Chip Kelly and Scott Frost run with the bulls

Gearing up for the season

Oregon Ducks head football coach Chip Kelly has been known to be a little unconventional. From the style of offense he runs to his relationship with the media, Kelly has always been one of the more interesting coaches to cover in college football.

And yet, a post by assistant coach Scott Frost on his Twitter account may have set the bar for which all “Chipisms” must compare to.

Check it out:


Yup, University of Oregon head football coach Chip Kelly and his assistant Scott Frost ran with the bulls in Spain.

Taking time out of their busy schedules to enjoy life a little before football really kicks into gear, Kelly and Frost reportedly took a “short” 8 day trip to Europe.

And what better way to relax than running with a set of 2,000 – 3,000 bulls charging at your heals?

Running with the Bulls in Pamplona

For Kelly and Frost, there is no better way to relax. With yet another Pac-12 season that is sure to test Oregon to the fullest (with USC back in the mix and revitalized teams such as Washington and Cal), running with the bulls must seem like a walk in the park for these two coaches.

Both Oregon coaches took part in this popular event at the festival of San Fermin, an annually held celebration in the city of Pamplona (Navarre, Spain) from the 6th of July to midnight on the 14th of July. The festival draws around 1,000,000 people, making it one of the most popular celebration in Spain.

Luckily enough for Oregon fans, Kelly and Frost both made it out alive. The two are now stateside preparing for what is sure to be yet another stellar season for the Oregon Ducks.

The Ducks, who are one of the favorites to contend for the Pac-12 Title, come into the season ranked number four in most preseason polls.

Though there are questions surrounding their starting quarterback (whether it be Bryan Bennett or Marcus Mariota), Oregon has the talent in place to win every game this season.

Returning stars such as DeAnthony Thomas, Kenjon Barner Michael Clay, and Dion Jordan should help Oregon bring their own version of the “running of the bulls” to a football field this coming fall.

One has to ask, however, wouldn’t Frost and Kelly have been able to run just a little faster if Nike threw a little Oregon flare into those outfits?
