It appears the Chip Kelly girlfriend mystery is over. It seems his girlfriend is Jill Cohen, a 30-something University of Oregon director of donor relations & events. She’s held the athletic department job since 2008, according to her Linkedin account. Cohen went to school at Oregon from 1999-2004. Chip Kelly, 51, became the Oregon offensive coordinator in 2007.
We also know that Cohen had a stint in the Cleveland Cavaliers front office before going home to her native Oregon for the UO job.
The bloggers at Broken Bell Philly were all over this Cohen-Kelly story in 2014, but never had visual evidence the two were dating. Then the two were spotted by a MLB camera at Tuesday’s Angels Spring Training game. Now the dots start to connect.
According to Broken Bell, they received word that Cohen-Kelly might’ve had some troubles once Chipper took the Eagles job. It now looks like things might be back on for the mad genius, albeit of the long distance variety.
