Father snores as his wife gets into her dressing gown

Picks up the letter that’s lying there

Standing alone at the top of the stairs

She breaks down and cries to her husband

Daddy our baby’s gone

Why would she treat us so thoughtlessly

How could she do this to me.

If memory serves me correctly, wasn’t Chip sanctioned after his final year at Oregon for “buying into” a bogus Texas recruiting service? I also remember that Chip left Eugene for the Philadelphia Eagles before the sanctions were imposed by the NCAA: My question: If Chip Kelly returns to collegiate coaching, is he required to serve the sanctions? Does the same hold true for Seattle Coach Pete Carroll when he left USC?
