Chip Kelly waiting to name UCLA starting QB for Week 3
UCLA coach Chip Kelly is waiting to name a starting quarterback going forward.
Kelly said Monday that he’s waiting to see who practices best ahead of the Bruins’ game against Fresno State, with Dorian Thompson-Robinson and Wilton Speight in contention.
Chip Kelly said he needs to see who practices this week before naming a starting quarterback against Fresno State. When I asked him if there was any temptation to to just grow with Dorian Thompson-Robinson going forward, he said, "Nope. Our temptation is to beat Fresno."

Speight was named the starter prior to the season, but was knocked out of the season opener with a back injury and hasn’t played since. He’s apparently healthy enough to merit consideration to start, but Thompson-Robinson hasn’t been awful, throwing for 254 yards and a touchdown in a loss at Oklahoma. Kelly wants to assess both before deciding who will face Fresno State in what he hopes will be his first win as Bruins coach.
