If this is the end of the journey for Chip Kelly in the college ranks, he went out with a victory.
The Ducks were able to beat Kansas State in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl. Kelly’s team won the game, 35-17.
His Athletic Director, Rob Mullens, has granted NFL teams’ permission to talk to Kelly. He is expected to interview with at least three NFL teams today in Arizona.
The Cleveland Browns are willing to offer Kelly a deal he can’t refuse, according to reports. He is expected to interview with the Browns, the Buffalo Bills, and the Philadelphia Eagles on Friday.
The Browns are expected to move aggressively to bring Kelly on board. Browns new CEO Joe Banner knows that Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie is hot on Kelly’s heels if the Browns can’t seal the deal.
Kelly reportedly wanted to meet with the Eagles and the Bills today after meeting with the Browns for peak leverage in negotiating a deal with the Browns.
Kelly would finish his college coaching career with a 46-7 record if this is the end. There are reports that he has talked to NFL assistant coaches that he may bring onto his coaching staff in an event that he does leave Oregon.
Mark Helfrich, the Ducks offensive coordinator, is expected to be named the Ducks head coach should Kelly leave.
