Chip Kelly set to speak with NFL teams

Jonathan Ferrey

The Ducks head coach is reportedly going to begin interviewing with several teams following Oregon's last game of the season on Thursday.

University of Oregon head coach Chip Kelly could be coaching his last game with the Ducks on Thursday when they take on the Kansas State in the Fiesta Bowl.

According to USA Today, Kelly will interview with the Philadelphia Eagles, Buffalo Bills and Cleveland Browns, all of which have coaching vacancies after firing their respective coaches at the end of the NFL regular season. The meetings will likely take place in Phoenix, where Oregon will play in their bowl game.

The Bills' staff is currently still in Phoenix after interviewing former Arizona Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt, and they appear poised to speak with Kelly when he becomes available following Thursday's game.

Kelly has been widely rumored to have his sights set on the NFL ever since he entertained the idea of joining the Tampa Bay Buccaneers staff following last season. Kelly's record with Oregon is an impressive 45-7, and his uptempo, spread offense is beginning to catch on in the NFL.
