New obsession! Hello 2013!

And just so you know asif, I'm from Oregon, but not a Ducks nor Kelly fan. So please don't lump me in with the Kelly maniacs as you did the Tebow maniacs. K? K!

I'm just happy the Eagles won't end up with him. The names they've allegedly been interested in is somewhat frightening.

And Chip is making a huge mistake if he thinks Cleveland is a good place to start off his NFL career. He'll be back to coaching college football by 2015.

Just like early false reports of Reid to the Cardinals I wouldn't say it's quite a done deal yet for the Browns & Kelly. The Bills interviewed Kelly and Phillidelphia is set to interview Kelly today.

"A day after Chip Kelly finished his fourth season as head coach of the Oregon Ducks, the Buffalo Bills interviewed the innovative sideline boss for their head coaching vacancy. Buffalobills.com learned that the interview took place late on Friday in Arizona where Kelly's fourth-ranked Ducks posted a 35-17 victory the fifth-ranked Kansas State Wildcats in the Fiesta Bowl."

"There were numerous reports that the Cleveland Browns had met with Kelly earlier in the day, with the Philadelphia Eagles also reportedly scheduled to interview the Oregon head coach on Saturday."

The Bears should have interviewed him. We need a coach that can install a good offense.

I'm not sold his success in the college game will equal the same success at the pro level and think Emery is on the right track with his search. Spurrier, Saban, Petrino just to name a few college coaches who have tried and went back to the college ranks, it takes more than just bringing in a new scheme.

College coaches rarely succeed in NFL

Jim Harbaugh and Pete Carroll are the glaring exceptions.

But they (1) had NFL experience and (2) ran a pro style offense in college.

Agreed and Jimmy Johnson had success coming from the college ranks but the majority do not have success. Harbaugh didn't have any NFL coaching experience but had a long career as a QB and Carroll was in the NFL from 84-99 coached the Patriots from 97-99 went to the college ranks and back to the pro's.

I could see why Kelly wanted to leave Oregon..... having the obsessive compulsive controlling Phil Knight as your neighbor can be a trying experience. You never can tell when Phil will run through the neighborhood naked at 2:00 am and spray paint a giant swash on your garage door, or tie 50 pairs of last months model of tennis shoes together and throw them over your electrical and cable lines thus shorting out the power and TV for the neighborhood. Phil has also been known to kidnap all the neighbors pets and dye them the color of that weeks Oregon jerseys.

I agree. Kelly is running from potential sanctions. Unless he has the players to fit his scheme, he will fail. Miserably.
