03:47 PM ET 01.03 | The Buffalo Bills have scheduled an interview with Oregon head coach Chip Kelly on Friday, according to a report by Adam Schefter of ESPN on Thursday afternoon. Kelly will be coaching in the 2013 Fiesta Bowl on Thursday night and will then be eligible to begin discussions with teams about potential opportunities. Kelly has developed into a highly-sought after candidate for NFL openings and has been isolated as several teams' primary choice, notably the Cleveland Browns and Philadelphia Eagles. In addition to Kelly, the Bills have also interviewed former Arizona Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt (engaging in a meeting with him on Tuesday). The organization also met with Cardinals' defensive coordinator Ray Horton.

Buffalo has got as much chance of getting Kelly as they do in winning half of their games next year.

I think this is a perfect fit. Underperforming NFL franchise meet your soon-to-be underperforming college coach.

This has disaster written all over it. For that reason alone, it is going to happen.

Chip Kelly belongs in Buffalo. Since their ain't no wife to move he could be really happy in Buffalo.
