It'll be interesting to see how many jobs he does interview for - but I suspect the winner will be the team willing to give him the most say over roster and player personnel.

I can see it now...

Brandon Weeden and Trent Richardson running zone reads out of the shotgun, with Josh Gordon screaming for ball...

Sounds fun.

Just because Kelly has had incredible success in college, doesn't mean he can carry it over to the NFL.

Coaches that had success at the college ranks, but looked weak when they moved to the NFL, Saban, Spurrier, and Petrino, to name a few.

After having nothing but misery since they've come back in the League, I would think the Browns would go with a safe pick, someone like Lovie Smith, Andy Reid, or Bill Cower.

If not them, a top Defensive Coordinator like, Perry Fewell of the Giants, or Mike Zimmer of the Bengals, or a top Offensive Coordinator like, Bruce Arians of the Colts, or Darrell Bevell of the Seahawks.

Recently Carroll, Jim Harbaugh, Greg Schiano(sp?) with the first two in the playoffs I think college coaches are hot commodities ATM

LOL. THat's definitely the worse possible situation for Chip Kelly for that reason

Plus that division with the Steelers, Ravens, and Bengals, not exactly friendly for installing that offense

I think Philly would be the best place for Kelly. Vick could be pretty decent with his scheme, and they have a lot of those quick and fast receivers that the spread seems to have preference for. Plus, McCoy would be an ideal RB for his offense.

Buffalo has also set up an interview with Chip Kelly.

Either Philly or Buffalo. THey also have the speedster in CJ Spiller and a solid Oline.

PLus an easier division than the NFC East

Steelers are getting old and the Ravens just limped into the playoffs. Bengals are scary but we beat them pretty easily in our 2nd game with Haden.

HOLD UP!

Bevell had one great year as a Coordinator, that being this past year. Every other year he's been subpar to average. 2009 was a fluke. He had Brett Favre as his QB who had a great season that year, and when he came back for 2010, he looked washed up.

They can hire Bevell, but they will be severely disappointed.

Both are good organizations with stable management and ownership. Every team eventually has a down year, i think they'll both bounce back soon.

Another coaching career for the Ravens to put a sad face on.

Trent was a gimme even they couldn't screw that up. He is going to be a problem for the AFC North.But what were they thinking picking Brandon Weeden with a first rounder ? Browns got talent, just been hampered by horrible front offices.

If I'm Chip, and I'm willing to take a gamble on the NFL and leave the security of Oregon behind, it would most certainly not be for the Cleveland Browns Laughing
