Oregon coach Chip Kelly, whose team beat Kansas State in Thursday's Fiesta Bowl, looks like he's headed for the NFL.
He had interviews lined up with the NFL teams - the Buffalo Bills, Cleveland Browns and Philadelphia Eagles - and he is close to reaching agreement on a deal to become the Browns' head coach, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported.
Kelly, who is lauded for his innovative offensive schemes, was considered the top choice of Browns owner Jimmy Haslam, who apparently is willing to spend a lot to land Kelly.
Kelly hasn't been hired yet, and there is always a chance the deal could fall through. But as of midday Friday, it appeared Kelly was headed to the Browns.
