Browns owner Jimmy Haslam and President Joe Banner are interviewing Oregon head coach Chip Kelly today in Arizona. It's happening there because Oregon played in last night's Fiesta Bowl, beating Kansas State.
Kelly is believed to be the Browns top choice to replace Pat Shurmur who was fired on Friday. Reports indicate they've been talking with Kelly's agent, David Dunn, all week leading up to the Fiesta Bowl. Kelly did not want to be distracted from game preparation with any kind of NFL talk. Kelly has indicated he'd like to move quickly though this process so he can figure out where he is going to be. Cleveland, Buffalo and Philadelphia all want to interview him and Oregon would like to keep him. Last year Kelly turned down an offer from Tampa Bay to stay with the Ducks.
