Now that the Fiesta Bowl is history, the big question is will coach Chip Kelly stay in Oregon or end up roaming the Cleveland Browns sidelines next fall? The Browns and Kelly are expected to meet today to discuss an offer.
According to ESPN, a total of three teams are expected to interview the Oregon coach, who said after Thursday night's Fiesta Bowl win over Kansas State that he hopes to have the process "wrapped up quickly."
Those words have to make you think that Kelly is ready to make the jump to the NFL, but will it be with the Browns?
Browns owner Jimmy Haslam has made it clear that he is interested in Kelly, but if the deal doesn't happen, will he pursue Nick Saban or Jon Gruden?
According to a Jan. 4 report form ESPN Cleveland, Kelly and Saban are on the top guys on Haslam's radar, but what about Ohio native Jon Gruden? Gruden could be an x-factor when all is said and done with this year's coaching carousel.
According to Cantonrep.com, the Browns owner and Gruden have a lot in common. Haslam is an ally of the Tennessee Volunteers football program, while Gruden is a former Tennessee graduate assistant.
Putting those Tennessee connections together, along with Gruden being a native Ohioan…you never know!
