According to Sports Illustrated, Oregon's Chip Kelly will be looking for "near complete control when it comes to personnel decision-making power" if he's to make the jump to the NFL.SI's Don Banks believes that could make Kelly a no-go for the Eagles, who are expected to make a big push for the Ducks' innovative offensive mind. According to Banks, Kelly could also be a possibility for the Panthers. With only an interim GM in place in Carolina, Kelly could likely get the "complete control" he's seeking if coach Ron Rivera is dismissed. Kelly's addition would be an exciting one for Cam Newton.

Nope, a guy with no NFL past at all wants almost complete control? Hell no.

He will stay at Oregon if that is true,he doesn't have that type of leverage to demand control.

I'm pretty sure this was said about Jim Harbaugh when he was doing interviews before the San Fran job.

He wants to be GM and coach. We're looking for a GM and possibly a head coach. We aren't a match for what he's looking for.

JR is not going to give full control to a guy who has NO NFL experience at all.

Pete Caroll does, but we are talking about JR giving Chip this much control. It's not going to happen. Chip might as well sign his contract to the Eagles now because they are probably the only team that will give him that much control.

Caroll had a NFL background before he became coach of Seattle.
