Browns now saying Chip Kelly and Syracuse coach Doug Marrone are "neck and neck" for their head coaching spot (from Ian Rapoport).

Sounds like they think they're losing to the Eagles.

Rapoport tweeted that as of 3 minutes ago, Kelly and the Eagles are still "having lunch".

(maybe they want to get him up to the same weight as Andy Reid before he takes the sideline)

Sounds like Browns are moving on from Chip Kelly. Seems like it'll either be the Eagles or back to Oregon for Kelly.

Oregon booster Phil Knight is making a big push to keep Kelly there. Looking more like Kelly will stay at Oregon for another year.

Guessing he's not liking the oppurtunity giving out to him. My guess, he was hoping to get an interview and possibility to coach here in Carolina. Just my guess. If Rivera doesn't perform next season, Chip's name will again be a huge next year and especially a name to Carolina.

I think it was Carolina or back to Oregon from the jump. Once we retained Ron I figured Chip would go back to Oregon... And would be shocked if he doesn't go back

Being reported that the Browns are "rebooting" their coaching search (per Chris Mortensen) with Chip Kelly not expected to be in the mix. Florio pointed out that this could just be posturing.

As to the Panthers, there's never been anything to actually indicate Kelly wanted to come here. People speculated that he'd be a good fit, but nothing's ever come out to indicate there was interest on his part.

The only thing known for certain is that he wants to coach in the NFL, not any particular team. His agent is leveraging teams against each other to get him the best offer, even if it's at Oregon.

Bears have added Rick Dennison to their "all offense" list of coaching interviews.

And here's one for our buddy Boltergeist. There are rumors that the Chargers might look into Mike Holmgren as a potential head coach.

Yup exactly what I was thinking.

You knoe Kelly would've love to have Cam.

If Rivera fail next season, I can almost gurantee Kelly would be a hot name to Carolina
