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)


haha that made me laugh

I just can't see Chip on the Browns with Weeden and McCoy

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

Actually, turns out the issue with Kelly harkens back to a prior story.

Per Jason LaCanfora, one of the big sticking points in the negotiations with Kelly was...roster control.

The Browns were willing to give a certain amount (precisely how much isn't certain but Haslam sounded pretty giving). The Eagles may have been offering more money, but were said to be less likely to offer roster control because owner Jeffrey Lurie believes strongly in Howie Roseman (strong enough that he fired Andy Reid).

Turns out inital reports about what he wanted may have been right.

UTKevinAcee: Chargers have two more GM interviews scheduled, but it seems those might not happen. All but certain it's Jimmy Raye or Tom Telesco.

In-house candidate that they seem to really like. I'd assume if he isn't hired, he probably wouldn't stick around too much longer. I think I read that many league sources expect him to be a GM at some point, either in SD or elsewhere.
