Rumor killer on Chip Kelly wanting 'total control'

Important for teams interested in #Oregon coach Chip Kelly: He would NOT require total control of football ops to take an NFL job, I'm told

It was honestly never a likely scenario anyway.

Browns may give it to him anyway.

Joe Banner is already in Phoenix and has an interview set for Friday.

I'd give him full control if I was an owner... Id also put clauses in his contract so that if I didn't like what he was doing (by talking to players and others on the coaching staff/scouting dept. I could cut my losses with minimal financial obligation. I coach can get fired just as easily as any employee that works anywhere. Giving him "full control" is a BS term that ESPN came up with anyways, and now everyone has run with it. It's easy to confuse the sheople... The Wolves on the other hand are never convinced

The biggest obstacle to him coming here is the fact that we won't even know if we're getting rid of the one we have until after the GM is hired more than likely. Assuming we do get rid of Rivera after the GM comes to town by the time Kelly, being a hot commodity, will likely have already narrowed his field.

Every day we don't have a GM in place it's more and more likely that Rivera is here next year OR we hire a "leftover" coach.

Don't think JR will get into a bidding war for Kelly:

Informed sources have confirmed to DuckTerritory that Oregon head coach Chip Kelly has in fact emerged as the clear-cut front runner for the vacant head coaching position for the Philadelphia Eagles. Confirmation from sources comes on the heels of a Philadelphia Inquirer report published Monday that indicated Kelly is the leading candidate to replace former Eagles head coach Andy Reid, who was fired Monday after accumulating a 130-93-1 overall record in 14 seasons with Philadelphia.

It is unknown at this time whether Philadelphia has or is planning to offer Kelly final say on all roster transactions, which sources indicate could be a deal-breaker in all potential contract negotiations between Kelly and prospective NFL franchises.

Additionally, an NFL source indicated Wednesday morning that Kelly "will interview" with Philadelphia and the Cleveland Browns, with the Browns expected to offer more control over personnel.

Oregon sources indicate that Kelly has been quiet regarding his plans for the future. His focus seems to be on the Fiesta Bowl, with decisions about his future coming quickly thereafter.

The No. 4 Ducks play the No. 5 Kansas State Wildcats in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl on January 3.

Giving full control to someone with no NFL experience? good luck with that

    • Another thing that jumped out to me that I didn't expect was that Philly Brown seemed to get a lot more playing time than I remembered.    I like Philly a lot, but it's not surprising we didn't re-sign him. He didn't do much with the playing time we gave him. 
    • Ok guys, I am trying to take a look at the roster.  Let me know if I missed any players, have any of the positions wrong, or you think any players need to be moved for the current depth chart.
