The Browns are expected to interview Oregon Head Coach Chip Kelly as early as Friday in Arizona. Kelly and the Ducks are there to play Kansas State in the Fiesta Bowl on Thursday night. The Buffalo Bills are also said to be in Arizona and reportedly will interview Kelly on Friday.
Former Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt and Cardinals Defensive Coordinator Ray Horton are two candidates that the Browns have already interviewed. Penn State coach Bill O'Brien was believed to be the fourth man they were considering. They interviewed him earlier in the week, but word broke Thursday night that he would stay at Penn State. Kelly is their top choice and they are expected to make him a large offer.
Last year Kelly turned down overtures from Tampa Bay and decided to stay in Oregon.
