CLEVELAND (AP) - Once Chip Kelly finishes coaching Oregon in the Fiesta Bowl, the Browns will be waiting to speak with him. They won't be alone.
Philadelphia and Buffalo are also interested in signing Kelly, the Ducks coach and offensive mastermind whose break-neck system is already having an impact on the NFL. Browns owner Jimmy Haslam and CEO Joe Banner have scheduled an interview with Kelly that could take place as early as Friday. The Browns are looking to replace Pat Shurmur, who was fired following a 5-11 season.
Haslam said earlier this week he was confident the Browns would be able to land a top coach and isn't worried ``about who else is out there looking.''
Kelly's lack of pro coaching experience isn't scaring off the Browns, who have already interviewed former Arizona coach Ken Whisenhunt and Cardinals defensive coordinator Ray Horton.
