CLEVELAND (AP) - For once, Chip Kelly isn't in hurry-up mode.
Oregon's innovative offensive coach has not yet decided if he'll jump to the NFL and he's weighing offers from the Browns and Philadelphia Eagles, who appear to be in a bidding war for the 49-year-old with zero pro experience. The Browns were close to completing a deal with Kelly on Friday, but he didn't give them an answer and kept a scheduled meeting Saturday with the Eagles.
There's a deeper wrinkle to the Browns vs. Eagles battle for Kelly. Browns CEO Joe Banner spent 19 seasons in Philadelphia before leaving last year. He's childhood friends with Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie, who could be trying to lure Kelly away from Cleveland.
Banner and Browns owner Jimmy Haslam have been conducting interviews since firing Pat Shurmur last week.
