Chip Kelly Schedules Three Interviews, Includes Buffalo Bills

Steve Dykes

University of Oregon head coach Chip Kelly has scheduled head coaching interviews with three NFL teams - and the Buffalo Bills are one of them.

University of Oregon head coach Chip Kelly, considered by many to be the hottest coaching commodity on the NFL market, has reportedly scheduled interviews with three teams - and the Buffalo Bills are on his list.

Per Mike Garofalo of USA Today, Kelly will interview with the Bills, the Cleveland Browns and the Philadelphia Eagles about each team's coaching vacancy. The interviews will not take place until after Oregon participates in tomorrow night's Fiesta Bowl against Kansas State, which Bills fans may now want to tune in for. (Tomorrow night, 8:30 PM, ESPN.)

Kelly, 49, is 45-7 in four seasons as Oregon's head coach. He had not previously had any head coaching experience, and has never worked, played or coach at the NFL level before. Still, his innovative coaching style is a coveted commodity amongst professional brass that are eager for their franchises to feel ahead of the curve in a stagnating NFL coaching landscape.

Buffalo has also interviewed or scheduled interviews with Ken Whisenhunt (former head coach of the Arizona Cardinals) and Ray Horton (currently the Cardinals' defensive coordinator) in the Arizona area. Now, it's looking like they'll sneak a Kelly interview in before they make a trip to Colorado to interview Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy. Clearly, at this point, Kelly is the biggest fish that the Bills are pursuing, however.
