Chip Kelly To Meet With the Buffalo Bills Friday Night, Per ESPN

Steve Dykes

ESPN is reporting that despite near ironclad reports indicating Chip Kelly was going to sign with the Cleveland Browns, he has ended his meeting with them and will meet with Buffalo tonight.

I bet you can't eat just one.

Multiple media reports today had Oregon head coach Chip Kelly close to an agreement with the Cleveland Browns to fill their head coaching vacancy. Just like Andy Reid to the Cardinals talk earlier in the week, it appears as these reports were premature. Kelly has ended his meeting with the Browns and will meet with the Buffalo Bills tonight, according to Chris Mortenson.

"(Kelly and the Browns) agreed to talk again Saturday night after Kelly's interviews with the Bills later Friday night and the Eagles on Saturday," says Mortenson. He continued, "Kelly informed Haslam and Banner that he wanted to 'go through the process' by meeting with the Bills and Eagles."

It should also be noted that there were conflicting reports about whether the Bills met with Kelly this morning. Jerry Sullivan noted during his chat this morning at the Buffalo News that he believed the Bills' search team was meeting with Kelly at that moment, but nothing has been confirmed.

As Mortenson notes, the Browns are still the front-runner, but any time you can keep a door open, you have the opportunity to make the sale. Buffalo's late night tonight will be followed by at least one interview tomorrow with Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy and possibly one with former Chicago Bears head coach Lovie Smith. Syracuse head coach Doug Marrone is also in the mix but nobody seems to know when the interview will - or already did - take place.
