Jobs are now opening up. Bears, Eagles, Browns, and Bills all open. We will post everything we hear as well as articles on this subject here for a one stop shop approach.
Please keep the discussion here.
Jets are keeping Rex one more year. Fired GM.
Cardinals and Chargers are open.
Right now most media are speculating Browns and Eagles have Chip high or atop their coaching board.

Doesn't sound like the Eagles want to give full control. The Browns are the Browns (need I say more?).
I'm wondering if the Bears might be a player. Was Lovie Smith expected to be fired?
I disagree. I think the Browns might be a player. If Chip truly does want more control than just being head coach, they are one of the franchises that can offer that.
Disclaimer: I hope he stays but it seems inevitable that at some stage, whether this year or down the road, Chip will pursue the NFL.
TJ Ward speaks about Chip Kelly to Browns and that possibility.

Somebody PLEASE show me a quote from Chip saying he has NFL coaching aspirations...Otherwise this is pointless...
This is annoying. I really hope this doesn't affect the players in the bowl game.
Chip Kelly is the 'IT' prospect for Cleveland.
Rumors of more coaching candidates to replace Pat Shurmur surface.
The rumor legs are starting to pick up but maybe the best rumor out there right now is that Chip Kelly is apparently on an airplane heading to an NFL Franchise. Meanwhile back in reality he is speaking with media for the Fiesta Bowl.
Brandon Weeden on Chip Kelly's spread offense.
Chip Kelly on NFL distractions or lack of distractions
Casey Matthews chimes in on Chip Kelly.
Tampa Bay last year is a pretty big indication.
Browns will give head coach final say on roster moves. That is an item Chip Kelly is rumored to want.
You're joking right?
Wow...All I read is more SPECULATION about teams being interested in Chip, and interviews with players about how they THINK he might do in the NFL, or how they THINK he might want to go back east...But NOTHING from Chip saying he WANTS to coach in the NFL...Sheesh...
OF COURSE when you have a coach as successful as Chip Kelly, the NFL will come calling, but that doesn't mean Chip WANTS to leave...
All of this specualtion should be posted in the Weekly World News, or the National Enquirer, for as much PURE SPECULATION as there is unvolved...
It's almost like people are wishing it to happen so much, that it's almost like creating a self-fulfilling prophecy...
Until Chip signs a contract, or addresses the issue personally, I'm going to choose to stick to the FACTS...That Chip Kelly is the head coach at Oregon, and nothing more...
well, Weeden is honest, that's for sure.
damn, philly fans slamming Casey after his tweet (Scroll down on his tweet)
KC is also open......Browns are the browns and I dont think they have the personel kelly is looking for....at least in philly you have djack, mccoy and vick....
I will say that the number of nfl openings does scare me..
You're absolutely right Matt, the Tampa Bay situation was a HUGE indication...
First, Tampa Bay called him...
Secondly, he listened, as most any smart coach would do...
Third, they offered him a HUGE contract...
Fourth, he considered it...
Fifth, he TURNED IT DOWN!!!
Lastly, his quotes afterwards said he was flattered and intrigued by the offer, but in the end, he had unfinished business at Oregon, AND...HIS HEART WAS IN COLLEGE FOOTBALL...
People seem to forget that last quote...
You're going to be real upset in the next few weeks.
Dang you are right. Pretty crazy comments.
Didn't see the KC job opened up too. With so many NFL jobs open someone will get desperate to make that big hire and will give the world. Can Chip turn it down a second time?
Nick Saban also said he wouldn't be the next coach of Alabama. Coaches lie.
Did you expect him to say he was coming back to Oregon but only until he found a good NFL job so he could leave? Get real.
Well I guess the Browns need a new quarterback then.
I heard the Browns are after Saban..
Enjoy Life, it has an expiration date.
I'm not going to be upset about anything...Que Sera, Sera...
I would just rather focus on facts more than speculation...
If Chip stays at Oregon, then all we'll hear about every year at this time is more speculation about head coaching jobs...
If Chip leaves, then it means that he found an offer he couldn't refuse and all the folks that saw him leaving will say how they saw this coming...
I'm not speculating or guessing at anything, just looking at the facts...Chip Kelly is currently the head coach at Oregon until he leaves...
I choose to focus on why I subscribed to this sight, which is to get info on recruiting, not stay up at night worrying about whether Chip stays or goes...I know our future commits don't seem concerned about it...
