Chip Kelly and his built-for-speed, built-for-the-wide-open college game offense are staying in the college ranks.
We won't know what the NFL version of this offense would have looked like, and that's a big part of the disappointment that comes with the Browns watching their first choice for their head coaching job decide to keep his current one.
Jimmy Haslam paid 1 billion to buy the Browns last fall, and it's hard to blame him for wanting to put the shiniest, fastest, most innovative toys in his new garage. From the list of names we think we know the Browns have either contacted, interviewed or wish to, it's clear an offensive-minded coach is on the list. Kelly's status as the first guy multiple teams wanted to interview was well-earned, and though there's no guarantee his offense would have worked at the NFL, wouldn't it have been nice to see a certain brand of aggressive, out-of-the box thinking in regard to the Browns?

Oregon is a better job than the Eagles.
It seems that it's only a matter of time before Chip Kelly is officially announced as the new head coach of the Cleveland Browns. And that should excite Browns fans. This marks the beginning of a new era in the history of the Cleveland Browns. In years past, the team would have most likely settled for the their third or fourth pick for head coach. In this case however...
CLEVELAND (AP) -- On the 10th anniversary of their last playoff appearance, the Browns may be in unexpected fight over Oregon coach Chip Kelly.
Cleveland has been awaiting a second meeting with Kelly, the Ducks' offensive mastermind, on Saturday to hopefully complete a deal to make him the Browns' sixth fulltime coach since 1999. However, Kelly decided to keep a scheduled...

Chip Kelly decided against moving over the NFL this weekend, instead choosing to stick it out in Eugene, Ore., as the Ducks’ head coach.
The Oregonian implied that Kelly may be waiting for his dream job to come along before moving to the pros. As a New Hampshire native, Kelly’s dream job may be that of New England Patriots head coach. There’s no telling when Bill Belichick...
In the end, the chance to remain king and win a National Championship was more important than being the new guy. ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter is reporting that Kelly has chosen to stay at Oregon and spurn the NFL once again.
Kelly obviously likes to be courted, but in the end, chose the jerseys and being the king of the Pac 12 over Vick and Foles.
Peter King adds that the Eagles seem to telling Chip Kelly that “we like you, but we’ll be fine without you.” King also mentions that Kelly could end up getting “cold feet” due to “not seeing an ideal job” and return to Oregon.

Where I hit you with some thoughts/opinions on the Bills reported coaching candidates.
Consider me in the camp of people who would love to have Chip coach our team. After the glut of stodgy older coaches (Gailey, Jauron), or coaches that buy into older philosophies (Mularkey), it sure would be nice to welcome a younger guy who is widely considered one of the biggest...
