Oregon coach Chip Kelly said he would talk to his agent on Friday about sorting through his NFL suitors, but offered little else after his Ducks beat Kansas State in the Fiesta Bowl on Thursday in Glendale, Ariz.
"I'll talk to Dave (Dunn) tomorrow," Kelly said after Oregon's 35-17 victory. "I said I'll always listen and that's what I'll do."
The Philadelphia Eagles, Cleveland Browns and Buffalo Bills are all slated to interview Kelly for their head-coaching vacancies, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported.
Kelly has become the next hot NFL coaching prospect during four spectacular seasons as Oregon's head coach and two as the school's offensive coordinator. He's gone 46-7 as Oregon's coach, but even more attractive for many NFL executives is his innovative offensive approach, which consistently lights up the scoreboard and excites fans.
At the podium Thursday night after leading his team to a BCS bowl victory for the second year in a row, Kelly was quick to credit his players when the subject of his NFL future arose.
"I know that people want to talk to me because of our players," he said "... it's because of what those guys do."
