Source: Bills to interview Oregon’s Chip Kelly
Question of the Day
BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Oregon coach Chip Kelly won’t have much time to rest after the Fiesta Bowl.
The interview will take place in Arizona, a day after the fifth-ranked Ducks play Kansas State in the Fiesta Bowl. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the Bills and Kelly haven’t revealed the meeting will take place.
USA Today first reported that Kelly was scheduled to interview with Buffalo.
Bills newly promoted president Russ Brandon and front-office brain trust have been in Arizona since Tuesday conducting their coaching search. According to the Bills‘ website, the team interviewed Cardinals defensive coordinator Ray Horton on Wednesday, a day after meeting with former Arizona coach Ken Whisenhunt, who was fired Monday.
In four years at Oregon, Kelly has a 45-7 record, and is known for his up-tempo offense that has transformed the Ducks into a national power. He is regarded as one of college football’s prime candidates for an NFL coaching job this offseason.
Kelly has been deflecting questions about his future all week. He did so again Wednesday when he was asked if he expects to be contacted by NFL teams in the days ahead.
“I don’t expect anything,” Kelly said. “I said this a million times. I’m never surprised by anything. I do not know what the future holds. I do know we have a football game tomorrow night and I’m going to be there.”
The Bills are in the midst of their fifth coaching search since 2001 after Chan Gailey was fired Monday following three consecutive losing seasons.
A second person familiar with Mike McCoy’s schedule said the Broncos’ offensive coordinator is set to interview with the Bills in Denver this weekend. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the Bills have not revealed their list of candidates.
As the AFC’s top seed, the Broncos have this weekend off before opening the playoffs the following week. They’ve allotted time for teams interested in McCoy to interview him in Denver this weekend.
