Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain-Dealer is reporting that the Cleveland Browns are scheduled to interview Oregon head coach Chip Kelly sometime this weekend once tonight’s Fiesta Bowl game concludes and his season is over. If the interview goes well, they plan on making him an offer he can’t refuse. If Kelly does come to NFL, he’ll undoubtedly look to incorporate his high-tempo spread offense that has made the Ducks one of the top rushing offenses in college football, as well as one of highest-scoring offenses.

 

The Arizona Cardinals have requested permission to speak to Pittsburgh Steelers Offensive Coordinator Todd Haley about their head-coaching vacancy, and the Steelers have given the permission to do such. If Haley ends up receiving an offer and accepting it, the Steelers will have to find their third offensive coordinator in as many seasons after the team let colts Offensive Coordinator Bruce Arians go last offseason. Haley was originally Arizona’s offensive coordinator in 2007 and 2008 before he became head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs from 2009

 

Baltimore Ravens MLB Ray Lewis announced yesterday that the 17-year pro will retire this offseason, and even though he has yet to play since October 14 against the Dallas Cowboys when he tore his biceps, he was a full participant in practice Wednesday, and it is looking more likely that Lewis have the opportunity to walk off the field the final time in football pads and not in street clothes.
