Per Green's Twitter:

Could be interesting seeing how he said he would be deciding "soon" last night.

There are also rumors that if he were to jump ship, that Oregon would promote his OC to HC, per agreement of chip Kelly to stay for the extra year instead of jumping ship last year. Not sure if true, but at the least would indicate that the system would stay the same. Of course, HC leaving would present a great deal of uncertainty anyways.

All you need is one that's willing to try it, and I don't think it's true that none would. It's hard to find success in the NFL, even with a regular coach, and coaching hires are really challenging. You have your choice of has-beens that have already proven they can lose somewhere else, up-and-coming coordinators with no head coaching experience, or college coaches. It's an inexact science obviously, and there's no reason that no one would take a chance with Kelly.

Yes, because with only moderate to midling success running the spread in college against teams with a pulse on defense makes him a great candidate to do so in the NFL. Love the kid as a person and as an athlete, but an NFL QB, no matter the system, he is not. An NFL player at another position, he most certainly can be.

Cleveland Browns fan here.  LOTS of rumors floating around C-Town that Kelly will be the next coach once we rid ourselves of the NFL's version of Kirk Ferentz.  Word has it that the new owner Haslam wants to make a splash with his first HC hire, not afraid to take risks, has the money, and doesnt want an NFL HC re-tread.

That sure sounds like Kelly to me.

"Tennessee, Auburn, Oregon, Ole Miss"

I would like to think the list is really just Oregon and Ole Miss, given the tire fires that Tennessee and Auburn are right now.

 I would be shocked if he left Alabama anytime soon. He has a huge paycheck and has made Alabama easily the best college program and no signs of slowing. He's already taken a shot at the NFL and failed and honestly a team would have to throw 4-5 million a year at saban to get him to move. The only teams dumb enough to do that would be Washington and the Cowboys probably
