CLEVELAND (AP) — Chip Kelly wouldn’t jump. So the Browns bailed.
A person familiar with Cleveland’s coaching search said the team is no longer considering Kelly for its coaching vacancy after the offensive mastermind nearly reached an agreement with the Browns on Friday. The 49-year-old Kelly was indecisive about making the leap to the NFL and the team decided to move on to other candidates.
The Browns questioned whether Kelly “was committed to coming to the NFL.” ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reported Kelly was seriously considering staying at Oregon.
