The Browns are set to interview Oregon coach Chip Kelly, who said he hopes to have the process "wrapped up quickly."

Kelly led the Ducks to a 35-17 win over Kansas State on Thursday night. Afterward, Kelly acknowledged he will meet with some NFL teams on what he described "as a fact-finding mission, finding out if it fits or doesn't fit." Kelly did not say which teams he will meet with Friday and left open the possibility he would not make the jump to the pros. He turned down an offer from Tampa Bay last year.

The Buffalo Bills and Philadelphia Eagles are also interested in Kelly, who is 46-7 in four seasons with the Ducks.

Kelly is believed to be the top choice of the Browns. Cleveland owner Jimmy Haslam and CEO Joe Banner have been conducting interviews in Arizona all week.
