Fiesta Bowl 2013: Browns and Eagles interested in Oregon's Chip Kelly

Mark J. Rebilas-US PRESSWIRE

With the Fiesta Bowl set to kick off on Thursday evening, it could also mark the final game of Chip Kelly's tenure at Oregon. CBS.com's Jason La Canfora reported Sunday that both the Browns and Eagles are interested in Kelly as their next head coach.

Oregon's Fiesta Bowl match-up with Kansas State on Thursday could also mark head coach Chip Kelly's final game at the school, according to CBSSports.com's Jason La Canfora. La Canfora reported on Sunday that NFL league sources have indicated that both the Philadelphia Eagles and Cleveland Browns could be interested in bringing Kelly in as their next head coach.

The Eagles and the Browns both fired their head coaches on Monday, but according to La Canfora it is only "50/50" that Kelly will leave college football. He considered the Tampa Bay Buccaneers job last winter before ultimately turning it down.

If Kelly were to leave, it would mark the end of one of the great runs in recent college football history.

Since being named head coach at Oregon prior to the 2009 season, Kelly has a record of 45-7 overall with a remarkable 33-3 mark in Pac-12 play. The Ducks won the Pac-12 championship in each of Kelly's first three seasons at the school, and played in the BCS title game following the 2010 season as well.

The Fiesta Bowl will be played this Thursday, January 3 at 8:30 p.m. on ESPN.
