Per a source with knowledge of the process, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported Wednesday that the Cleveland Browns plan to interview the Oregon coach after the Fiesta Bowl on either Friday or over the weekend.

Multiple reports have Kelly atop Cleveland's wish list. He's also slated to interview with the Philadelphia Eagles and Buffalo Bills, per Rapoport.

Kelly said this week he has "no idea what the future holds," but it's widely believed he's preparing to make the leap to the NFL with no less than seven teams looking for new coaches.
