He's been out of the NFL game for three years now. I'm never one for hiring collegiate coaches, but that's me. I think Cleveland or Philadelphia will be making a huge mistake with Chip Kelly, too. Maybe Buffalo found their diamond in the rough with Marrone, and I'd take him over Kelly, but passing on Lovie Smith or Ken Whisenhunt for him will come back to bite them, in my opinion. We'll see. I'm shocked after the Chan Gailey experiment that they'd go this way again.
