According to John Canzano of The Oregonian, Kelly is holding out for something bigger than the Philadelphia Eagles or the Cleveland Browns: he wants Bill Belichick's job.
Canzano wrote, "I think the job Kelly absolutely wants is the [job] currently held by 60-year-old three-time Super Bowl champion head coach Bill Belichick, who is as close to Kelly in his monomaniacal drive and ultimate hands-on style as there is in sports.”
Kelly is the head coach for the Oregon Ducks, and as Canzano points out, "Belichick has unique control of Robert Kraft‘s franchise in the same way Kelly does at Oregon."
With Kelly as their head coach, the Ducks have gone 46-7 in the last four seasons and made four consecutive BCS Bowl games.
