Chip Kelly Met With 49ers About HC Job


If San Francisco 49ers fans want the team to make a splashy hire, Chip Kelly might be the best option. NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Friday that Kelly met with the Niners on Thursday, per a source. CSN Bay Area’s Matt Maiocco first reported the meeting. Kelly flamed out in Philadelphia after taking over personnel control in 2015. In three seasons with the Eagles he finished 26-21, including two 10-win seasons and a playoff berth in his first year. Kelly is an intriguing candidate in San Francisco and would be a huge flip for the franchise after the disastrous ousting of Jim Harbaugh and hiring of Jim Tomsula.
