Breaking: San Francisco 49ers Hired Chip Kelly


San Francisco, CA – The San Francisco 49ers have hired Chip Kelly as the team’s head coach.

Kelly was fired back in December as head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles, after his team went 6-10 in the season despite having two back to back 10-6 seasons.

San Francisco went 5-11 under first-year coach Jim Tomsula and missed the playoffs for the second straight season.

Kelly biggest disappointment came after he was given full personnel control and didn’t know what to do with it.

A lot questions will now spark from this hiring, as it had been noted that Colin Kaepernick’s days as a 49er were counted. With Kelly at the helm, Kaepernick style of play may be suited to the offense Kelly will implement.

The 49ers passed on Mike Shanaham who had also been interviewed this past week and is said to be eager to return to the NFL.

This will be Kelly’s second stint with an NFL team.
