The 49ers are in rebuild mode. When looking to get a franchise heading in the right direction, it normally starts with the coach and general manager.
San Fran has a fair amount of cap space, a good draft pick and solid pieces. This makes this a pretty intriguing job. From the looks of it, they have found their guy at coach, as they hired Chip Kelly earlier today.
"As one of the most historic franchises in the National Football League, I realize the high standards and expectations that this position demands and I embrace the challenges ahead," Kelly said in a statement. "My immediate focus is to build the best coaching staff possible, one that will maximize the abilities of each of our players and put us in the best position to win football games."
Kelly, who went to Philadelphia after four seasons as coach at Oregon, had consecutive 10-6 seasons with the Eagles before this season's flameout, which began with controversy over his handling of the roster. On the pro level, Chip has often demanded a lot of control with player additions, which didn't work too well in Philly in the back end. With that being said, the offense was fairly explosive throughout his rebuilding process.
