(Discussion) Is Chip Kelly The Right Guy For The 49ers Head Coach Job?

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.

I'm glad to see him get another NFL coaching job!
I mean the 49ers have some talent and chip Kelly might be able to help them out
I think he's a solid choice with high upside and limited downside. He's proven capable of successfully leading a team to double digit wins, but I think he'll need to control his propensity for gambling on questionable choices for this to work out in the long term.

NFL Dads Tackle Hair Styling In This Pantene Campaign.
Every year, major sponsors shell out some serious cash to grab our attention during the Super Bowl, by far the largest single sporting event of the year. They enlist A-List celebrities, bust out the CGI, and have the ability to transform a typical 30-second spot into a minute long movie of epic proportions. However, if there's one thing that these companies can learn from haircare brand Pantene this year, it's that turning on America's feels doesn't have to be that complicated - just bring in the adorableness of some NFL kids! Pantene's 'Dad-Do' Super Bowl campaign features a number of popular NFL fathers taking a stab at styling their daughters' hair with Pantene products. Like you could probably guess, they definitely struggle through it, but with some adorable encouragement from their daughters, the results are very much 'aww'-worthy. (My personal favorite is pictured above: DeAngelo Williams of the Pittsburgh Steelers versus his daughter Rhiya's braids and bows.) Benjamin Watson, tight end for the New Orleans Saints, displayed some pigtail game earning an impressed high five from his daughter, Grace. (He tried to argue that bigger hands make it hard for athletes to style hair, but he didn't do too bad for a first-timer!) The Dallas Cowboys' Jason Witten's adorable daughter Landry was SUPPOSED to get a braided ballerina bun, but let's just say there were some complications on the way. (Hey, if there's anything the Cowboys learned this season, it's that you can't win 'em all!) Click the video above for a look at the finished 30-second Super Bowl ad, or visit Pantene's official YouTube Channel to watch the full styling videos from each athlete. So how do you think they did? Was this concept just as adorable to you as it was to me? Let me know in the comments below and for more trending videos from across the web, follow my YouTube Nation collection!
