Chip Kelly is the new head coach of the San Francisco 49ers. The 'Niners have named him the 20th head coach in franchise history, replacing the fired Jim Tomsula. Mike Shanahan was reportedly the other finalist.
Kelly was fired as head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles after three seasons. He went 10-and-6 in each of his first two years in Philly, winning the NFC East his first season. The Eagles slipped to 7-and-9 this season, and the former Oregon Ducks head coach was let go with one game left on the schedule. The 49ers finished last in the NFC West this season at 5-and-11.
