Kelly Interviews with 49ers




Former Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly interviewed with the San Francisco 49ers about their head-coaching vacancy, reported Thursday night.

The Eagles fired Kelly with one week remaining in the season. He had a 26-21 mark in three seasons with the Eagles after signing a five-year, $32.5 million contract to leave the University of Oregon in 2013.

According to, the 49ers also interviewed Buffalo Bills running backs coach Anthony Lynn on Thursday. Lynn interviewed with the Miami Dolphins on Wednesday.

Kelly, 52, posted 10-win seasons in his first two years in Philadelphia before when the team was 6-9 last month. He took over player-personnel duties ahead of the 2015 season, and his string of moves — including replacing running back LeSean McCoy with DeMarco Murray and replacing quarterback Nick Foles with Sam Bradford — came in for frequent criticism.

In four seasons as head coach at Oregon, Kelly led the Ducks to double-digits wins each year and a 46-7 record overall.
