Kelly would be an interesting fit for the 49ers. He would likely have very little, if any, control over roster moves because his tenure with the Eagles was filled with questionable roster choices. Chip Kelly could try to rebuild his reputation with the 49ers and try to prove that he can still be a great NFL coach.
