WOW, I was not expecting this since it was his first season on the job. So the man has now been fired two years in a row. Looks like he better go back to college

I'm not a Chip Kelly fan. I think he's a douche. That being said, I don't think Bill Walsh in his heyday could've done any better with the 49ers craptastic roster.

Unless the Bills or Jets are really desperate I, too, think Chip's days as an NFL head coach are over.

it's no way he is getting another job in the NFL after being fired 2 years in a row by two different teams.

What coach would possibly want to coach there right now?? I don't even think Bill Belicheck could've managed this crappy roster to better than a 5-11 record.

Smart move. I didn't think they'd do it.. But it really needs to be done.. So.. Kudos to SF for pulling the trigger.

Bet Oregon wishes they hadn't hired someone so quickly at this point.

If he's gone, then Trent Balke better be. One of the worst sports GMs I can recall in recent memory.

I think Chip may take a year off, and go back to the college ranks.
Taking the 49er job was a real mistake by him------he would have been better off returning to coach a couple of years in college, building a winning program, and than if he desired return to the Nfl to a franchise that has a plan and a decent GM.
