Chip Kelly hired as Head Coach of San Francisco 49ers

Jed York; CEO of the 49ers has just announced via twitter that Chip Kelly will be the new Head Coach at San Francisco following the firing of Jim Tomsula.   Kelly joins the organisation with a 26-21 record in the NFL during his tenure with the Philadelphia Eagles. He is widely known for utilising a college-style attack that requires use of fast-paced no-huddle play calls to keep opposing defenses off guard.   A solid hire for the 49ers following a 5-11 year; Chip Kelly has been known as a creator of a Quarterback-proof offense, that featured career years for Quarterbacks at the helm such as Nick Foles, and some solid numbers from Mark Sanchez.   It will be interesting to see how much power he is given over the roster, as his choices during his time at the Eagles through the draft and free agency left him with a team lacking talent at a lot of positions; particularly the offensive line. I expect him to be paired with a GM with strong vision for the team and it’s drafting process to try and get the Niners out of the hole that they are in, both in lack of talent and standing in the NFC West.
