Is Chip Kelly the Right Hire in San Francisco?

Chip Kelly San Francisco

It was just last year that the San Francisco 49ers were in the headlines because of a coaching move — as the team cut its ties with Jim Harbaugh, who had led the 49ers deep into the playoffs, including a berth in a Super Bowl, a moment that had rattled the lines of most online betting sites. Jim Harbaugh had developed a sour relationship with Jed York and the rest of the front office, so the Niners brought in the absolutely underwhelming Jim Tomsula, a defensive line who would be a good company man but would be an absolute disaster in leading the team.

Now the 49ers are making another big move, bringing in Chip Kelly, whom the Philadelphia Eagles just fired. So in the space of about twelve months, the team has gotten rid of one offensive genius with an abrasive personality and brought in another one to save the team’s fortunes. Is this the right move?

Well, that answer depends on a couple of things. If Kelly can resurrect the fortunes of Colin Kaepernick, who went from guiding the Nevada Wolfpack in college to a Super Bowl after dislodging Alex Smith from the San Francisco quarterback position to sitting on the bench behind Blaine Gabbert, of all people, then he will be a success. He will also have to learn from the things that motivated the Eagles to send him packing — without having gone through much time to consider what happened in his tenure there.
