There has been a lot of scrutiny on Chip Kelly since he began coaching in the NFL.
Many in NFL circles believe that the San Francisco 49ers head coach will go back to coaching college football this season, via CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora. He said that Kelly’s peers are continuing to ridicule him about his offense.
“He just keeps running the same s*** and it isn’t fooling anybody,” one NFL executive said to La Canfora. “Do you think they could bring him back to Oregon?”
Many in the league believe that he will bolt with potentially some huge jobs being open in college football.
Kelly did himself no favors while coaching the Philadelphia Eagles. He inherited, if nothing else, a very explosive football team. He won 10 games in each of his first two season, but he got rid of DeSean Jackson, Jeremy Maclin and LeSean McCoy. He was fired with one game remaining last season.
He started with 49ers this season, and inherited one of the worst rosters in the league. They throttled the Los Angeles Rams in the season opener, and have played some competitive football throughout the season.
However, their lack of talent is obvious and they have lost five consecutive games.
