Chip Kelly is the of­fen­sive­minded, ex­pe­ri­enced head coach the San Fran­cisco 49ers have long sought, and now he needs to win – right away. The 49ers hired the for­mer Ea­gles coach on Thurs­day, find­ing the leader CEO Jed York is count­ing on to turn things around for his on­ce­proud fran­chise. The 52-yearold Kelly was fired by Philadel­phia af­ter Week 16 with a game left in his third sea­son as coach. The for­mer Univer­sity of Ore­gon coach was 6-9 in 2015 fol­low­ing two 10-6 sea­sons.
