The former Philadelphia Eagles coach has reportedly met with the 49ers and Alabama’s football staff as he searches for a new coaching job.
The Eagles fired Kelly before their final game of the season. Kelly led Philadelphia to a 26–21 record in nearly three full seasons as head coach, and has expressed his desire to stay in coaching.
In addition to meeting with Kelly, the 49ers have also reportedly met with Buffalo Bills running backs coach Anthony Lynn and have a meeting scheduled with Cleveland Browns offensive coordinator John DeFilippo for Friday, according to ESPN.
ESPN has reported Kelly would prefer to be hired as an NFL coach, though ESPN’s Brett McMurphy reported Thursday that the former Oregon coach visited Alabama’s football staff this week.
