Chip Kelly was considered for another NFL job after being fired by the 49ers.
Former 49ers and Eagles head coach Chip Kelly had an interview with the Jaguars about their vacant head coaching job, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports.
Jacksonville eventually decided to hire interim head coach Doug Marrone on a full-time basis.
Kelly was fired after just one season in San Francisco, during which the Niners went 2–14. The former Oregon coach previously went 26–21 in three seasons with the Eagles.
Kelly’s name was also thrown around in connection with the head coach opening at Cal after the Golden Bears fired Sonny Dykes. The school ended up hiring Wisconsin defensive coordinator Justin Wilcox. Kelly said this month that he would not rule out a return to college.
