Chip Kelly named head coach of the 49ers

ESPN - [Full Article]

The San Francisco 49ers have hired Chip Kelly to be the 10th head coach in franchise history, 11 days after firing Jim Tomsula following a 5-11, one-and-done season.

Kelly, 52, interviewed with the 49ers last week. He was fired in this third season as coach of the Philadelphia Eagles with one week to go in the season and the Eagles languishing at 6-9.

Fantasy Impact: 

Kelly reportedly will not have control over personnel decisions. His arrival is good news for the entire offense, especially Colin Kaepernick who may get another chance to start. In three seasons, Kelly's offenses finished 4th, 3rd and 13th in points scored.
