New 49ers coach will determine Colin Kaepernick's future

CSN Bay Area - [Full Article]

The next 49ers coach will likely determine the identity of the No. 7 overall draft pick, as well as Colin Kaepernick’s future with the franchise.

Ever since Kaepernick was benched and later underwent season-ending surgery on his non-throwing shoulder in late-November, it was difficult to come up with any scenario in which he would return to the 49ers next season.

Now, there’s a scenario.

The 49ers are expected to hire an offensive-minded head coach to replace Jim Tomsula, whom CEO Jed York officially fired Sunday night after the team defeated the St. Louis Rams in overtime to finish the season with a 5-11 record.

Fantasy Impact: 

Chip Kelly has expressed interest in the job, and he could possibly be a coach who helps to keep Kaepernick in San Francisco.
