What a classy move by a once-classy organization. On the eve of Week 17, six days after the 49ers won their second game of the season, San Francisco is gutting the joint. What a disaster they’ve been since firing Jim Harbaugh. They gave Jim Tomsula one year, and now Chip Kelly, too?
Good luck finding a coach and GM who will want the job now.
Talk about a rapid fall:
2012 – 49ers lose in the Super Bowl on the final play
2013 – 49ers blow a 4th quarter lead, lose NFC title game in Seattle
2014 – Baalke decides Harbaugh’s getting too much credit, they fight all year
2015 – Harbaugh is fired for Jim Tomsula, the 49ers go 5-11
2016 – Chip Kelly starts 2-13 in his first year, and now gets fired
Now the Chip Kelly question becomes: Does he go back to college football? Or is Jacksonville going to consider hiring him?
One wonders … this comes a day after Colin Kaepernick won a locker room award. Hmmmm. The owner clearly doesn’t want Kaepernick around, and maybe Kelly did? We know Baalke didn’t.
