Chip Kelly has not had any discussions with ownership about job security

Nov 21, 2016 at 12:21 PM--


San Francisco 49ers head coach Chip Kelly met with the media today and discussed his future with the team. In January, team CEO Jed York was asked if he would fire Kelly should the team underperform. "Chip's going to be here for a long time, period," York said.

Kelly was asked if he has gotten any assurances from York that he would be with the team next season. "No," he answered. "We haven't had any conversations about that at all. About anybody's job security."

Kelly was then asked if he fully expected to be with the team next year. He responded to the reporter by asking, "Do you?" The reporter said that he hoped so and that he has a performance review coming in December. "That makes two of us," Kelly responded. "We're all in the same boat."

The 49ers are 1-9 this season and riding a franchise tying nine-game losing streak. The last time the 49ers lost nine straight was in 1978 and Kelly has become the first single coach to do it. In 1978, the nine straight losses were between two coaches. The team has never lost 10 straight in its history.

San Francisco 49ers linebacker Dre Greenlaw is on track to be activated from injured reserve after having his practice window opened last week.

Ford did not practice during Wednesday's session but is expected to do so on Thursday. He's been on injured reserve since November 6 due to a back injury. Greenlaw underwent core muscle surgery and has been on injured reserve since September 18. "Greenlaw did a good job out there today," Shanahan said during KNBR's Tolbert, Krueger & Brooks show. "He'll go meet with the trainers now and tell them how it felt and stuff. Dee, we don't want to put

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo entered Week 11, needing just 22 yards to reach 10,000 career passing yards.

The quarterback entered this weekend, having passed for 9,288 yards during his time with San Francisco. He had 690 passing yards in three years with the New England Patriots before joining the Niners. San Francisco is 4-5 and seeks to get to .500 with a win against the 2-7 Jaguars. In addition to his passing-yards total, Garoppolo has 61 touchdowns, 31 interceptions, and a passer rating of 98.6 over his eight NFL



Albert Breer not buying that the 49ers are considering keeping Jimmy Garoppolo for 2022

Head coach Kyle Shanahan stated this week that he's not willing to close the door on the possibility that quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo will return to the San Francisco 49ers in 2022. Naturally, that led to headlines stating that Garoppolo might return next season when most figured the team would transition to Trey Lance by then. Of course, that wasn't exactly what Shanahan stated. "I think there's a chance for anything," Shanahan said on Wednesday when asked about Garoppolo's future. The coach went on to reiterate that Lance is the team's future. The timeline, however, remains up in the air, especially with Garoppolo playing at an impressive level over the last
