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.

Jimmy Garoppolo played his first three-and-a-half NFL seasons with the New England Patriots under coach Bill Belichick. The Patriots traded him to the San Francisco 49ers in 2017. Garoppolo became the starter for the 49ers, signed a five-year contract during the ensuing offseason, and last season led the team to a Super Bowl appearance. Belichick, while speaking with 49ers reporters via a conference call on Monday, was asked what he's seen from Garoppolo's development since the trade. "Well, we haven't played him since then," Belichick responded. "I haven't really studied him, but we'll take a close look. But I mean, it just looks like about what I thought it would like. I mean, he's a quality player. The 49ers gave him a high contract that, you

Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo joined KNBR on Wednesday morning as the San Francisco 49ers prepare to head on the road to face his former squad, the New England Patriots. Garoppolo spent his first three-and-a-half NFL seasons there learning behind future Hall of Famer Tom Brady under the tutelage of Bill Belichick. The Patriots head coach spoke with 49ers reporters on Monday and praised Garoppolo. "I mean, he's a quality player," Belichick said on a conference call. "The 49ers gave him a high contract that, you know, reflected their confidence in him going forward to lead their team, won the NFC Championship last year behind him. So, I think that all speaks for itself." During Wednesday's radio interview, Garoppolo was asked about Belichick's comments

Kyle Shanahan still has confidence in Trent Taylor, explains reduced opportunities

Trent Taylor was a training camp star for the San Francisco 49ers in August. That hasn't carried over into the regular season for the fourth-year wide receiver. Taylor has just six receptions for 45 yards through seven games this season. He's hauled in just one reception for eight yards since Week 3. Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters today and was asked about Taylor's reduced production. The coach explained that the team still has faith in the receiver, but other factors have produced fewer opportunities. Shanahan made it clear, though, that Taylor is not dealing with an injury, as was the case over the last two seasons. "Yeah, Trent is healthy," Shanahan said. "I definitely could find more ways to [get him more involved in the offense]. I've got a
