San Francisco 49ers general manager Trent Baalke was reportedly told on Friday that he would not be back with the team in 2017. That courtesy was not extended toward head coach Chip Kelly, who the team reportedly also plans to let go after just one season with the team.

Mike Silver of NFL Network is reporting that Kelly actually called 49ers CEO Jed York last night following reports of his impending firing. "It was not a warm and fuzzy conversation," Silver said.


Kelly has a meeting with ownership following the 49ers finale this afternoon against the Seattle Seahawks at Levi's Stadium. Kelly likely already knows his fate and the meeting may simply me a formality.

Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that players have not yet been informed of Kelly's future. The team remains focused on today's game.

Regardless, the 49ers will move on to their third head coach search in as many years. An official announcement regarding Baalke and Kelly is expected following the game against Seattle.

Kansas City Chiefs defensive backs coach Dave Merritt clearly has no qualms about speaking his mind. He is a candidate to replace former San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator Steve Wilks, who was fired following the team's Super Bowl defeat against the Chiefs. Wilks spent just one season with the 49ers. Merritt recently participated in a radio interview on "The Sports Show" and attributed at least part of the blame for San Francisco's crushing defeat to head coach Kyle Shanahan's offense. "Their offense went 3-for-12 on third down," Merritt said, per Niners Wire. "Our offense went 9-for-19, but if your offense

Losing Dre Greenlaw during the Super Bowl was a blow to the San Francisco 49ers, not just because of his on-field impact but also for the leadership he brings to the defense. "Dre's the heartbeat of our defense, him and [LB] Fred [Warner] in there, and how they feed off each other," tight end George Kittle said after the Super Bowl loss. "... We lose a guy like Dre, it's tough. He's just such a fantastic football player, and he's everything that the Niners stand for." Greenlaw tore his Achilles in the second quarter of the game, a devastating outcome for a player who battled through multiple injuries during the season, ranging from ankle, hamstring, shoulder, and hip issues.

However, Kiper has the team going in another direction. He proposes adding a pass rusher to complement defensive end Nick Bosa on the opposite side. Kiper's pick for San Francisco is Chop Robinson of Penn State. Kiper wrote, "It has to be offensive line or edge rusher for the 49ers, right? They need to find
