Chip Kelly on return to college coaching: “I’m the coach of the San Francisco 49ers”

Oct 24, 2016 at 2:40 PM--


San Francisco 49ers head coach Chip Kelly met with the media today and was asked about the possibility of returning to coach at the college level.

Would he be interested in returning to college football? "No," Kelly said. "I'm the head coach of the San Francisco 49ers. I'm not looking at anything else."

"Yeah, I'm here," Kelly added when asked if he would remain with the team once the season is over. Kelly said he has not heard from any schools about head coaching possibilities.

Last week, Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reported that there would likely be a lot of Chip Kelly-back-to-college chatter starting in the coming weeks. "With his offense faltering in the pros and a poor roster, talk is he'll be looking," wrote La Canfora.

"Kelly's offense continues to be ridiculed by his peers in the NFL, and several coaches I spoke to expect him to hit the eject seat button after this season and return to college before his stock continues to drop given the horrible roster he has in San Francisco," La Canfora continued.

Jeff Wilson Jr. looks on track to start his first game since last season. Now a veteran in the running back room, Wilson is ready for whatever the San Francisco 49ers demand of him against the Jacksonville Jaguars this weekend. "Whatever they ask [of] me," Wilson said after Friday's practice. "That's been the thing since Day 1. So whatever you're called upon, that's what you're called upon to do. So, if that was the case, that's what I'll do. If it was for me to get only a couple of carries, be a blocker, then that's what I'll do. Whatever the task is, that's what I'll do." The 49ers figured on Wilson being a key contributor in the team's rushing attack this season. However, the running back underwent surgery in May to repair a torn meniscus. The injury didn't
