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.
