Eagles vs. Rams

The San Francisco 49ers have announced that Chip Kelly will be their new head coach, becoming the 20th head coach in franchise history.

"Chip Kelly joins the 49ers with 26 seasons of coaching experience at both the NFL and collegiate levels, including the past three seasons as head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles. Before joining the Eagles, Kelly served as the head coach at the University of Oregon (2009-12) after spending the previous two seasons as the team’s offensive coordinator (2007-08). Prior to joining Oregon, Kelly was the offensive coordinator at the University of New Hampshire (1999-2006)."

It'll be interesting to see how well he does over on the West Coast. The situation with the Eagles was quite a disaster but, we wish him luck and maybe he will get some luck like Andy Reid did.
