Former Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly interviewed with the San Francisco 49ers about their head-coaching vacancy, CSNBayArea.com reported Thursday night.
The 49ers fired Jim Tomsula on Sunday after he posted a 5-11 record in his lone season on the job.
The Eagles fired Kelly with one week remaining in the season. He had a 26-21 mark in three seasons with the Eagles after signing a five-year, $32.5 million contract to leave the University of Oregon in 2013.
Kelly, 52, posted 10-win seasons in his first two years in Philadelphia before when the team was 6-9 last month. He took over player-personnel duties ahead of the 2015 season, and his string of moves -- including replacing running back LeSean McCoy with DeMarco Murray and replacing quarterback Nick Foles with Sam Bradford -- came in for frequent criticism.
In four seasons as head coach at Oregon, Kelly led the Ducks to double-digits wins each year and a 46-7 record overall.
