Adam Schefter thinks Chip Kelly won't end up with an NFL head coaching job

Is Chip's time in the NFL done?

Chip Kelly hasn't exactly received a lot of interest since being fired by the Philadelphia Eagles. His only reported interview was with the San Francisco 49ers, and that's likely because former Eagles personnel executive Tom Gamble is there. It was also reported that Kelly first reached out to San Francisco and not the other way around. Shortly after Kelly was fired, NFL insider Jason Cole reported multiple owners felt like Kelly was begging for a new job. In an interview with the 97.5 The Fanatic Morning Show on Wednesday, Adam Schefter suggested Kelly's time in the NFL might be over (for now, at least).

"Listen, he’s interviewed there, and you know Tom Gamble would like to see that get done there in San Francisco, [but] I don’t believe Chip Kelly is going to wind up with a head coaching job in the NFL in this offseason period here," Schefter said. "I think San Francisco is going to go in a different direction. Where else have Chip interviewed? That’s it, right? No, I don’t think he’s going to get that job. I don’t think he’s going to be the guy in Tennessee either."

The Titans' lack of interest Kelly is especially telling considering how they have his former star quarterback, Marcus Mariota. One would think Tennessee would be interested in pairing those two back together, but there's been no strong indication that's what's going to happen.

There's been some talk among fans and media alike that the Eagles may have given up on Kelly too soon. But the fact that Kelly might not be able to get another coaching job despite going 26-21 in his first three seasons could suggest the Eagles made the right decision all along.
