There's another suitor in the Chip Kelly sweepstakes. The San Francisco 49ers are expected to be interested in the former Philadelphia Eagles head coach, according to reports from NFL insider Jason La Canfora.

Now that the 49ers officially have a vacancy, Kelly could be a favorite to replace Tomsula. Kelly has a good relationship with 49ers senior personnel executive Tom Gamble, whom was fired by Philadelphia last offseason. Kelly originally brought Gamble to Philly to be his hand picked personnel guy.

The 49ers are just one of many teams rumored to be interested in Kelly. The Browns, Dolphins, and Titans have also been mentioned.
