Trent Baalke confirms that he's out in San Francisco

Trent Baalke confirms that he's out in San Francisco

Both ESPN's Adam Schefter and NFL Media's Ian Rapoport say the 49ers are expected to fire Kelly and GM Trent Baalke after the season.

What is still unknown is if head coach Chip Kelly will follow Baalke out the door or if that decision will be left to whoever takes the reigns as general manager at Levi's Stadium. "This is a class organization", Baalke, who had been with the 49ers for 12 years, told the radio station. Tomsula was sacked after going 5-11 in his only season as the team turned to Kelly.

The 49ers' search for Harbaugh's replacement wasn't exactly aggressive as the team promoted defensive line coach Jim Tomsula to the head coaching position.

Kelly, a native of Dover, New Hampshire, made his name at the University of OR where he posted a 46-7 record, including 2-2 in Bowl Games.

Nearly a year ago to the day, the Philadelphia Eagles dismissed head coach Chip Kelly, just before finishing his third season with the club.

The 2016 season was just Kelly's fourth in the National Football League, coming from a three year try in Philadelphia. San Francisco (2-13) can tie the franchise record for losses in a season if the Seahawks win their game Sunday afternoon. That included three NFC Championship Game appearances and one failed fourth-down conversion from winning a Super Bowl.

This was likely Kelly's last opportunity to coach in the NFL. Seattle faced the Los Angeles Rams back in Week 15 just days after the team fired head coach Jeff Fisher.
