The 49ers weren’t done making changes as they have also fired their general manager Trent Baalke.

San Francisco will have their 4th new head coach in 4 seasons (Jim Harbaugh, Jim Tomsula, Chip Kelly). The 49ers finished the 2016 season with a horrific 2-14 season. The firing of Kelly comes as little surprise considering the 49ers has their worst season in franchise history. It’s probably time for Kelly to go back to college as he has shown he is not willing to adapt his playcalling becoming way too predictable for opposing defenses.
The 49ers will hold the 2nd pick in the 2017 NFL Draft with the chance to rebuild one of the worst rosters in the league. Baalke basically fired himself when he decided to fire Jim Harbaugh 3 years ago.
