Adam Schefter reports the 49ers have dumped Chip Kelly after giving the former Eagles and Oregon head coach less than a year on the job. San Francisco went 2-14 this season, showing little competence along the way. The dismissal comes hours after the team fired GM Trent Baalke, and throws an already-chaotic organization into even more disarray. Congratulations, northern Californians: you officially have your own Browns—just without the #1 overall draft pick.
