The San Francisco 49ers have hired Chip Kelly as their next head coach of the team.

The announcement was made by CEO of the team Jed York on Twitter.

The hiring of Kelly to the 49ers makes sense for two reasons:

1. Kelly reunites with former Eagles vice president of player personnel in Tom Gamble.

2. The 49ers are stuck with a dilemma on high priced quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
