Chip Kelly was formally introduced to the Bay Area media contingent and the Forty-Niners Faithful today. Kelly stuck to the script by acknowledging the Walsh legend and the need to return this proud franchise to Super Bowl contention.
For the most part Chip Kelly didn’t reveal any secrets but he did answer all questions in an articular manner, something missing 12 months ago. Trent Baalke definitely took backstage to the new head coach only answering a few questions when asked.
Chip stayed away from a few bating or leading question and made sure he did not reveal any thoughts or strategies around the quarterback situation especially with regard to Colin Kaepernick. He also didn’t elaborate on his issues with the Eagles and their owner.
Now Chip starts his reign as 49ers head coach and is building a staff of competent assistants and evaluating the current roster to determine what is needed to compete in the NFC West next season. If nothing else it will be fun to watch Chip and the 49ers get ready for the 2016 season.
