Chip Kelly is not going to be the Oregon coach. Again.

In his first year with the 49ers after three-and-out in Philly, rumors of a return to college football already are percolating regarding Kelly, fueled by his 1-5 record. Meeting with reporters on Thursday, Kelly was asked whether he is committed to remaining in San Francisco.

“Unless the media has an opportunity for me somewhere, I’ll always explore those opportunities,” Kelly told reporters. “But, I’m not going anywhere.”

He may not be going anywhere, voluntarily. A full-blown free fall could, in theory, result in the 49ers making a change after only one season.
