Chip Kelly is set to interview for the Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator job after Kyle Shanahan is expected to bolt for the San Francisco 49ers’ head coaching gig after their season is over, per Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer.

Reports earlier in the week noted Kelly was expected to visit Bill Belichick with the New England Patriots.

Kelly has racked up a 28-35 record in four years in the NFL. He’s been to the playoffs once (2013) with the Eagles and single-handedly dismantled what was a playoff roster in Philly.

Shanahan has helped spread the Atlanta offense, developing play-makers behind Julio Jones in wideout Taylor Gabriel and running backs Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman.

Kelly has coached since 1990, but had his most success at Oregon, where he was the offensive coordinator from 2007-08 before taking the head coaching position from 2009-2012.
