That was until Monday, when Kelly was asked if he was given any assurance from CEO of the 49ers, Jed York. His answer gave some clarity to the position after a dreadful 1-9 start.

“No,” he said. “We haven’t had any conversations about that at all. About anybody’s job security.”

We’ve heard plenty of coaches getting the vote of confidence in recent weeks, but Kelly seems to be on the outside looking in.

Could Kelly return to his roots at the University of Oregon? Reports seem to hint that way, but only time will tell.
