Chip Kelly To Alabama Rumors Are Heating Up On Twitter

Chip Kelly speaking as the head coach of the 49ers.

With Alabama OC Steve Sarkisian leaving to take over play-calling for the Atlanta Falcons, could Chip Kelly end up in Tuscaloosa?

Alabama offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian will be calling plays for the Atlanta Falcons next year, leaving a huge hole at OC for the Crimson Tide. And at the moment, Twitter is buzzing with rumors that Chip Kelly is the most likely target to fill the role, though it's mostly conjecture at this point.

Check it out:

Kelly and Saban definitely have history. Saban considers Kelly a "good friend," and Kelly made a visit to Alabama last January, but that's all we really have to go on at the moment. After all, would there even be enough room in Tuscaloosa for two egos of that size?

Kelly is currently out of a job after being fired following the 49ers 2016 regular season.
