The 49ers fired Chip Kelly on January 1. But it didn't take long for Kelly to get a job interview.
Between January 1 and January 9, when the Jaguars hired Doug Marrone, Jacksonville reportedly interviewed Kelly for the job.
The interview happened "very quietly" according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
The Jaguars had interviewed six known candidates: Marrone, Tom Coughlin, Harold Goodwin, Mike Smith, Kyle Shanahan and Josh McDaniels.
While the Jaguars hired Marrone and most other teams filled their head coaching vacancy, the 49ers are the lone team remaining without a head coach.
The leading candidates for the 49ers' job appear to be McDaniels and Shanahan. The 49ers interviewed Shanahan and McDaniels on Friday and Saturday, respectively, as their teams earned first-round playoff byes.
The 49ers are also scheduled to interview Seattle offensive line/assistant head coach Tom Cable on Sunday.
Three days after he was fired by the 49ers, Kelly addressed his next possible career move with CSNBayArea.com.
"I'm not going to close the door on any opportunity, but I have to be very smart in what I do next," he said. "I don't have to take anything, but I wouldn't rule anything out. I need to make sure that I'm in the right situation.
"I don't know what the future holds. I'll do my due diligence. I'm not going to coach just to coach."
