San Francisco 49ers Owe $69 million To The Coaches They’ve Fired
The San Francisco 49ers tumultuous season came to an end finally on Sunday, complete with yet another loss to cap off their 2-14 campaign. Literally an hour after the game, the team fired head coach Chip Kelly after just one year.
Despite firing their coaches from each of the past two seasons, the team will be shelling out roughly $69 million for them to stay away, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Adam Schefter just said the 49ers owe $69 million to Chip Kelly, the previous head coaches and assistant coaches.

After one year on the job, Chip Kelly was fired. The year before that, Jim Tomsula suffered the same fate after just one season. The year before that, Jim Harbaugh was shown the door, but at least he lasted 4 years and they were quite successful under him.
“Tomsula signed a four-year, $14 million deal with the 49ers, so they’re still on the hook for $7 million to him.
Kelly signed a four-year, $24 million deal with the 49ers last year, so he’s still owed three years of that, roughly $18 million.”
Kelly will be paid a bunch of money in 2017 to not coach an NFL team. He’s also due $6.5 million from the Eagles, who fired him following the 2015 season, just two years into his five-year deal.
