Chip Kelly has funny comment about relationship with Bill Belichick
Bill Belichick and Chip Kelly have a friendly — dare we say close? — relationship that dates back several years. With the New England Patriots traveling to San Francisco to take on the 49ers this weekend, Kelly was asked about that relationship in a conference call on Wednesday.
He described it as perfectly as he could:
On conference call, 49ers coach Chip Kelly jokes about his connection to Bill Belichick. "We're Facebook friends," he says.

If Belichick didn’t once refer to social media as “Snapface,” we’d be inclined to believe that he is friends with Kelly on Facebook. But since The Hoodie has been known to lose his cool simply by trying to use a tablet, we’re guessing he’s never been on Facebook, Snapchat, Bookface, Tweeter, Instaface or whatever other gizmos and gadgets the kids use these days.
For evidence of Belichick’s friendship with Kelly, look no further than the comments Bill made after Kelly was fired by the Philadelphia Eagles. That was about as candid as you’ll ever hear the Pats coach get in terms of discussing another team’s business.
