FOX Philadelphia's Howard Eskin reports 49ers DBs coach Ed Donatell is "likely" to be hired as Chip Kelly's defensive coordinator.
Eskin's report comes via "two NFL sources." CSN Philly reported Monday that Donatell had "surfaced" as a candidate. Donatell has seven years of experience as an NFL coordinator, but hasn't run a defense at the highest level since 2006. He served as the University of Washington's DC in 2008. Kelly is believed to be interested in installing a 3-4 defense, but Donatell is known for using a 4-3.
