It would appear Chip Kelly and the 49ers were suitably impressed with Houston Texans linebackers coach Mike Vrabel when they interviewed him yesterday. Dianna Russini is reporting that the 49ers have offered to make Vrabel their new defensive coordinator.

What, if anything, can or should the Texans do to keep Vrabel in Houston? More to come as soon as we know it.

UPDATE: Mike Vrabel decided staying in Houston was a better fit than moving to San Francisco to become a defensive coordinator. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
