Don't count Darren Sproles among the Chip Kelly haters -- the Eagles running back tells TMZ Sports he enjoyed his time with the coach ... and says the 49ers will too!
Kelly obviously has a lot of critics -- including former Eagles LeSean McCoy and DeSean Jackson ... who ripped Chip after they were shipped out of Philly.
But Sproles -- who just returned from the Pro Bowl -- vouched for the guy.
We also asked Darren who he's rooting for in the Super Bowl. Check out the clip ... gotta give the credit for being honest!
