The 49ers are adding former defensive lineman Aubrayo Franklin to an entry level position on the defensive staff. Franklin is expected to be an assistant on the defensive line.

For those not familiar with Franklin, he played for coach Jim Tomsula from 2007 to 2010 while Tomsula was the team’s defensive line coach.

Not long after announcing Tony Sparano as tight ends coach, the 49ers made another coaching move today by filling their defensive coordinator position with former Jets/Browns HC and 49ers tight ends coach Eric Mangini.

Now we wait for the offensive coordinator…

The 49ers have filled another position on Jim Tomsula’s coaching staff.

The 49ers have hired former Raiders interim head coach Tony Sparano to fill that position.

The 49ers still have not filled the key positions of defensive or offensive coordinators, but I’m sure those will be filled shortly.

The 49ers do not yet have an offensive coordinator or a defensive coordinator, but they do have a special teams coach. The 49ers are expected to hire Jets special teams coach Thomas McGaughey.

Tomsula and McGaughey worked together on the staff with the Scottish Claymores in NFL Europe in 2002. More on McGaughey from Eric Branch…

In 2014, McGaughey’s lone season with the Jets, New York ranked eighth in the NFL in kickoff-return coverage (21.8 yards) and 26th in covering punts (10.0). The 49ers ranked 11th and 20th, respectively, in those categories. The Jets also ranked 21st in kickoff-return average (23.1) and 32nd in punt returns (6.3). The 49ers ranked eighth and 31st, respectively in those categories.

McGaughey was LSU’s special-teams coach from 2011-13, which was preceded by stints as an assistant special-teams coach with the Giants (2007-10), Broncos (2005-06) and Chiefs (2002). He was the special-teams coach at the University of Houston, his alma mater, from 2003-04.

Yesterday after the announcement of Jim Tomsula getting the head coaching gig, Alex Marvez of Fox Sports reported that the 49ers would part ways with their entire coaching staff, minus running backs coach Tom Rathman. This means that coveted defensive coordinator Vic Fangio is free to coach where he wants.


Today it has become official. Dianna Maria Russini of NBC4 in DC is the first person I saw that said it happened. She reports that GM Trent Baalke contacted them all last night and told them that Head Coach Jim Tomsula is going in a different direction.


No official word on who will start filling in the empty spaces, but two names that have surfaced are Jason Tarver for defensive coordinator and Marc Trestman for offensive coordinator. Now we wait.

49ers ask permission to interview Bowles and Quinn http://49ersnews.com/2014/12/49ers-ask-permission-interview-bowles-quinn/ http://49ersnews.com/2014/12/49ers-ask-permission-interview-bowles-quinn/#comments Mon, 29 Dec 2014 19:18:22 +0000 http://49ersnews.com/?p=9167 The 49ers have requested permission to interview Todd Bowles, Dan Quinn and Adam Gase..

According to Josina Anderson of ESPN the 49ers have requested permission to interview Cardinals defensive coordinator Todd Bowles and Seahawks defensive coordinator Dan Quinn. Along with Bowles and Quinn, they also have inquired about Broncos offensive coordinator Adam Gase and the Browns media is reporting some interest in Kyle Shanahan.

The 49ers could interview Quinn this week as the Seahawks have a bye, but they would have to wait until after the Cardinals playoff run is over to interview Bowles.

Along with Bowles and Quinn, expect interviews with in house candidates Jim Tomsula and Vic Fangio.

If you remember Quinn was the defensive line coach with the 49ers during the 2003-04 season. Adam Gase also has connections with the 49ers, he was an offensive assistant during the 2008 season.

My thoughts are if they go the defensive coordinator route, no point in going with Bowles or Quinn, you already have two coaches in Tomsula and Fangio already familiar with the team.

Even though it isn’t officially official the Harbaugh era has come to a close. The 49ers beat the Cardinals to finish 8-8 and ended Harbaugh run with a Win.

Who would have thought that Craig Dahl would have been Harbaugh’s hero by intercepting Ryan Lindley to ice the game.

Frank Gore who is set to become a free agent may have finished his 49ers career with 144 yards rushing and moved over 11,000 rushing for his career.

Now we wait, this offseason will see lots of change. New coach and lots new faces on both sides of the ball.
