Mike Shanahan dines during SF Chevy’s and other 49ers coaching-search items

First, a news of a morning: Mike Shanahan dines during Chevy’s.

According to a KPIX viewer, a former Broncos conduct manager was seen dining during a San Francisco Chevy’s during 3:30 p.m. Sunday. The 49ers interviewed Shanahan Thursday in Denver and were scheduled to talk ex-Jets conduct manager Rex Ryan on Sunday, according to reports.

A probable reason for Shanahan’s participation (wearing a suit) in a San Francisco eatery: NBC 4 in Washington, D.C. reports that he also has interviewed with a Raiders, that could prompt a Battle of a Bay for his services. Shanahan coached a Los Angeles Raiders from 1988-89, a army noted by debate and confrontation. He roughly immediately clashed with then-owner Al Davis and was dismissed 4 weeks into a 1989 season. He reportedly also is on a Buffalo Bills’ radar as distant as their head-coach vacancy.

The 49ers can't sinecure a conduct manager until they talk a minority candidate. They have asked to pronounce with a span of defensive coordinators, Arizona’s Todd Bowles and Detroit’s Teryl Austin. Those meetings were still being arranged, and a initial devise for Bowles, during least, was to start interviewing with east-coast teams and work his approach west. That means a 49ers would not accommodate with him until mid-week during a earliest.

Austin is scheduled to accommodate with a 49ers on Thursday, NFL Network reported.


A series of we have asked that assistants a head-coaching possibilities competence pierce in. Matt Maiocco mentioned a few here.

That’s a good list, generally a Cowboys’ Scott Linehan, whom a 49ers followed in 2009 and who wisely foresaw Mike Singletary’s regime attack a embankment and opted not to come aboard. Linehan also has been a conduct coach, that is poignant because, underneath Vic Fangio or even Jim Tomsula, a descent coordinator would have grant blanch to run a offense (like Fangio had with a defense). Five of a descent coordinators in a playoffs are former conduct coaches.

One name to supplement should Fangio turn conduct manager — former Browns manager Rob Chudzinski, who is a former descent coordinator. Chudzinksi shares an representative with Fangio. He also was Frank Gore’s descent coordinator during a University of Miami. The 49ers are perplexing to remonstrate Gore to pointer a agreement prolongation — dual years — with them.

The other approach a 49ers could go, of course, is with Shanahan as conduct coach. The 49ers have not had an talk with his son, Kyle Shanahan, who served as his father’s descent coordinator in Washington. Kyle is a stream descent coordinator in Cleveland. Would he be means to make a parallel pierce if his pops becomes conduct manager here? That customarily doesn’t occur though could if a younger Shanahan creates it transparent he doesn’t wish to be in Cleveland.


As distant as defensive coordinators … Fangio would make delegate manager Ed Donatell his defensive coordinator if he gets a tip job. Reports from Maiocco and Tim Kawakami advise that Tomsula competence pierce in Raiders defensive coordinator Jason Tarver, with whom he’s worked in a past, should he get a tip job. If Tomsula is done conduct coach, Fangio would leave. If Tomsula done Tarver defensive coordinator, Donatell expected would wish out as well.

While Fangio was a team’s initial interview, Tomsula has not been interviewed yet. Is that significant? Maybe it is. Or maybe Tomsula is such a famous apportion to Jed York et al. — he’s already been a team’s halt conduct coach, despite quickly in 2010 — that he doesn’t need an endless interview.


Meanwhile in Seattle, former Packers and Seahawks manager Mike Holmgren told KJR Radio that he competence have been meddlesome in a 49ers’ pursuit though that a group hasn’t contacted him. He pronounced he’s motionless he’s by with coaching.
