The San Francisco 49ers continue to disclaim interview opportunities for assistant coaches. Primarily the most original is huge receivers coach and passing sport coordinator Mike LaFleur. The crew told the Green Bay Packers, Cleveland Browns, and Minnesota Vikings they would perchance well no longer interview LaFleur, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter. The Packers hired LaFleur’s brother, Matt, to be head coach.
This news follows observe earlier this week that the 49ers shot down the Broncos query to interview quarterbacks coach Prosperous Scangarello, and a couple of requests for flee sport coordinator Mike McDaniel. Matt Maiocco tweeted that area coaches in general are on “rolling two-year provides.” All three of those assistants joined the 49ers in 2017 when Kyle Shanahan became as soon as hired.
I imagine most coaches one day desire a likelihood to advance. On the identical time, if Jimmy Garoppolo and Jerick McKinnon are wholesome in 2019, the stock for all three of those assistants may perchance well well continue to upward push. The offense ideally takes a broad step forward in 2019, and even supposing no longer all these assistants are straight away accountable, the proverbial rising tide lifts all boats.
Furthermore it is rate noting that customarily a crew will duvet for an assistant, pronouncing they are declining an interview when if truth be told the assistant does now not need the job and does now not need to decline it himself. No longer every promotion opportunity is an staunch one, and so this may perchance well well let a coach no longer gawk be pleased he’s turning his nose up at a job. We’ll seemingly never know for sure how grand that is the case for the 49ers assistants.
