I'd be very happy with Billick and Lewis as DC.
The man literally wrote a hell of a book on offensive game planning
You think things might be a little different in SF with a HC who actually likes QBs? Who actually knows how to develop an offensive gameplan?
Billick was loved here in Baltimore, still is. Of course that also meant he was roundly criticized for not being the offensive genius he was portrayed to be in Minnesota. The frustration with Billick and the offense seemed to grow year by year. The thing is the team never really had above average weapons to utilize. Jamal Lewis had some great years. But the offensive was mostly spare parts and their job was to control the clock and let the defense reign.
So...do I think Billick could turn SF into a magical super bowl contender? Nope. He didn't have any pixie dust in Baltimore for Kyle Boller. But I do think SF has more weapons than Baltimore ever had on offense. And whether Billick is the ultimate answer to turning this team around - he would dig it out of this MASSIVE hole that Singletary and Nolan dug.
Billick to me, is a professional, experienced, coach and leader. SF has not had this in a while. He could do a lot to bring this team back to respectability in the current NFL. And you think he might know a thing or two about player personnel and the draft? Working with Ozzie Newsome to have one of the universally recognized top front offices in football for past decade?
