I have liked all of Harbaugh's hires, but this one has me most excited.
On offense, Harbaugh is surrounding himself with guys he's familiar with, but on D, he's focusing on building an experienced NFL staff (Tomsula, Donatell, Fangio)
Yep, I like his hires and the experience in his candidates.
From maiocco's blog...
The only outside names I've heard in direct connection to Harbaugh are offensive coach Marc Trestman, coach of the two-time defending Grey Cup champion Montreal Alouettes, and defensive coach Jim Leavitt, the former South Florida head coach. With Roman coming to the 49ers in such a prominent role, Trestman would not appear likely to leave his current situation.
Whether he lands Trestman and Leavitt or not, his candidate list definitely has been planned out in advance.
