49ers hire Brad Seely as ST Coordinator!

BEREA -- A Browns sourced confirmed to The Plain Dealer that special teams coordinator Brad Seely has left the team.
The Browns offered to retain Seely but agreed not to block him from leaving.
Under Seely, the Browns' special teams were ranked No. 1 overall in 2009 in the formula devised by Dallas Morning News football writer Rick Gosselin that includes 22 statistical categories. They dropped from that perch in 2010, but still were in the top third of the NFL.
As assistant head coach to Eric Mangini, Seely enjoyed substantial influence on the makeup of the team's final roster. Seely was able to bolster his units with several players who specialized in kicking games.
Seely was rumored to be talking with the San Francisco 49ers, but the club has made no announcement.

Brad Seely named 49ers special teams coach.
This appears to be a good hire. However, if the 49ers are to improve their overall special teams play, they must add speed to the roster. Speed should always be the tie-breaker in drafting. After the late 3rd round in most cases, players selected are situational players/ST possibilities. Those guys need to be fast. Right now, the 49ers have a few starters that have good speed but overall, the single most lacking component is speed. This team needs to add speed all over the lineup.
Terrific hire!!!!!!

Does this mean that Delanie Walker isn't gonna be returning kicks anymore? We were the only team in the league who had their tight end return kicks.
Outstanding upgrade.

49ers Catch League's Best Special Team's Coach: Report By SAJID FAROOQ

NFL Jim Harbaugh has been really busy over the last week adding coaches to his 49ers' staff.

But if reports are true, the new head coach may have pulled off his biggest coup of the off season.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer is reporting that the Browns' assistant head coach and special teams coordinator Brad Seely has joined the 49ers. Other reports have Seely simply talking with Harbaugh with no official deal done.

Now normally netting someone from the Browns is nothing to celebrate but Seely was in charge of one of the league's best special teams units last year. He has also been integral in the development of one of football's most dynamic return men, Joshua Cribbs.

In fact the Sacramento Bee's Matt Barrows reports that Seely's unit was recently rated the best special teams unit in the league.

The 49ers have notoriously struggled over the past two years with their special teams coverage and return game.

Last season the team traded for speedy return man Ted Ginn Jr. and while the return game improved over the previous season, the team's coverage still left a lot to be desired.

If the 49ers do add Seely, Harbaugh would be adding another experienced NFL coach to his staff. Seely has 22 years of NFL coaching experience.
