No way on Norv. I think he does a good job, but there is no way Harbaugh is going to switch to a different nomenclature system, and there is no way Norv is going to suddenly convert to the WCO after decades in the digital system. 2 different languages, and 2 guys that do it their way.
Thats what I said. There is simply no way a "well known" coordinator comes to SF unless he fills the same space that Roman occupied as the "run game coordinator" as well as primary play caller and nothing more because we will never switch to a different system then what Harbaugh has implemented. We will be a team that promotes from within unless the circumstances make such a move nearly impossible.
Bringing in anybody like Norv, Shurmur, Mularkey, etc wont mean a thing besides possibly having someone who would simply be a better play caller in terms of timing and ability to avoid the "dumb play" which still falls on Harbaugh to some degree because all play calls are relayed through him. But I dont see anybody willingly "leaving their scheme behind" to join our staff.
