The niners need a west coast offense mind and theres no better than Andy Reid, and they would still run a power running game. The niners need to run a quicker passing game. Its what the true west coast is about.
Andy Reid is about to get hired as head coach of the Cardinals, I doubt he would turn that down to come and be an assistant with the 49ers.
Norv Turner doesn't run the West coast offense, but he could be good with Kaepernick. What I used to like with Norv Turner is when he ran the counter plays in the run offense with the line going right and frank taking a step or two right and coming back left. This is what we need to do with La Michael james. Norv can be a good coach but does he want to do the O-coordinator position again.
Also any coach coming in has to run their offense through a version west coast lense which we need to do to have continuity.
Norv doesn't have a choice, he's not going to be a head coach in the NFL again after failing 3 times already.
Geep Chyrst does have a few seasons as the O coordinator for the Chargers and Cardinals, but I think it would be tough to give Geep Chryst the O coordinator gig. I think the o Coordinator job is too important. Continuity on offense is really all the Niners need to take the team to the next level hopefully a continual playoff presence for a long time.
He had 2 seasons with the Chargers and their offense ranked among the worst in the NFL both years. Other than he's been a fairly good quarterbacks coach in the league but the fact that he's repeatedly been passed over for coordinator positions should be a warning sign.
