I think they're good coaches. Harbaugh wouldn't tolerate sub-par coaching on his staff.
Mangini is well respected around the league and has experience coaching both sides of the ball.
Morton is a decent coach. The WRs who failed here failed because they sucked. The WR coach can only do so much.
He would in Morton's case. Morton is one of his closest friends, Harbaugh actually lived with Morton following his divorce from his first wife. I'm not at all impressed with Morton. Either our WRs can play or they can't, but he hasn't come close to developing one. No coach should survive a year that was as abject a failure at a position as the one our WRs suffered through last year. Almost every other team has gotten recent production from late-round picks or UDFAs. We got absolutely nothing last year.
True, but what has he had to develop? Kyle Williams, A.J. Jenkins, Marlon Moore, Ronald Johnson...???
Notice how none of those guys have done anything since leaving the 49ers either. They're scrubs. Can't develop trash.
Patton and Ellington seem legit though. If he can't develop those guys than I will hold him accountable.
