I though maybe Drevno before he left, but perhaps Chryst. They might look at the Stanford staff as well.
Norv? Seriously? Not gonna happen.
I agree with you on this one with the caveat being there is someone appropriately qualified. You don't promote for the sake of promoting, but it has to be recognized that the 49ers offense isn't good solely because of Greg Roman alone. You better believe offensive assistants will have had input in creating the playbook as well as the game by game strategy sessions and team preparation.
We have seen the impact of changing coordinators can have on a young QB - See: Smith, Alex - and will want to continue with the current system. Our offensive system is relatively distinct, it is part of Harbaugh's identity and I see the 49ers building a stable of guys who build off the work Roman led.
The 49ers have known this was coming for some time, so I'm sure they have a plan. That's kinda why I think they restricted Donatell from moving...I case they lose Fangio.
The point I'm making tho is they hired Harbaugh specifically so they wouldn't have a different offensive system every year. If peeps think they are going to flip from the West Coast based system to the numbers/Coryell system that Norv runs they are sorely mistaken.
