If Roman Leaves, how about Chud?

I've been thinking about this for a while, and I wanted to get the opinion of others here. If Roman leaves for Penn St. or another HC job, would the Niners look at Chudzinski to fill the OC role? His work with the Panthers and Newton would closely mirror the situation here with Kaepernick - both are teams built around Defense and the running game and a QB who is more Athlete/thrower than pocket passer. By all accounts, Chud is a terrific guy to work with and an smart offensive mind. He also got a career year out of Derek Anderson when he was OC of the Browns in 07.

What do people think of Chud as OC?
I heard the players in Carolina hated him. Chud is also a guy who would be on the head coach radar as soon as he had any success. Bring back Norv, unleash the Kaepernick.
Why would you wish such a horror on our team?

2 out of 5 years as either an OC or HC he was 27th or worse in scoring offense. As an OC: In 2007 Browns were 8th in points, in 2008 they were 30th. In Carolina they were 5th in points in 2011, in 2012 they were 18th.

You guys are nuts.

If Roman leaves the replacement OC is already on the staff. They are NOT going to bring in a whole new system because its Harbaughs system to begin with.

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.

Geep Chryst has a similar resume in San Diego ... look at when he took over and then after he left. Stunning.

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.

Going from Ryan Leaf to Doug Flutie accounts for the chance.

That isn't all on Geep. 1999-2000 was still the disastrous Ryan Leaf era. Even the best minds in the entire history of football couldn't find a way to make it work with that dirtbag as their #2 overall franchise pick and being forced to start him as the GM and HC who drafted him are trying to save their jobs.
Chryst or Morton will be promoted to OC. Bill Musgrave hired as QB's coach. Remember that
Norv Turner runs a completely differen't system-offense than what Harbaugh likes. Makes no sense. This isn't fantasy coaching.
