If Roman Leaves, how about Chud?

Rathman was also a high candidate when Harbaugh was originally selecting his staff. He maybe a candidate for oc if we happen to loose Roman an other offensive choaches.

Don't buy Rathman as a candidate for OC at all. He's been a good position coach and he's been doing it for a LONG time now, if it hasn't happened already, I don't see it happening now. There's nothing wrong with being a good position coach either. I'd hire Singletary to coach LB's or be a motivational speaker, never to be a DC.

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 would say a shocker here........Tom Rathman, I would use this period as a time to start bringing in the former players from the Walsh era like Jerry Rice, Ronnie Lott, Joe Montana and other former players to become position and coordinator positions, eventually to become head coach. Can one imagine Joe Montana as the head coach? wow, that would be cool.

Being a great player doesn't mean you're likely to be a great coach. Look up Mike Singletary for further details on that. I doubt most of these guys have any interest in being involved in any sort of formal coaching position as well.
What the Chud

stop it. this has been rehashed to death. great players do not make great head coaches , this is just emotional blather and why on earth is there such a clammer to bring back x niners to this team? montana and lott would make bad coaches and they would quit in a year. they think everyone should play the game like they did(which is a reason why bob gibson was a awful pitching coach for the braves as he could not stand the fact todays players lacked his intensity ) their brains do not work the same way. there is no reason to bring in x niners . why? to bring back the glory days?? please. its no longer their team and their time. montana as a head coach is just laughable in my opinion,

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.

You're contradicting yourself there. Also, there's no way that there's no way we wouldn't bring an outsider on. It's absolutely in the realm of possibility.


My point was that it would be someone with a history in the Harbaugh system...thats why they could go to Stanford.

We don't need a QB developer out of our OC. Harbaugh is king of QB developers and Chryst can complement him. Our OC just needs to be a great play-caller with run-game/blocking scheme creativity like Roman.

roman and great play caller do not belong in the same sentence in my opinion

You're contradicting yourself there. Also, there's no way that there's no way we wouldn't bring an outsider on. It's absolutely in the realm of possibility.

It's certainly possible, but less likely when you have an offensive HC. They tend to promote within, or hire someone who already has familiarity running their scheme. Defensive HCs are typically not married to any offensive scheme, nor have the expertise on that side of the ball, which is why you see so many of them cycle through coordinators of all backgrounds before finding the right fit.

Hiring someone from the Stanford staff would not be a contradiction, because they obviously run Harbaugh's scheme. Hiring a complete outsider would require the new OC to scrap much of what he did in the past, and adjust to a new philosophy. That doesn't happen often, which is why the Kelly-Shurmur pairing was so unique. It's the exception, not the rule.

Exactly. I'm glad someone understood my point.

Pep Hamilton might have been good, but he's in Indy now.

BTW, I'm not sying the OC SHOULD be Chryst. I'm saying its very possible it WILL be Chryst. Harbaugh has known Roman will get another job for some time. He won't be caught flat-footed. I'm sure he has a plan and I'm pretty sure he probably already has his next guy on his staff already. Could be Cryst. Could be Morton. I thought it might be Drevno, but he's already got another job.

This isn't a Hostler reboot. Nolan panicked because they lost Norv late in the process. Harbaugh won't panic. He's known this was a possibility for a long time. A big reason why Harbaugh was hired was because he was an offensive coach. The team was tired of learning a new offense every single year. Harbaugh brought stability to the offensive side of the ball and they WILL NOT change that in order to bring in Norv Turner. Not gonna happen.

It will be a guy on the staff, a guy from Stanford, or someone he's worked with in the past. Count on it.

At this point though, Roman might stay...especially if the Niners keep winning.

One game. He's gonna be 75 years old, no way he gets back into coaching.

The 'like Roman' reference was in regards to the run game/blocking scheme creativity which he's shown to be great at.

I think it's all a toss up and no fan has any idea what the hell Harbaugh has in mind. It could very well be a promotion from within, it could very well be an outsider. I'm by no means on any sort of Norv Turner bandwagon, but hypothetically if we did hire Turner, it wouldn't be our offense adjusting to what Turner wants to do, it would be Turner adjusting to what we want to do.
