Did Jeff Garcia just throw his name out there for 49ers head coach?

Dec 31, 2016 at 8:58 PM--


It was reported earlier tonight that the San Francisco 49ers are expected to part ways with both general manager Trent Baalke and head coach Chip Kelly. Who will replace the duo is anyone's guess at this point. However, one former 49ers Pro Bowl quarterback is throwing his name out there to show that he would be interested in helping helm the ship. No, it isn't Joe Montana. No, it isn't Steve Young either. It's Jeff Garcia.

"You want fire, passion & knowledge, I have it all & an experienced staff to back me," the 4-time Pro Bowl quarterback Tweeted out tonight. Is he serious? Knowing Garcia, probably.


In November, Garcia expressed interest in the then-vacant head coach vacancy at San Jose State. That job was given to former Oregon State receivers coach Brent Brennan in December.

Since ending his pro football career in 2010, Garcia has tutored several quarterbacks, been a CFL assistant coach, and briefly served as an NFL assistant with the then-St. Louis Rams in 2015. He has made it well known that he would be interested in coaching.

Following five seasons with the Calgary Stampeders, Garcia joined the 49ers in 1999 and was to be Steve Young's backup until the Hall of Fame quarterback retired following a concussion. Garcia became the starting quarterback and remained with San Francisco through the 2003 season. After that, he spent time with the Cleveland Browns, Detroit Lions, Philadelphia Eagles, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Being a San Francisco 49ers site, we don't typically report on the happenings around the rest of the NFL that don't potentially impact the Bay Area team. This story, however, has been 87 years in the making. The NFL team representing Washington, D.C., may finally drop "Redskins" from its name, which has long been viewed as offensive. We live in a new world where awareness and compassion seem to be on the rise, and offensive icons like the Washington team name may be on the way out.

San Francisco 49ers running back Raheem Mostert has requested a trade, citing unproductive contract talks as the reason. While he isn't scheduled to become a free agent until 2022, he will earn a base salary of just $2.575 million this year. Don't expect such a demand to come from All-Pro tight end George Kittle anytime soon. Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area this week said he wouldn't be surprised if Kittle's agent told the tight end to hold out for a contract extension. It doesn't even sound like that will happen. "Being a captain, I want to
