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.

Why did ESPN and PFF name Jimmy Garoppolo as 49ers' bounce-back candidate for 2020?

By David Bonilla

Jimmy Garoppolo threw for 3,978 yards with 27 touchdowns and 13 interceptions while completing 69.1 percent of his pass attempts. Most would agree those are pretty good numbers for a quarterback who just completed his first full NFL season as a starter. Add to that a division championship, the No. 1 seed in the NFC, and a trip to the Super Bowl, and you might be scratching your head as to why ESPN and Pro Football Focus identified Garoppolo as their 49ers bounce-back candidate — a player who "struggled in 2019 but could bounce back in 2020." A lot of the reasoning has to do with Super Bowl LIV. Pro Football Focus

The San Francisco 49ers have announced that running back Jeff Wilson Jr. has been placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list. He joins wide receiver Richie James Jr., who was placed on the list on Monday. Wilson was among the players who reported for COVID-19 testing on Tuesday. The reserve/COVID-19 list has been created for a player who either tests positive for COVID-19 or has been quarantined after having been in close contact with an infected person or persons. If a player falls into either of these categories, his club is required to immediately place the player on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Clubs are not permitted to comment on a player's medical status other than referring to the roster status and may not disclose whether the player is in quarantine

The San Francisco 49ers announced several roster moves on Tuesday. Running back Jeff Wilson Jr. and wide receiver Richie James Jr. have been activated off of the reserve/COVID-19 list. That means the team no longer has any players on the list. James, however, is being moved to the active/non-football-injury list due to the broken wrist he suffered in June. The 49ers waived safety D.J. Reed with an injury designation. He will revert to NFI reserve once he clears waivers. Reed suffered a torn pectoral muscle in June and will miss the season. "That's a tough one for us," general manager John Lynch told reporters on Monday.
