49ers Interview Schedule: Josh McDaniels today and the busy week ahead

Jan 7, 2017 at 7:34 AM--


According to Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle, New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels is reportedly very interested in being the next head coach of the San Francisco 49ers. McDaniels will be a busy man on Saturday. The in-demand candidate has interviews lined up with not only the 49ers, but the Los Angeles Rams and Jacksonville Jaguars – all taking place on the same day and at a location near the Patriots' facility.

Everything that we have heard indicates that CEO Jed York has a desire to shape the 49ers' rebuild based on a team like the Patriots, who have enjoyed long-lasting success. A pairing of someone like McDaniels with a general manager like Patriots director of player personnel Nick Caserio, who the 49ers have reportedly requested an interview with, may be exactly what ownership is looking for. Although, it is unknown when or even if the 49ers will interview Caserio. No reports of a pending meeting have surfaced...yet.

McDaniels declined to interview with the 49ers in 2011. However, he did talk to the team in 2015 prior to San Francisco going forward with Jim Tomsula as their head coach – a marriage, like the one that followed with Chip Kelly, that would last only one year.


"The 49ers, who are the only team with a general-manager opening, are appealing to McDaniels because of their clean-slate situation and CEO Jed York's stated commitment to patiently rebuilding," wrote Eric Branch on Friday. "It's believed the 49ers' status as a marquee franchise, despite their recent free-fall, also makes them more attractive than Los Angeles and Jacksonville."

The 49ers have been busy traveling to interview candidates for their vacant head coach and general manager positions and that will not ease up next week. You can keep track of the entire search using our up-to-date head coach and general manager tracker.

It is the first time that the organization is trying to fill both spots since 2005 when the 49ers hired Mike Nolan and then Scot McCloughan. The search and interview process will be led by Jed York and Chief Strategy Officer & Executive Vice President of Football Operations Paraag Marathe.

Below is a list of the known interviews that have already taken place and will take place.

Playoff Picture: 49ers jump in playoff standings ahead of Week 12

By David Bonilla
Nov 22

Entering Week 11, the San Francisco 49ers held the seventh and final spot in the NFC playoff standings. However, heading into Week 12, after the team's 38-10 rout of the Arizona Cardinals in Mexico City, San Francisco's playoff picture looks brighter. While the 49ers and Seattle Seahawks both own identical 6-4 records, San Francisco has beaten Seattle once this season, so it owns the tiebreaker between the two teams. That has lifted the 49ers into first place in the NFC West. If the season ended today, the 49ers would be the No. 3 seed in the NFC and would be preparing to host the New York Giants at Levi's Stadium. San Francisco has won two of its last three
