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.

John Lynch was busy trying to sign Ziggy Ansah during 4th quarter of 49ers-Jets

John Lynch is always nervous while watching from a stadium suite whenever his San Francisco 49ers are playing. It's sometimes frustrating because the general manager knows there is nothing he can do while the team he helped create battles an opponent on the field below. That wasn't necessarily the case on Sunday when the 49ers played the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium. Lynch wasn't just sitting up there watching his team. He was quite busy, actually. The general manager was working during the fourth quarter to sign pass rusher Ezekiel Ansah. "This week, I actually was (doing something during the game) because in the fourth quarter, we were trying to sign Ziggy Ansah because we needed someone," Lynch said Thursday on KNBR's Tolbert, Krueger & Brooks
