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.

Silver: 'A lot' of Trey Lance-to-49ers noise around the NFL ahead of draft

The 2021 NFL Draft is tonight. Mac Jones of Alabama has long been the betting favorite to go to the San Francisco 49ers at No. 3 overall. The scenario is not the most popular among the fanbase. The other two top quarterback prospects — Justin Fields of Ohio State and Trey Lance of North Dakota State — are widely viewed as having higher ceilings. For those suffering from anxiety that Jones may be the pick, as many still expect, NFL Network's Michael Silver reports that there is growing chatter around the league surrounding a potential Lance-to-49ers scenario. "There's a lot of Trey Lance/Niners noise out there in NFL GM/coach circles this morning," Silver wrote via

49ers' Kyle Shanahan and John Lynch talk Jimmy Garoppolo, Richard Sherman, and Nick Mullens

Jimmy Garoppolo's days with the San Francisco 49ers may be numbered. He will likely remain with the team through the 2021 season. However, after drafting Trey Lance of North Dakota State with the No. 3 overall pick, it is clear that a change is on the horizon for the Niners. While most felt that might create an awkward situation in the quarterback room, Garoppolo has made the best of it. In fact, Garoppolo was the first 49ers player who reached out to Lance after the incoming rookie heard his name called in Cleveland, Ohio. Head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch spoke to the media on Friday night after the team was done making its Day 2 picks. They were asked if they spoke with Garoppolo after selecting Lance. Obviously, the quarterback knew the
