Gus Bradley won’t join 49ers, agrees to go to Chargers

Jan 20, 2017 at 7:12 PM--


Former Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley has agreed to become the defensive coordinator of the Los Angeles Chargers, per Adam Schefter of ESPN.


The former Jaguars coach originally only wanted to join the San Francisco 49ers if they hired Seattle Seahawks assistant head coach and offensive line coach Tom Cable to be their new head coach. The 49ers are expected to hire Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan. The 49ers upped their offer to Bradley and the decision reportedly came down to the Chargers and the 49ers.

In 2011 under Bradley, the Seahawks defense ranked 7th in points allowed, 9th in total yards allowed, 11th against the pass, and 15th against the run. In 2012, the unit ranked 1st in points allowed, 4th in total yards allowed, 6th against the pass, and 10th against the run.

This comes after the 49ers inquired about possibly bringing back Vic Fangio, who served as the team's defensive coordinator under Jim Harbaugh and currently holds the same role with the Chicago Bears. Since he is currently under contract with Chicago, the Bears said no.

Pro Football Focus looked at the entire 2022 NFL Draft and identified some of the biggest draft steals. The San Francisco 49ers didn't own a first-round pick but did have nine picks starting with No. 61 overall in the second round. With that selection, the Niners added defensive end Drake Jackson out of USC, and the analytics site sees the pick as a great value for the NFC West team. "San Francisco got a promising developmental pass-rusher with Drake Jackson much later than any team should have," wrote Anthony
