Chargers assistant Robert Saleh a target to be Shanahan’s defensive coordinator with 49ers

Feb 5, 2017 at 8:36 AM--


Ian Rapoport of NFL Network is reporting that Los Angeles Chargers linebackers coach Robert Saleh is a target for the defensive coordinator job when Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan becomes the head coach of the San Francisco 49ers.


Saleh was the Houston Texans' defensive quality control coach and then assistant linebackers coach during Shanahan's time there. He was the Jacksonville Jaguars' linebackers coach from 2014 until 2016 and then signed to serve in the same role with the Chargers in 2017.


Shanahan is expected to be named the new head coach of the 49ers as soon as Monday. Right now, his focus is on the New England Patriots defense and winning Super Bowl LI on Sunday. Because of the late potential signing, Shanahan may have a harder time creating a coaching staff than other head coaches hired following the end of the 2016 regular season. One role that should not be a big issue is that of offensive coordinator. Shanahan is expected to handle the play calling with the 49ers.

The New York Giants have been a whirlwind of a franchise, last making the playoffs in 2016, and going 22-59 during that time span. In addition, they've churned through three head coaches in that time period with Bob McAdoo, Pat Shurmur, and Joe Judge, while keeping GM Dave Gettleman, who's struggled to identify top-tier talent in the draft, and has made questionable free agent decisions, which is why Judge was fired this offseason, and Gettleman "retired", just like Tom Coughlin a few years back. San Francisco 49ers assistant general manager Adam Peters, whose identified talent consistently over the past few years in the draft, is a finalist for New York's GM opening, having completed a second interview yesterday afternoon.
