RB coach Bobby Turner leaving Falcons for 49ers

Feb 8, 2017 at 9:53 AM--


Bobby Turner has served as the running backs coach of the Atlanta Falcons since 2015, the same amount of time as former offensive coordinator and new San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan. Now, Turner will follow Shanahan to the 49ers, per Gil Brandt of NFL Media.


Atlanta finished fifth in the NFL in rushing offense during the 2016 regular season. Turner has also served as the running backs coach for the Washington Redskins and Denver Broncos. He started his NFL coaching career in 1995.

Tom Rathman is the current running backs coach with the 49ers. On Sunday, Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area reported that the 49ers want Rathman to return, but it is unknown what role he would serve.

Richard Sherman describes conversations with John Lynch about leaving 49ers as 'fantastic'

Richard Sherman plans to play for another team in 2021. It sounds like the San Francisco 49ers expect that to happen, too. The veteran cornerback will hit free agency next month, and the Niners will move forward without him. The team has a reduced salary-cap to deal with and several tough decisions to make, making Sherman set to become a cap casualty. Cris Collinsworth recently asked Sherman what that conversation with general manager John Lynch was like. The defender says there is no animosity between the two sides. Sherman, who acts as his own agent and is part of the NFLPA executive committee, understands professional football's business side. That is allowing the two sides to part amicably. "Honestly, it was fantastic. It was business-like," Sherman told



Simms wonders if 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan is changing how he views QBs

Last year, Kyle Shanahan watched as Patrick Mahomes rallied his team late in the Super Bowl to dash the San Francisco 49ers' hopes of a sixth championship. With Deshaun Watson wanting out of Houston and interested teams contemplating what it might take to acquire the quarterback, should he force a trade, the coach has to look back at 2017 with at least a little regret. The 49ers could have had Watson — or Mahomes for that matter — and perhaps never would have had to wonder "what if?" The 49ers passed on both quarterbacks because the plan was to acquire Kirk Cousins during the rebuilding process. So Shanahan and general manager John Lynch used their first-ever draft pick as a duo on defensive lineman Solomon Thomas. It's been assumed that Shanahan is

The Jaguars are represented at the pro day by head coach Urban Meyer and offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell. Other teams who sent coaches, personnel people or area scouts:



Report: 49ers among Deshaun Watson's list of teams he's 'intrigued by'

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler is reporting that the San Francisco 49ers are among quarterback Deshaun Watson's list of teams that he is "intrigued by." "I checked in with a source that says Deshaun Watson has a list of teams that he's intrigued by," said Fowler on ESPN's Get Up. "He's not pigeonholing anything, but he's got a list. I didn't get all the teams, but I was told that the Denver Broncos, the San Francisco 49ers are two of them. "I also asked the source about the Jets and the Dolphins because they have the most draft capital this year and the next few years. I was told the Jets, 'Eh, probably not.' Maybe more so the Dolphins as far as viability." Watson has expressed frustration with the Texans organization and has requested a trade. The
