Nothing will happen until after Super Bowl LIV, but the San Francisco 49ers are expected to lose passing-game coordinator and defensive backs coach Joe Woods after the game. The assistant will likely join the Cleveland Browns as head coach Kevin Stefanski's defensive coordinator.

The 49ers are laser-focused on Sunday but are reportedly considering their options for Woods' replacement. One potential option is former Dallas Cowboys passing-game coordinator and defensive backs coach, Kris Richard, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

"Joe Woods, the secondary coach, he's done a fantastic job," Rapoport said on-air. "He's expected to become the Cleveland Browns defensive coordinator. From what I understand, among the candidates being considered to replace Woods are former Cowboys passing-game coordinator for defense, Kris Richard.

"Remember, he coached a similar system with the Dallas Cowboys, and certainly, that would add some heft, a little more heft, to this defense."

Richard also spent eight seasons with the Seattle Seahawks in several coaching roles, including defensive coordinator and defensive backs coach, so he is well-versed in the 49ers' defensive system. He was there during defensive coordinator Robert Saleh's three seasons in Seattle (2011-13), so there is some familiarity there.

Richard was with the Cowboys for the last two seasons.

Since 2019, the 49ers defense has been one of the best, if not the best, in the NFL. And while the defense was dominant at times this season, they took a step back in 2023. There were games like the September 17th game against the Los Angeles Rams, in which the 49ers gave up 23 points to a Rams team missing WR Cooper Kupp. Then there was the October game in Minnesota, in which the Vikings were without star WR Justin Jefferson, yet the 49ers' defense still gave up 22 points when they weren't able to figure out how to guard rookie WR Jordan Addison. You may recall that Wilks called a zero
