49ers interview former Dolphins assistant Tony Oden for defensive backs coach job

Feb 7, 2020 at 12:42 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers interviewed former Miami Dolphins defensive backs coach Tony Oden as a potential candidate to replace Joe Woods, who left the team this week to become the defensive coordinator of the Cleveland Browns. Matt Barrows of The Athletic was the first to report the interest in Oden.


Oden has 16 years of NFL coaching experience, having spent time in various roles with the Houston Texans, New Orleans Saints, Jacksonville Jaguars, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and Detroit Lions before serving as the Dolphins' defensive backs coach the past two seasons.

Oden was part of the Saints' Super Bowl XLIV championship team during the 2009 season and has been working with defensive backs since 2006.

Barrows notes that Oden worked alongside current 49ers defensive line coach Kris Kocurek during his time in Miami and Detroit.

The 49ers are also reportedly interested in former Dallas Cowboys passing-game coordinator and defensive backs coach, Kris Richard, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

"From what I understand, among the candidates being considered to replace Woods are former Cowboys passing-game coordinator for defense, Kris Richard," Rapoport reported. "Remember, he coached a similar system with the Dallas Cowboys, and certainly, that would add some heft, a little more heft, to this defense."

No one is questioning Justin Fields' athleticism. Some question the former Ohio State quarterback's ability to transition from the college game to the pros quickly. Mark Sanchez recently joined The Pat McAfee Show and explained why Fields' ability to learn an NFL playbook might not take as long as some might be anticipating. Maybe all of his skeptics, who want to find ways to bring the quarterback down, are wrong. "For Justin, this guy, Dr. Goldman, he's a sports psychologist; I talked to him yesterday," Sanchez said (h/t to Jordan Cohn of 95.7 The Game). "He has some interesting

Count former San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Torrey Smith among those who would question Mac Jones being the draft selection at No. 3 overall. It is important to note that Smith likes the Alabama quarterback and describes him as a "solid player," but is he a prospect worth trading future first-round picks and a third-rounder? Smith doesn't see it. "I promised to never be the former player that is a hater but I swear I have a hard time understanding the 49ers would trade all of that for Mac Jones," wrote Smith in a tweet. "I like Mac and I think he will be a solid player but as a prospect I don't see the value in 'mortgaging the future' for
