Dolphins to interview 49ers’ Mike McDaniel, Vikings to interview DeMeco Ryans on Wednesday

Jan 18, 2022 at 11:35 AM--


The Miami Dolphins will interview San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator Mike McDaniel for their vacant head coaching job on Wednesday, per TheMMQB's Albert Breer. The interview will take place virtually, given the time constraints for the 49ers.

San Francisco is preparing to play the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field on Saturday in the Divisional Round of the playoffs. The team is coming off a Sunday win against the Dallas Cowboys in the Wild Card round, which means one less day of preparation for the Niners.


Breer also reports that the Minnesota Vikings will interview 49ers defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans on Wednesday. That too will be conducted virtually.


Kyle Shanahan hired McDaniel to his staff upon becoming the 49ers' head coach in 2017. McDaniel started as the team's run-game coordinator but was promoted to offensive coordinator on January 18, 2021.

McDaniel and Shanahan have been together for a long time. Before joining the 49ers, he was an offensive assistant under Shanahan, then an offensive coordinator, with the Atlanta Falcons. McDaniel also worked with Shanahan in Houston, Washington, and Cleveland. He served as an offensive assistant with the Texans, an offensive assistant and receivers coach in Washington, and a receivers coach with the Browns.

While Shanahan remains the 49ers' game-day play-caller, McDaniel plays a big part in creating each week's game plan.

The 49ers promoted Ryans to defensive coordinator on January 18, 2021, following the departure of Robert Saleh to the New York Jets. Ryans previously served as the team's linebackers coach from 2018-2020 and started his time on Shanahan's staff as a defensive quality control coach in 2017.

During the regular season, the 49ers defense ranked No. 3 in total yards allowed, No. 6 in passing yards allowed, No. 7 in rushing yards allowed, and No. 10 in points allowed.

The San Francisco 49ers face the defending Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams twice. They also face the Raiders for the first time since the latter left the Bay Area for Las Vegas. The two once-local rivals will play at Allegiant Stadium. The 49ers also host briefly-retired Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Every time the Niners face Brady, fans are treated (said sarcastically) to stories about how the future Hall of Fame quarterback loved the Bay Area team growing up and dreamed of playing for the 49ers. He has won seven Super Bowls since. Or, more recently, how the Niners passed on signing Brady in 2020. The quarterback went on to win that seventh Super Bowl that season. None of those matchups are

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.
