Greg Roman stayed behind after Wildcard game to interview for head coach position

Jan 7, 2014 at 9:24 AM--




Chris Biderman, the Editor in Chief of Niners Digest, is reporting that San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator Greg Roman did not travel back with the team after their victory over the Green Bay Packers on Sunday. He remained behind in order to interview for a head coaching position.

Green Bay is just four hours from Minneapolis, the home of the Minnesota Vikings. While there is no official word that the Vikings are the team that he is visiting with, they seem like the logical choice since they have reportedly shown interest in Roman.

The 49ers are preparing for a playoff matchup with the Carolina Panthers in the divisional round of the NFC playoffs. The two teams go head-to-head on Sunday, January 12.


The other team that has shown interest in Roman is the Washington Redskins. On Monday, Jim Harbaugh confirmed that teams had contacted the 49ers for permission to interview offensive coordinator Greg Roman, defensive coordinator Vic Fangio, and others from the coaching staff.

San Francisco 49ers players aren't around their Santa Clara headquarters right now because the team is on its bye week. However, they will return next week to begin preparations for the Indianapolis Colts. The off time is a good opportunity to listen to analysts like Greg Cosell, who joined KNBR today and shared his thoughts on rookie quarterback Trey Lance's first start this past weekend, a 17-10 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. What did the respected long-time analyst think of the 21-year-old's starting debut? Lance ran the football 16 times for 89 yards, which was a bit unexpected considering head coach Kyle Shanahan had said that fans could expect the rookie looking more like a quarterback and less like a running back in the game,

Trey Lance's first NFL start was far from perfect, but it was good enough to leave a positive impression on those who were playing with and against him on the field. Lance finished with 192 yards on 15-of-29 passing with zero touchdowns and one interception in Sunday's 17-10 loss to the Arizona Cardinals, while also leading both teams in rushing with 16 carries for 89 yards. Following the game, 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters he felt Lance played well overall despite the first quarter interception that the Cardinals turned into their first touchdown. "I thought he did some really good things," Shanahan said. "Definitely wasn't perfect, which no one ever has been. That first pick I thought just sailed on him. He was going to the right spot but it

Watching Nick Bosa test his arm and wrist on the sideline had to be a scary moment for San Francisco 49ers fans. Bosa missed most of last season after suffering a torn ACL. The last thing anyone wants to see is the talented pass rusher miss more time this season. San Francisco is 2-3 and hopes to rebound after the bye week from its three consecutive losses. The team needs Bosa down the stretch if it hopes to turn things around. The third-year defender briefly left the game after sacking Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray on Sunday. Fans watching the broadcast saw Bosa nursing his right arm as he headed off the field. The defensive end returned to the game,

We'll re-evaluate him at the end of the week to determine his status for next week. Really won't know whether he's got a chance versus Indy until next week, but he's got a
