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.

"At this time last year, it was more so getting back to being in a live pocket, having live bullets flying around me, and getting used to that. We're past that. I haven't really thought about it in a long time." Garoppolo has been taking part in

San Francisco 49ers offensive tackle Trent Williams was asked last week to identify one player he was looking forward to seeing this season. His choice was running back Jerick McKinnon, who he had an opportunity to train with this offseason. "I'm looking forward to seeing Jet," Williams told reporters. "After two years, the way he's looked in the offseason, I just can't fathom him not being a breakout player." McKinnon has been working to return from the ACL injury suffered before the start of the 2018 season. That came after signing with the 49ers just six months earlier. He has yet to take a regular-season snap with the team. That could change this

The league informed teams on Tuesday that the ban on tryouts has been lifted, effective immediately, according to a report from NFL Media. Tryouts were prohibited due to health concerns surrounding the coronavirus pandemic. NFL teams were only allowed to bring players in for physicals, and even that required multiple tests for COVID-19.
