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.

The San Francisco 49ers describe their head coach as a "detailed wizard," and an "aggressive guru," but Kyle Shanahan's actions -- and words -- tell a different story of a man struggling to find a path to greatness. Prior to the San Francisco 49ers' NBC Sunday Night Football matchup with the Los Angeles Rams, sideline reporter Michelle Tafoya asked each player from both teams for three words which best describe their respective head coach. The point of the exercise was to highlight the similarities between the two young coaches, which was a common theme throughout the broadcast. Four of the words provided were identical, and the remainder were relatively similar. However, Shanahan's descriptors formed the image of a "smart" and "relentless"

New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick praised San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle this week while on a conference call with reporters. "Kittle is a great player," Belichick said. "He does everything well. I'd put him right at the top of the league there, period. ... He's as good as anybody that I've coached or as good as anybody that we've played against." Added Belichick: "He's a great player. I don't think there's a tight end in the league, and we've seen a lot of good ones and had a lot of good ones, but I don't think there's anybody in the league that does everything overall as well as he does. He just really doesn't have any

The San Francisco 49ers put in a dominating performance on Sunday as the team beat the New England Patriots 33-6 at Gillette Stadium. The 49ers defense kept the Patriots out of the end zone while hauling in four interceptions. One of those interceptions went into Fred Warner's arms. The third-year linebacker finished the game with seven tackles and a pass defensed to go along with the pick. That was enough for NBC Sports writer Peter King to name Warner among his Defensive Players of the Week. King wrote the following of Warner: "'I try to find a flaw in Fred Warner,' Tony Romo said Sunday. 'I can't.' Warner shined
