Mike Holmgren not contacted by 49ers, is done coaching

Jan 5, 2015 at 9:51 AM--


Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times reports that Mike Holmgren was on Sports Radio KJR and stated that he had a couple of coaching offers last week, but has decided that he is done coaching.

Holmgren also said that he would have been interested in the open head coaching position with the San Francisco 49ers, but he was never contacted by the organization.

While the 49ers are interested in a number of potential candidates for the position, it looks like Holmgren is not one of them. Holmgren has not coached in the NFL since the 2008 season when he was the head coach of the Seattle Seahawks.

So far, the 49ers have interviewed Vic Fangio, the team's defensive coordinator, Dan Quinn, the defensive coordinator for the Seattle Seahawks, Rex Ryan, the former head coach of the New York Jets, Mike Shanahan, the former head coach of the Washington Redskins and Denver Broncos, Josh McDaniels, the offensive coordinator for the New England Patriots, and Adam Gase, the offensive coordinator for the Denver Broncos.

The team has also shown interest or requested to interview Teryl Austin, the defensive coordinator for the Detroit Lions, Todd Bowles, the defensive coordinator for the Arizona Cardinals, Jim Tomsula, the 49ers defensive line coach, and Kyle Shanahan, the offensive coordinator for the Cleveland Browns and son of Mike Shanahan.

While San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan has always expressed significant confidence in his right tackle, Mike McGlinchey, fans and analysts have often been less than complimentary while discussing the offensive lineman's career as a whole. In May, the 49ers exercised McGlinchey's fifth-year option, meaning he will be with the team through the 2022 season. Beyond that, who knows? After defending himself against critics for much of last season, McGlinchey eventually admitted that there was room for improvement. "I think there's a lot of things I did really well all year," McGlinchey said in December. "There's things I did a lot better than last year.

New San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator Mike McDaniel stepped up to the podium after Thursday's training camp practice. Due to past COVID restrictions and precautions, it was the first time he got to speak in person to the media since being promoted. "I'm just excited to be here," McDaniel said in his opening comments. "Equally excited for you guys to take in how physically imposing I am." McDaniel is 5-foot-9 and about 180 pounds after lunch. His sense of humor was well-accepted. Questions about rookie Trey Lance quickly presented themselves. The players had about 40 days off before reporting to training camp. Lance has been studying hard to learn head coach Kyle Shanahan's playbook since being drafted No. 3 overall by the 49ers in
