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 former NFL quarterback Cam Newton hasn't wavered in his opinions surrounding San Francisco 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy, who he said played "good enough" for the Bay Area team to beat the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl 58, he is directing blame for the loss elsewhere. "Field goal versus touchdown, that's not Brock Purdy," Newton said on his "4th and 1" podcast. "Why the [expletive] did they receive the ball first? It was Tony Romo who mentioned this—when you know what you have to get, now you have four downs to get it, not three." Newton added, "The 49ers, they were just trying to get points. And that is not Brock Purdy's fault. That's bad coaching. There was too many people who was exposed. They didn't know the real rules of

Once again, the San Francisco 49ers coaching staff, including head coach Kyle Shanahan, won't be attending the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, per NBC Sports Bay Area.

Mike Sando shares take on 49ers' Brandon Aiyuk situation

By David Bonilla

The NFL offseason often sparks speculation, and for the San Francisco 49ers, the focal point will likely be wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk's contract situation. Aiyuk is under contract through the 2024 season, thanks to the team exercising the fifth-year option on the 25-year-old receiver. Ideally, both parties would prefer to secure a long-term deal before Aiyuk steps foot on the field again. Still, there's been considerable debate about how to accomplish this while maintaining a healthy salary cap in the long run. Some have even speculated that the 49ers might need to entertain trading their star player, a scenario the team likely wishes to avoid. Mike Sando of

But this week kicks off the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, and free agency is only a couple of weeks away. So things will soon pick up. GM John Lynch spoke with reporters at the Combine on Tuesday. And while he didn't give a lot of new information, there were still some highlights to discuss.
