Jason Tarver expected to join Tomsula’s staff

Jan 15, 2015 at 1:16 PM--


Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area is reporting that former Oakland Raiders defensive coordinator Jason Tarver is expected to join the San Francisco 49ers as part of new head coach Jim Tomsula's staff.

While his role has not been officially determined, there was much speculation that Tarver might be asked to join the 49ers as Tomsula's defensive coordinator.

Tarver has been the defensive coordinator with the Raiders since 2012. In 2011, he was the defensive coordinator and linebackers coach at Stanford. From 2001 to 2010, he was on the 49ers' staff, where he served as an offensive quality control coach, assistant running backs coach and offensive assistant, and outside linebackers coach. He served with Tomsula for four years with the 49ers and coached a young Patrick Willis.

While Tarver's Raiders defenses never ranked above 28th in points allowed or 18th in yards allowed during his three seasons as their defensive coordinator, it is important to note that he had far less talent to work with while in Oakland.

Robert Griffin III makes pitch to join 49ers as a mentor for Trey Lance

Robert Griffin III is still looking for work after spending the past three seasons with the Baltimore Ravens. The 31-year-old recently made a pitch to one team during Bleacher Report's draft show. He'd love to reunite with San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan and work as a mentor for rookie quarterback Trey Lance. There's one problem, though. The Niners now have a pretty crowded quarterback room. Jimmy Garoppolo figures to be the team's starter. Lance will learn behind him until he is ready to take over the reins. The team also signed Nate Sudfeld this offseason, offering him a contract that signals he may be more than just a camp arm. San Francisco also has Josh



49ers CB Jason Verrett also changing his jersey number

Add San Francisco 49ers cornerback Jason Verrett to the list of players changing their jersey numbers this offseason. On April 21, the NFL approved a proposal that relaxes the jersey number rules of certain position groups, opening the door for wide receivers, defensive backs, and some others to wear single-digit numbers. On Monday, safety Jaquiski Tartt revealed that he is switching from No. 29 to No. 26. Of course, that doesn't really fall into the rule change. Verrett, however, is switching from No. 22 to No. 2, the number he wore at TCU. It will be his second number change since joining the 49ers in 2019. His initial number was 27.

Jason Smith throws out wild theory that 49ers could trade Trey Lance for Aaron Rodgers

And here you thought the Aaron Rodgers-to-San Francisco 49ers chatter was over. I'll preface this by saying what Jason Smith of FOX Sports Radio said about the 49ers and the Green Bay Packers quarterback might be the most ridiculous thing you read today. Now that you have been sufficiently warned, brace yourself, and proceed, if you wish. Smith believes San Francisco remains interested in Rodgers, and drafting Trey Lance of North Dakota State with the No. 3 overall pick last week hasn't changed that. Now, any rational reporter or fan clearly understands that the Niners heard about the disgruntled Green Bay quarterback and did their due diligence, as head coach Kyle
