Justin Smith: I may want to ‘dip my toe into coaching’

May 19, 2015 at 9:02 AM--


Former San Francisco 49ers defensive lineman Justin Smith, who announced his retirement yesterday, went on 95.7 The GAME today and talked about his decision.

Smith said that everyone in the locker room loved Jim Harbaugh, but his departure did not factor into his decision. He has all the faith in the world in head coach Jim Tomsula and the decision to retire was based solely on his recent physical inabilities.

He said that he has been trying to stay close to the 49ers organization, visiting with the team and even checking out the rookie minicamp. He even stated that he may want to 'dip my toe into coaching' in a couple of years.

Smith also mentioned that the 49ers knew that he was leaning toward retirement, which likely didn't take them by surprise. Having known for some time, it very likely that the team had been preparing for his departure all offseason.

They seem to think that having a good team for ten years equals a dynasty, and that they somehow have surpassed the San Francisco 49ers in historical greatness. Forget the fact that you can't have a dynasty with only one Super Bowl Championship. Seahawks fans want you to pay attention to what their team has accomplished the last decade. But, they don't want 49er fans referring to the Camelot days, when San Francisco won five Lombardi trophies. I hate the Seahawks—that's no secret, and it's partly because of their annoying fans, most of which just started paying attention to the team in 2012. They don't like when San Francisco fans mention that the 49ers dynasty lasted
