Nolan gives Bears permission to interview offensive assistant/quarterbacks Pep Hamilton

Feb 26, 2007 at 6:25 PM--


Matt Maiocco of The Santa Rose Press Democrat reports:
Coach Mike Nolan gave permission to the Bears to interview 49ers offensive assistant/quarterbacks Pep Hamilton for their quarterbacks coach position. The Chicago Sun-Times reported that Hamilton has already interviewed for the job to succeed Wade Wilson. The Ravens' Jedd Fisch is the other candidate for the job.

A lot of people might be wondering why Nolan would allow Hamilton, 32, to leave when the 49ers could not get permission from other teams to interview candidates for the offensive coordinator job.

Nolan said earlier this offseason he would stand in the way of certain coaches who wanted to further their careers. In Hamilton's case, he worked for the 49ers in an entry-level position and he has a chance to become a position coach. None of the coaches Nolan sought to interview for offensive coordinator was in an entry-level job.

Hamilton earned the scholar-athlete award two consecutive years (1995-'96) as quarterback at Howard. He graduated with a business degree in 1997.

Quarterback Brock Purdy wasn't quite at his best in the 49ers' 19-12 Divisional Playoff win against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, but he made more than enough plays to help the 49ers advance and add another chapter to the amazing story of his rookie season. The win moved Purdy to 7-0 as a starter and gave him his second playoff victory, which is an outstanding start for any rookie quarterback, whether they were selected first overall in the draft or last, as Purdy was in 2022. Along the way Purdy did enough to continue to impress his teammates as well as those watching him at home, including former 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman, who expressed his praise for Purdy on Twitter.
