Rapoport: New Orleans or San Francisco for Sean Payton

Jan 6, 2016 at 6:55 AM--


Early Tuesday morning, there was a report that the Indianapolis Colts had reached out to Sean Payton's camp about their head coach job prior to the re-signing of Chuck Pagano to a contract extension. Payton, who is still under contract with the New Orleans Saints, has been allowed to have discussions with other teams. However, the Colts' prior interest was quickly debunked.

As for a likely landing spot for Payton, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport seems to believe that the landing spot for him will either be New Orleans or San Francisco.


Payton has been the head coach of the Saints since 2006 and won Super Bowl XLIV. He has a 93-61 record as a head coach, including the postseason.


The 49ers have also been in discussions with former Denver Broncos and Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan, scheduled an interview with Buffalo Bills assistant head coach and running backs coach Anthony Lynn, and requested to interview Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Hue Jackson.

The 49ers are making it easily known that they are after an offensive minded coach.

49ers vs. Saints: Studs and Duds from San Francisco's loss to New Orleans

By Chris Wilson

After jumping out to a 10-point lead and knocking QB Drew Brees out of the game, the 49ers went "No Gas, All Brakes" in their 27-13 loss to the Saints. The San Francisco 49ers had an opportunity to stun the New Orleans Saints after jumping out to a quick lead, but a combination of turnovers, a lackluster offensive performance, and abysmal special teams play allowed the Saints to cruise to an easy victory over a mostly disinterested Niners team and coaching staff. Head coach Kyle Shanahan reached his Promised Land -- the team's annual bye week --

Rams coach Sean McVay sees a bright future for 'disruptive' 49ers rookie Javon Kinlaw

San Francisco 49ers rookie defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw has shown a lot of potential in his first NFL season. The numbers haven't been there, but the first-round pick was initially seen as a player who might take some time to develop. Kinlaw has just 1.5 sacks to go with his 22 tackles, and four quarterback hits through 10 game appearances this season. The 49ers are preparing to face the Los Angeles Rams this weekend, and Rams head coach Sean McVay can certainly see Kinlaw's potential. "I think he's got a bright future," McVay told 49ers reporters via a conference call on Wednesday. "He's definitely been playing more consistently, snap in and snap out. He flashes. You see the ability. "But I think understanding the techniques, the

Rapoport weighs in on John Lynch's comments about Jimmy Garoppolo

By David Bonilla

Last week, John Lynch offered a vote of confidence in his quarterback, Jimmy Garoppolo. But it came after the general manager admitted that the San Francisco 49ers were scouting college quarterbacks. To many, the comments didn't mean much. Lynch says the 49ers always scout quarterbacks each year. One good fit for head coach Kyle Shanahan might be BYU's Zach Wilson. So, of course, VP of player personnel Adam Peters traveling to watch BYU made headlines. "Here's what I know about Jimmy Garoppolo, and I think I've been consistent," Lynch said last week during a KNBR interview. "We're a better football team when he's out there. We win a lot of games when he's out
