Jan 10, 2016 at 11:33 AM--


Mike Silver of Sports Illustrated is reporting that the San Francisco 49ers have completed a five-hour interview with Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Hue Jackson for the team's head coaching vacancy. The interview was reportedly in Cincinnati.

Jackson will next interview with the Cleveland Browns for their own head coaching vacancy.


Jackson spent 2011 as the head coach of the Oakland Raiders before joining the Bengals as their secondary coach in 2012. He became the running backs coach in 2013 and then the offensive coordinator in 2014.


While he has an 8-8 record as a head coach, he is highly respected around the NFL. The Bengals had the seventh ranked scoring offense this season, scoring 26.2 points per game. Cincinnati finished with a 12-4 record, winning the AFC North.

The connections to some of the all-time great safeties are strong for 49ers rookie Talanoa Hufanga as he begins his NFL career. Hufanga, who was selected by the 49ers in Round 5 of the 2021 NFL Draft after a standout career as a safety at USC, is currently at 49ers facilities with other members of his draft class as he prepares for rookie minicamp this weekend (Friday-Saturday).

Scot McCloughan spent two seasons as the San Francisco 49ers general manager, helping build the roster eventually taken over by Trent Baalke and Jim Harbaugh.

But personally, he still liked Lance more than

Jimmy Garoppolo will earn a base salary of $24.1 million in 2021. The plan is to have Trey Lance, whom the San Francisco 49ers drafted No. 3 overall last week, eventually take over for him. Keeping Garoppolo, a savvy veteran who is already well-versed in head coach Kyle Shanahan's offense, might seem like a no-brainer from a personnel perspective. After all, the 49ers are built to win now. Are the hopes of a championship season something you want to throw on the shoulders of a rookie quarterback? Financially, it is a significant ask of ownership. That is a lot of money to invest in a player who may only be around for one more season.
