McLorg: 49ers and Hue Jackson marriage a “done deal”

Jan 10, 2016 at 3:18 PM--


Kyle McLorg of Bay Area Sports Guy is reporting that, according to a source, Hue Jackson becoming the San Francisco 49ers' 20th head coach is a "done deal."


Mike Silver of Sports Illustrated believes otherwise and tweeted the following.


No one has officially reported this, so take it for what it is worth. McLorg has broken other 49ers news in the past, like the benching of QB Colin Kaepernick in favor of Blaine Gabbert, so there is no reason to not believe his sources. At worst, it shows that the 49ers have a genuine interest in making Jackson their next head coach.

Is McLorg correct or not? The Cleveland Browns may have something to say about that. We will likely find out soon. Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area reported that no offer had been made yet, but that a new coach could be in place "fairly soon."


Jackson, who has been considered by many to be the front-runner for the team's head coaching vacancy, met with the 49ers for five hours in Cincinnati on Sunday before heading to an interview with the Browns. Maiocco has said that the interview between the 49ers and Jackson went "very well."


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.

49ers OL Jon Feliciano says Eagles DT Jalen Carter threatened him and his children with death during game

The bad blood between the Philadelphia Eagles and San Francisco 49ers seems to be getting worse. It certainly isn't getting any less bizarre. The latest chapter of back-and-forth between these two teams occurred Tuesday evening in an exchange between 49ers offensive lineman Jon Feliciano and Eagles defensive tackle Jalen Carter. Feliciano made headlines earlier in the week by publicly pointing out a mistake made by guard Spencer Burford during a pivotal overtime play against the Chiefs in Super Bowl LVIII, to which Carter responded by writing "Same dude who spoke on my dead teammate and the reason I was emotional during our game." Carter was referring to former University of Georgia player Devin Willock, who died along with team recruiting analyst Chandler LeCroy

49ers Notebook: Nick Bosa lobbies for 49ers to keep Chase Young; Kyle Juszczyk addresses his future; Has anyone on the team watched the Super Bowl yet?

The offseason is underway for the San Francisco 49ers, which means the team's decision makers will soon have to determine which free agents they would like to try to keep and which ones they'll have to let go. One of the more interesting cases is defensive end Chase Young, whom the 49ers added during the regular season from the Washington Commanders in exchange for a third-round draft pick. It may be hard for the 49ers to prevent Young from being more than a rent-a-player, but Young's friend and former Ohio State University teammate Nick Bosa made it clear Tuesday he'd like to see general manager John Lynch and the 49ers brass find a way to keep Young on the team. In this edition of the 49ers Notebook, we delve into a range of topics starting with Bosa's
