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.

The next inductee into the Edward J. DeBartolo Sr. San Francisco 49ers Hall of Fame sat down with Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area for the latest episode of the 49ers Insider Podcast. Young wore No. 97 during his time with San Francisco, the only team he played for during his 14-year career. Another player wears that number now — defensive end Nick Bosa. What does Young, who spent some time coaching through the college and pro ranks after his NFL career, think about the talented second-year player? "Nick does a good job just in terms of one, being a very knowledgable player," Young told Maiocco. "He sees the game. You can tell he's been surrounded by good coaching. And then just his family history. His dad played, his brother played, and so

NFL cancels Weeks 1 and 4 of preseason, eliminating Broncos, Chargers from 49ers' schedule

The NFL is canceling Weeks 1 and 4 of the preseason, according to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk. The league is reportedly expected to announce the decision on Thursday. "The move was driven by two primary factors," writes Florio. "First, teams who will be playing preseason games on the road won't want to move that many people. Second, given that no teams had on-field practice sessions in the offseason, coaches would rather have the extra time to work with their teams, and that will happen if they don't have to worry about two extra preseason games." For the 49ers, this will mean the elimination of the team's August 15 road game against the Denver

Pro Football Focus took a different approach to predict the records of each NFL team. The analytics site looked at the worst-case and best-case scenarios for the 32 clubs. "Injuries happen. Key players significantly improve or see their play start to deteriorate," writes Ben Linsey. "Talented teams fall victim to poor coaching and dysfunction. All that goes to show that there is a range of outcomes when talking about projections. The current environment and uncertainty surrounding the 2020 season adds more fuel to the fire." Pro Football Focus used season simulations by its research and development team to predict the high range (90th percentile) and low
