49ers no longer in the running for Hue Jackson?

Jan 12, 2016 at 12:33 PM--


Tim Kawakami of The Mercury News is reporting that the San Francisco 49ers are no longer in the running for Cincinnati Bengals head coach Hue Jackson.


However, Mike Silver of Sports Illustrated believes that there is "no one out" of the Jackson sweepstakes.


The 49ers, along with the Cleveland Browns, interviewed Jackson on Sunday for each team's head coaching vacancies. Jackson met with 49ers CEO Jed York for five hours in Cincinnati.

Jackson had been considered by many to be the front-runner for the 49ers. The New York Giants then requested permission to interview Jackson. They are scheduled to meet on Thursday. Jackson has said that he wanted to meet with the Giants before making a decision.

Since then, the 49ers have moved on to another candidate. Ironically, it is Tom Coughlin, the man that the Giants are attempting to replace with Jackson. Coughlin is meeting with 49ers general manager Trent Baalke today.

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 49ers have already met with former Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly, Buffalo Bills assistant head coach and running backs coach Anthony Lynn, Cleveland Browns offensive coordinator John DeFilippo, Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter, and even had discussions with former Denver Broncos and Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan.

49ers-Eagles: Goal line stand turns the tide after shaky 49ers start

If there was one significant turning point in the San Francisco 49ers' 17-11 win over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, it was most likely the unexpected goal line stand members of the defense produced after a 91-yard pass put their backs against the wall in the second quarter. Down 3-0 to the Eagles with just over seven minutes remaining in the half, the 49ers had a long field behind them after a punt from Mitch Wishnowsky pinned the Eagles at their own three-yard line. But on the first play after the punt, Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts went deep for wide receiver Quez Watkins, who went for 91 yards before being brought down by safety Jaquiski Tartt and cornerback Deommodore Lenoir at the 49ers' six-yard line.

49ers-Lions: Kyle Shanahan discusses plan for Dee Ford, Nick Bosa, explains Josh Norman signing

The San Francisco 49ers defense should be much improved with the returns of edge rushers Nick Bosa and Dee Ford. Both are coming off significant injuries, missing most of last season. Ford appeared in just one game before a back injury sidelined him. Bosa's 2020 campaign ended with an ACL injury during Week 2. Earlier this week, Ford said he expects to be on a pitch count during Sunday's regular-season opener against the Detroit Lions. That's not uncommon for players coming off an injury, and the veteran pass rusher hasn't been an every-down player during his time with the 49ers, even when he was healthier. Instead, Ford mostly went onto the field during situational downs,



Kocurek excited for return of Nick Bosa, Dee Ford after 49ers pass rushers reached 'lowest of lows'

It has been a rigorous offseason for San Francisco 49ers pass rushers Nick Bosa and Dee Ford. Both exited last season early due to injuries. First, a back injury sidelined Ford after Week 1. Then, during Week 2, Bosa exited after suffering a torn ACL on that awful MetLife Stadium field. What followed were two hellacious comebacks. But, the good news is that the end is in sight. Bosa and Ford will retake the field when the Niners open their season against the Detroit Lions at Ford Field on Sunday. Bosa showed off videos during his rehab, and the 2019 NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year looked ahead of schedule during the process. Bosa's coaches never questioned the defensive end's work ethic. They know the pass rusher can accomplish whatever he sets his mind
