Update: Dirk Koetter lining up a staff in case he becomes a head coach

Jan 13, 2016 at 5:35 PM--


Update: Pro Football Talk's report of Dirk Koetter becoming the next head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers may have been a bit premature. Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times is saying that Koetter has simply had conversations to line up a staff in case he gets the San Francisco 49ers or Buccaneers head coaching job. Auman says that he has not yet been offered the Buccaneers job.


Koetter served as the team's offensive coordinator in 2015 and interviewed for the 49ers' head coaching vacancy on Saturday, January 9.

This is the original tweet by Pro Football Talk:


Koetter was the head football coach at Boise State University from 1998 to 2000 and at Arizona State University from 2001 to 2006, compiling a career college football record of 66-44.

In 2007, he became the offensive coordinator for the Jacksonville Jaguars and then held the same position for the Atlanta Falcons beginning in 2012. He spent the 2015 season with Tampa Bay.

The Buccaneers finished 20th in points scored (21.4), 5th in total yards (375.9), 17th in passing yards (240.8), and 5th in rushing yards (135.1).

The 49ers have met with Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Hue Jackson, who is now the head coach of the Cleveland Browns, former New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin, former Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly, Buffalo Bills assistant head coach and running backs coach Anthony Lynn, Cleveland Browns offensive coordinator John DeFilippo, and even had discussions with former Denver Broncos and Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan.

49ers head into much-needed bye week after loss to Saints

With all the physical punishment they've taken over the first ten weeks of the season, it's quite possible no NFL team deserves and needs a bye week more than the San Francisco 49ers. The 49ers will now get their much-needed bye week after a 27-13 Week 10 loss to the New Orleans Saints, and with any luck, they'll come back more healthy and refreshed than they've been since early in the season. "They need some rest," 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan said following the loss to the Saints. "They need to get away. We'll have a couple of days just to keep guys loose and moving around a little bit so we don't get too far away from football, but this is as much of a needed rest as a team I've been on." The 49ers have had to deal with key injuries at almost

There has been a lot of speculation surrounding San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo's NFL future. Will he remain in the Bay Area next season? Will the 49ers look to the draft or free agency to move in a different direction? On Tuesday, head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters via Zoom from his home and was asked about Garoppolo's future. "I expect Jimmy to be our starter next year," Shanahan said. "I mean, I expect him to come play with us this year (after he recovers from his ankle injury). We have six games left. We are not out of the playoffs yet. I've been on a team that was 3-6 going into a bye week that ended up winning their division. "I think we have guys on this team capable of finishing this the right way. We've got to do

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

By David Bonilla
Nov 25, 2020

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
