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.

Rapoport: 49ers send clear message to teams inquiring about Brandon Aiyuk

Ian Rapoport didn't offer much of an update on the ongoing contract negotiations between the San Francisco 49ers and their standout wide receiver, Brandon Aiyuk. However, the NFL insider emphasized one thing: The team is not entertaining trade discussions at this juncture. Reacting to Aiyuk's decision to unfollow the 49ers on Instagram, Rapoport couldn't help but chuckle at the latest development. This practice has become commonplace among players who are unhappy with their contract situations. Wide receiver Deebo Samuel similarly took this action in 2022 before requesting to be traded just before the draft. Things have yet to escalate that far with Aiyuk, but Rapoport sees his

With the 2024 NFL Draft less than a week away, it's common for the rumor mill to start churning, especially with players who are actively seeking a new contract. It was just two short years ago that WR Deebo Samuel requested a trade from the San Francisco 49ers prior to draft day, only for cooler heads to prevail and eventually agree to a new deal. Now, it's WR Brandon Aiyuk's turn to try and get paid and rumors surfaced over the weekend that he too would request to be dealt. While that report was quickly shot down by his agent, there's still a lot of discussion about Aiyuk's future and if other teams will come calling on draft night.
