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.

Today's practice will be very telling. Everyone wants to know which quarterback will head onto the field with the offense when the San Francisco 49ers take on the division-leading Arizona Cardinals on Sunday afternoon. Will it be Jimmy Garoppolo, or will the team go with the rookie, Trey Lance? Garoppolo sustained a calf injury during Week 4's loss to the Seattle Seahawks and has not practiced this week. The 49ers' final practice will be this afternoon, and Garoppolo told head coach Kyle Shanahan that he wants to "give it a go." "Jimmy is a tough competitor," general manager John Lynch said this morning on KNBR's Murph & Mac show. "And Jimmy was
