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.

Kyle Shanahan owns a record of 29-35 as the head coach of the San Francisco 49ers. He has won more than six games just once in his four seasons with the team. Yet, despite the losing records, those around the league still hold Shanahan in high esteem due to the coach's creativity as a play designer and play-caller. In his first two seasons as a head coach, Shanahan won a combined 10 games. However, his fortunes appeared to change in 2017, his first season in San Francisco, when the 49ers traded for quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and the team rattled off five consecutive wins to end the season. Expectations were high entering the next season, but the team's hopes were dashed when Garoppolo was lost to a torn ACL. Things seemed to come together in 2019. While the



Jets coach Robert Saleh shares what makes 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan so unique

When it came time for the New York Jets head coach to speak to his team following an early offseason practice, Robert Saleh stood there behind his players, waiting to hear what would be said. Then he remembered ... "Oh shoot, that's me," Saleh said to himself. The story is similar to San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan nearly forgetting to name team captains before his first preseason game. "Honestly, if someone hadn't asked me, I probably would have been sitting there looking out at the coin toss and wondering why no one was out there," Shanahan said on
