So long Mangini? 49ers offer Mike Vrabel the defensive coordinator job

Jan 20, 2016 at 1:57 PM--


ESPN's Dianna Marie Russini is reporting that the 49ers have offered Mike Vrabel, who is currently the linebackers coach for the Houston Texans, the defensive coordinator job in San Francisco. The team is awaiting an answer.


After his playing days with the Pittsburgh Steelers, New England Patriots, and Kansas City Chiefs, Vrabel went on to coach the linebackers at Ohio State in 2011. In 2012, he started coaching the defensive line. Then in 2014, he became the linebackers coach for the Texans.

Eric Mangini held the job on Jim Tomsula's staff last season. He, along with Vrabel, was even interviewed for the position on Chip Kelly's staff. In 2015, the 49ers defense finished 18th in points allowed, 29th in total yards allowed, 27th in passing yards allowed, and 29th in rushing yards allowed.

Monday saw the exile of much of Tomsula's staff. However, Kelly confirmed today that running backs coach Tom Rathman would remain with the team.

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters on Monday. Lynch revealed that the team plans to exercise the fifth-year option on offensive tackle Mike McGlinchey, keeping him signed through the 2022 season. The move will guarantee the offensive lineman $10.88 million in 2022. San Francisco drafted McGlinchey out of Notre Dame with the No. 9 overall pick in 2018. He earned a 79.7 overall grade and a 91.3 run-blocking grade from Pro Football Focus in 2020, both of which were career-highs. However, the offensive lineman's 58.3 pass-blocking grade was a career-low. "I think there's a lot of things I did really well all year,"

NFL Network analyst Michael Robinson is a fan of the San Francisco 49ers selecting quarterback Trey Lance with the No. 3 overall pick. Many people are, considering there were rampant rumors that the team might seemingly reach by selecting Mac Jones. Lance has the potential to be one of the toughest quarterbacks to defend in the coming years, and Robinson feels the young passer will eventually elevate head coach Kyle Shanahan's offense to another level. "Look, first of all, the skill set of Trey Lance takes this Kyle Shanahan offense over the top to a championship level, to heights I don't think Kyle Shanahan has seen," Robinson said on NFL Network (h/t
