As the San Francisco 49ers and new head coach Chip Kelly work to put together the team's coaching staff for the 2016 season, we'll update the names of the coaches that the team is reportedly interested in or reportedly contacted, interviewed, or acquired for each position. Please note that these are simply the reported candidates by various media sources and that nothing is official until the 49ers themselves make the announcement.

The latest is that the 49ers have hired Jim O'Neil for their vacant defensive coordinator position and former Dolphins RBs coach Jeff Nixon to coach tight ends. These moves fill the major pieces of Kelly's coaching staff.

How well do the 2021 49ers stack up to the 2019 team? Lately I have listened to some podcasts and read some tweets comparing the current San Francisco 49ers team (2021) to the 2019 team that fell just short of winning the Super Bowl.

ESPN recently asked its panel of "experts" — Jeremy Fowler, Louis Riddick, Seth Walder, and Field Yates — to rate each NFL team's quarterback situation, remaining (non-QB) roster, drafting ability, front office, and coaching. Using those ratings, it then ranked all 32 NFL teams on how well they are positioned for the future, creating a power ranking based on projection over the next three seasons. The Kansas City Chiefs came in at No. 1 with an overall score of 88.5. The Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers came in at No. 2 with a score of 88.1.
