49ers hire Dana Bible as senior advisor

Feb 17, 2016 at 3:24 PM--


According to ESPN's Adam Caplan, the San Francisco 49ers have hired Dana Bible as a senior advisor under new head coach Chip Kelly's staff.


Bible and Kelly are close friends and have often bounced ideas off of each other in the past. "Kelly and Dana Bible liked to talk football. Their conversations always drifted toward X's and O's, and the animated, Northeastern-bred coaches would often act out the plays they crafted in their heads," said a Philly.com article by Jeff McLane in September of 2015.

Bible has experience as a college assistant and NFL coordinator. He served as the quarterbacks coach for the Cincinnati Bengals from 1990 until 1992 and was the offensive coordinator for the Philadelphia Eagles in 1998. Among the college ranks, Bible served as the offensive coordinator at Boston College, Miami of Ohio, NC State, and Stanford. He was even the interim head coach for NC State in 2012.

Bible has coached a few prominent names throughout his career, most notably Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan, who he coached at Boston College.

49ers' 2022 schedule among the toughest in strength-of-schedule rankings

The NFL will announce the entire 2022 slate of matchups on Thursday night. That's when we'll learn the dates and times for all 272 regular-season games. However, we've known the opponents for a while now. If the San Francisco 49ers are to return to the playoffs for the third time in four years, it won't be an easy road. San Francisco's upcoming opponents went 154-135 in 2021. The team's schedule will include seven matchups against opponents coming off a playoff appearance (Rams twice, Cardinals twice, Chiefs, Buccaneers, Raiders). Those opponents had a total winning percentage of .533 in 2021, which is good enough to tie with the Kansas City Chiefs as the fifth-toughest schedule



Richard Sherman: I think Jimmy Garoppolo will be with the 49ers during training camp

We know Jimmy Garoppolo isn't going anywhere until he fully recovers from his offseason shoulder surgery. Most have accepted that. The San Francisco 49ers aren't releasing him. By not trading him by the end of the draft, the 49ers showed they are willing to wait out the situation and see if a trade partner emerges after late June or early July, when the team expects the quarterback to start throwing again. Nick Wagoner of ESPN recently stated that once Garoppolo recovers, the 49ers will again get on the phones and try to generate interest in the 30-year-old quarterback. Of course, that's not
