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.

Rapid Reaction to the 49ers' 24-20 Loss to the Cardinals

1) The Cardinals are good While the 49ers should have been able to get a win today, let's not lose sight of the improvements made by the Arizona Cardinals. DeAndre Hopkins dominated the secondary today with 14 catches for 151 yards. He was open a lot and the 49ers were not able to give much of an answer for his play today. Kyler Murray ran for 91 yards, passed for 230 yards, and had two total touchdowns. The ground game was good, their defense was scrappy, and their playcalling was not predictable. San Francisco had a lot of opportunities, which I'll go into, but the performance by the Cardinals should not be discounted. They are a playoff contender and will not be an easy out this year. They still have weaknesses, especially if you can force Murray to throw

49ers Lost in Loss to Cardinals

Wake up, Kyle Shanahan. As of September 14th 2020, Super Bowl 55 looks like a distant pipe dream. Yesterday, the San Francsico 49ers fell to the Arizona Cardinals in the opener of the 2020 NFL season. After getting off to a blazing start, jumping out to a 10-0 lead, the 49ers couldn't keep the heat on and lost at home to a team that accumulated only 5 wins in 2019. This Cardinals team isn't special. Often fans can find solace in a loss by heaping praise upon the opponent. Not today. Arizona signal caller QB Kyler Murray will be praised in the media for his efforts, but in reality, Murray was inaccurate often and relied heavily on newly acquired star WR DeAndre Hopkins to carry him through this one. Murray threw the ball 40 times for 230 yards, registering a measly 5.8 yards
