Dirk Koetter on 49ers coach search: “None of that matters at this point”

Oct 19, 2016 at 10:01 AM--


Following the 2015 season and the firing of Jim Tomsula, the San Francisco 49ers interviewed a lot of coaches for their vacant head coaching position before deciding on Chip Kelly. One of those coaches was Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter, who is now the head coach of that squad and the 49ers' opponent on Sunday.

Today, Koetter was asked about the interaction he had with the 49ers organization. He didn't really seem to want to go into details about it. "I appreciate the question, but none of that matters at this point," Koetter said. "It doesn't do any good for me to talk about that. I'm the coach of the Bucs and Chip's the coach of the 49ers. Everything works out for a reason, the way it's supposed to work out."

Koetter interviewed with the 49ers on January 9, two days after the 49ers interviewed Kelly for the head coach job. While Koetter had reportedly impressed 49ers management during his interview, the 49ers hired Kelly on January 14.

Koetter's 2-3 Buccaneers face Kelly's 1-5 49ers on Sunday, October 23.

When Frank Gore speaks, San Francisco 49ers fans listen. The man is an icon in the hearts of The Faithful. The former NFL running back, who remains the 49ers' all-time leading rusher, has a lot of love for his first NFL team too, always keeping up with new developments and often sharing his opinion on the team he admires most. Gore voiced his opinion on Friday, responding to a tweet asking fans to name the best wide receiver in the NFL. Gore's answer? Deebo Samuel. Not only did he call Samuel the best wide receiver, but he took it further, calling him the "best player all-around" in the NFL (h/t The Spun). That is some high praise from the future Hall

Undrafted free agents play an integral role these days for every NFL team, with the San Francisco 49ers certainly being among the teams to have gotten some significant contributions from the undrafted players they've discovered over the past few years. The 49ers haven't hit on all their draft picks during the Lynch-Shanahan era at a level they would have liked, but their undrafted free agent signings have played a large enough role to help make their roster one of the most talented in the NFL. Here's a look at ten undrafted players the 49ers signed and developed during the Lynch-Shanahan era who went on to make a mark on Sundays. 10.

Why Trey Lance will help 49ers receiver Brandon Aiyuk reach his full potential

Don't be surprised to see Brandon Aiyuk breakout with Trey Lance under center in 2022 for the San Francisco 49ers. Just when many of us expected the Arizona State product to take a significant step forward in year two, he clearly began the year as an afterthought in the 49ers' offense. As a rookie, Aiyuk proved to be the perfect complement to star receiver Deebo Samuel and tight end George Kittle hauling in 60 receptions, for 748 yards, and five touchdowns on 96 targets. Aiyuk also scored a pair of rushing touchdowns on six carries. Last season, the 24-year-old Aiyuk only had 13 receptions on
