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.

Jets coach Robert Saleh shares what makes 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan so unique

When it came time for the New York Jets head coach to speak to his team following an early offseason practice, Robert Saleh stood there behind his players, waiting to hear what would be said. Then he remembered ... "Oh shoot, that's me," Saleh said to himself. The story is similar to San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan nearly forgetting to name team captains before his first preseason game. "Honestly, if someone hadn't asked me, I probably would have been sitting there looking out at the coin toss and wondering why no one was out there," Shanahan said on



2019 49ers vs. 2021 49ers, Part 1 (Offense)

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. I find the comparison interesting. And since many people quickly assume the 2021 49ers are not as good as the 2019 team, I wanted to take a look for myself. So as we prepare for the team to report on Tuesday, let's compare the two teams, position by position. For the purpose of this very scientific experiment, we will assume everyone is healthy (even though that never happens). Let's start on offense. The defensive comparison is coming soon.

Some have said this year's team will be better than the 2019 team, while others have suggested that won't be the case. In our very scientific investigation, we determined the 2021 offense will be better than the 2019 offense. Today, we will take a look at the defenses.

CB K'Waun Williams labeled as 49ers' secret weapon by Bleacher Report

K'Waun Williams is one of the best nickel cornerbacks in the NFL and a vital component of the San Francisco 49ers defense. There was some concern that he might be among several players slated to depart for other teams this offseason. However, Williams was re-signed to a one-year deal and, for the most part, San Francisco's brain trust managed to keep the team mostly intact. When healthy, Williams has proved his value. He showed that in 2019 during one of his best campaigns, posting an 80.3 overall Pro Football Focus grade during his over 700 snaps in the regular season. During the ensuring playoff run, Williams allowed just 66 receiving yards in three playoff games. Recently, Bleacher Report compiled a list of every NFL team's "secret weapon", where
