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.

The San Francisco 49ers faced a tough financial decision this offseason. Unable to negotiate a salary reduction with defensive tackle Arik Armstead, who had struggled with injuries in recent years, the team decided to part ways with the longtime Niner. To mitigate the loss of Armstead, the 49ers traded a seventh-round draft pick to the Houston Texans for defensive tackle Maliek Collins. San Francisco's defensive line coach, Kris Kocurek, recently discussed the addition of Collins and what he likes about the defensive lineman. "I really liked him coming out of Nebraska — just the explosion that he can generate through his lower body," Kocurek told

49ers coach sends clear message about kicker Jake Moody

San Francisco 49ers kicker Jake Moody had some crucial misses during his rookie campaign, but he still connected on 21 of his 25 field goal attempts during the regular season. He missed a field goal attempt in each of the 49ers' first two playoff games last season but connected on all three of his attempts in the Super Bowl against the Kansas City Chiefs. Moody briefly set a Super Bowl record with a 55-yard field goal. However, Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker later set a new record, connecting on a 57-yard kick. Moody's postseason miscues were foreshadowed by a shaky Week 18 performance against the Los Angeles Rams when he missed a field goal attempt and an extra point. While that missed extra point was his first of the season, the kicker went on to miss another in

Leonard Floyd was the San Francisco 49ers' biggest offseason addition, providing a pass-rushing presence to complement All-Pro Nick Bosa.

I'm just going to come in and do my job, do my part, and that's to come in to help him affect the game and get pressure on the quarterback." Last month, after reporting for organized team activities, Bosa shared his early impressions of Floyd, saying, "I think he's a super-skilled rusher, good length, and he's more athletic than I even realized. And I think guys like him,
