Matt Maiocco is reporting that Stanford offensive line coach Tim Drevno met with 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh today to discuss his coaching future. Drevno has worked with Harbaugh since 2007, first as a tight ends coach and this past season as offensive line coach. Rotoworld speculated that Drevno might be an offensive coordinator candidate.
I've posted Drevno's coaching career info after the jump and it entails 18 years of college coaching. He spent four years as offensive coordinator at the University of San Diego, but otherwise has spent his entire career as a position coach. Is that enough to make the leap to NFL offensive coordinator? This OC speculation has no basis in fact at this point as it's entirely possible he'll come to the 49ers to coach the offensive line. Half of his college coaching career has come as an offensive line coach in some form or fashion. He also has four years experience coaching tight ends, so that's also a possible destination.
After his press conference, Jim Harbaugh stated that he might call his own plays at times (I believe it was in a KNBR interview but I can't quite recall). If that's the case, how might this affect his choice for offensive coordinator? I honestly have no idea what to expect at this point in terms of an offensive coordinator. We could see a sort of puppet offensive coordinator, or maybe we'll see a legitimate offensive mind. And we still haven't heard where Mike Johnson will land in all of this. No sarcastic comments please.
