This is my first fan post, so be nice.
With Bobby Engram leaving, that leaves a vacancy in the coaching staff. One of my dreams has been to see the Greatest Of All Time come back to the 49ers. As a player, Jerry Rice mentored other WR's and made them better. Even though the best known of them, Terrell Owens, was locker room poison, his drive to play has never been questioned. I think that the 49ers, especially with what happened in the NFC title game, should tap into the greatness of Jerry Rice and make him into the WR coach.
So, flight of fancy or a real possibility? Would he be able to become a good coach, or is his greatness limited to what he did on the field?
Would Jerry Rice make a good Wide Receiver Coach for the 49ers?
