Maiocco: Hoener likely the next O.C.

Matt Maiocco, the 49ers beat writer for the Press Democrat, writes in his blog that he thinks TE coach Pete Hoener is the most likely candidate to replace Norv Turner as offensive coordinator. According to Maiocco's most recent post, Hoener has more experience as a play caller (though exclusively at the college level) than the rest of the staff combined, was schooled in Turner's system, and spent a lot of time working with both Turner and McCarthy the last 2 seasons. He also confirms that keeping the same offensive scheme is a priority to Nolan.
