Golden Nuggets: The OC Dilemma

Tuesday, January 20th, 2015 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of San Francisco 49ers links from the Internet

Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

It's been a few weeks and the Niners are still looking for their coordinators next season. After the Colts loss on Sunday, the team is reported to talk to Rob Chudzinski for the offensive coordinator position. Another report has the team having Lane Kiffin as the "frontrunner" for the position. I have no idea how that is even possible. Has he ever done anything "with class"? I'm sure Raiders and Tennessee fans would have opinions about that.

Rob Chudzinski is an interesting choice. He is known around the league as a great offensive mind. Could he come in and fix Colin Kaepernick? I don't know, but I sure don't want Lane Kiffin anywhere around Kap. Chudzinski would have to get Kap's confidence back. He would also have to somehow work some magic on Vernon Davis. Hopefully Baalke gives him some weapons in free agency and the draft to fix this offense.

What kind of offense will the Niners run? Tomsula didn't really give any insider info about that. Tomsula is a defensive coach, so it makes sense that the offensive coordinator would have free reign to run whatever offense they so choose. Do they go back to ground and pound or do they spread the field after loading up on some weapons? Either way, the team needs to give that coach hired so whoever is OC can get to work. It's been too long of a wait.
