The San Francisco 49ers coaching search continues to putter along as the team tries to round out the offensive side of the ball. Albert Breer added some new information to what we already knew:
Also, Ronald Curry in the mix to be elevated to WRs coach with 49ers, and being pursued by Florida. So lots in flux for Tomsula on offense.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) January 28, 2015
On the Bicknell news, I'm trying to find out more about him. He joined the Philadelphia Eagles in 2013 when Chip Kelly came on board. Prior to that, he coached Buffalo wide receivers in 2012, and tight ends in 2010 and 2011. He came to Buffalo from Kansas City where he coached tight ends in 2009, and the offensive line in 2007 and 2008. That marked the start of his NFL career. He got his coaching start in 1993 coaching safeties at Boston College. Over the next 12 years, he coached in college for six years, and in NFL Europe for six years.
The Curry news is going to be something to track because of the freedom a college job would offer him. The 49ers can reject other NFL teams interview requests, but if Curry wanted to, he could resign from his 49ers job and head back to college with no strings attached. As Breer pointed out, Curry is in the mix for the wide receivers coaching position with the 49ers. If he decided a job at Florida would be a better option, well, that would not exactly be a good thing for the perception of this coaching staff.
