Mike Silver thinks 49ers are done interviewing

New, comments

The San Francisco 49ers wrapped up their interview with Tom Coughlin Wednesday evening, and there are no additional interviews scheduled at this point. Will there be any additional candidates? Mike Silver seems to think the team is done interviewing. Here is specifically what he said in response to someone's question:

If the 49ers are done interviewing, their pool of candidates includes former Eagles head coach Chip Kelly, Bills assistant Anthony Lynn, Bucs offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter, Browns offensive coordinator John DeFilippo, Bengals offensive coordinator Hue Jackson, and former Giants head coach Tom Coughlin. The team reportedly had phone discussions with Mike Shanahan, and Mike Holmgren has expressed interest in the job.

Someone suggested that with Hue Jackson in New York Wednesday and Thursday for his Giants interview, Trent Baalke could stick around and conduct a second interview. Mike Silver tweeted that Baalke has already left New York, so that would be off the table.

Adam Schefter apparently said Dirk Koetter could be deciding between the 49ers and Bucs. I'm waiting for a podcast of his interview on 97.5 The Fanatic. Once I get a transcription I'll post it.

If that is the end of the interview process, who does this end up being? Silver did say "I think", so it is entirely possible they could interview further. But at this point, who knows. I've added another poll to get your thoughts given all the latest developments.
