Golden Nuggets: Defensive Coach Interview Stage

NFL: Indianapolis Colts at Carolina Panthers Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports

After interviewing the offensive candidates for the head coach opening, the San Francisco 49ers have moved on to the defensive coach interviews. They interviewed Carolina defensive coordinator Sean McDermott on Tuesday and are scheduled to interview Miami defensive coordinator Vance Joseph. Before the McDermott interview, the 49ers had interviewed strictly offensive coaches. Josh McDaniels, Kyle Shanahan, Anthony Lynn, and Sean McVay had their interviews over the last week.

The 49ers may be interviewing defensive coaches, but it seems like they will hire an offensive coach. They are doing their due diligence in these interviews, but the 49ers will need a coach to groom and develop their next quarterback. That is why the names McDaniels, Shanahan, and McVay are the ones that seem to be leading the candidate pack. All 3 of these coaches have success in helping quarterbacks develop.

Louis Riddick, who has made it publicly known of his like of the 49ers GM position, had his interview on Tuesday. Louis is coming from an analyst position at ESPN and before that, he was a director of pro personnel with Philly and Washington. He has also made it known that he likes Josh McDaniels and a Riddick/McDaniels pairing would be interesting in Santa Clara. A roster that needs rebuilding and $87 million in cap space would allow the incoming GM/head coach a lot of ability to fix this roster.
