Pat’s Update: and we have another departure from the 49ers
T.C. McCartney interviewed with the Broncos today and will be hired as their QBs coach, per source.— Nicki Jhabvala (@NickiJhabvala) January 29, 2019
The NFL isn’t done poaching coaches from the San Francisco 49ers. Denver Broncos beat writer Mike Klis reports that the Broncos are interviewing 49ers offensive assistant T.C. McCartney for their vacant quarterbacks coach role. This would be a huge promotion for McCartney who has worked as an offensive assistant for the last four years.
While the connection to offensive coordinator Rich Scangarello is obvious, Klis made a great point that McCartney has connections to Colorado sports in general. His father, Sal Aunese was a University of Colorado Boulder quarterback and his grandfather, Bill McCartney was a coach for the same school.
From the Broncos it makes sense also. They hired Rich Scangarello as offensive coordinator and now Scangarello is looking to fill out his position coaches. McCartney has worked as an offensive assistant for four years, so it may be time for him to get a step up in his coaching career.
No job offers yet, but the 49ers might have another vacancy.
