S.P. says DC search to pick up after Superbowl.

S.P. says DC search to pick up after Superbowl. 


Link

A list of some candidates that will be coaching the game.



Niners linebackers coach Jim Leavitt

It’s hard to argue with the job Leavitt has done with the Niners’ linebacking corps, but it also doesn’t hurt when you have linebackers like Patrick Willis, NaVorro Bowman and Aldon Smith.

It’s also probably not a coincidence, though, that Bowman has become a major factor in the last two seasons under Leavitt’s tutelage. And it’s also probably not a coincidence how Smith wasn’t a stand-up linebacker in college, and yet has become a premier pass rusher right away with Leavitt’s help. Leavitt is only in his second season in San Francisco after spending the previous 13 seasons as South Florida’s head coach.

Ravens linebacker coach Ted Monachino

Baltimore defensive coordinator Dean Pees said Monachino is “absolutely” ready to become a defensive coordinator in the NFL, telling the Baltimore Sun, “He knows the (3-4) scheme from front to back and knows a lot of the game, not just his position. He knows the entire front and how the coverages coordinate with the front. Tremendous coach."

Monachino is in his first year as the Ravens linebackers coach after serving as the team’s outside linebackers coach for the previous two seasons. Before Monachino joined the Ravens, he spent four seasons in a variety of roles in Jacksonville eventually ending up the defensive line coach for two seasons. He, like Donatell, has been linked as a candidate for the Eagles defensive coordinator position.

Browns linebackers coach Billy Davis

Davis may seem like a name out of left field, but a league source said his name has been passed on to the Saints as someone the team should take a look at in the process. Davis has reportedly already interviewed for the Eagles defensive coordinator position so he’s drawing attention.

Davis has twice served as a defensive coordinator in the NFL – Arizona (2009-2010) and San Francisco (2005-2006). Obviously, Davis is someone who knows and understands a 3-4 defensive scheme. Davis has been the linebackers coach in Cleveland the past two seasons.

And the wild card … former Cowboys defensive coordinator Rob Ryan

It can’t be a good sign for Ryan to have landed the Rams defensive coordinator job and then the team essentially said, ‘Whoops! We made a mistake,” as St. Louis withdrew the offer. Ryan is a known commodity, hence, why Saints fans continue to bring up his name in the Saints defensive coordinator conversation. Ryan is probably a longshot to land the Saints job.

The scary thing is that you have to look at the talent on the 49er team...while a coach can only give you the information needed...the player is the one who has to execute...that's why it's so important to have the players needed to make the 3-4 system work in whomever we bring in...I believe there's pieces to fill in the puzzle...another DLineman and a LBer would help solidify the front 7...

I just hope that we get someone who can motivate and develop talent.  I'm tired of having high defensive draft picks coming in and underperforming.

of the 4 mentioned in this post, I would rather have Davis. Sure wouldn't want Ryan, although he would probably be a fans favorite..

I also would like to see Leavitt. I wouldn't mind seeing DarrenPerry come home either.

I'm not too crazy on Rob Ryan. We just got rid of a loud mouthed DC last year.
