49ers block Donatell from Interviewing 


It doesn't look like the New Orleans Saints will be allowed to speak with one assistant coach from one of the teams in Super Bowl XLVII in their defensive coordinator search. The San Francisco 49ers have blocked Saints Coach Sean Payton from interviewing Niners secondary coach Ed Donatell for New Orleans' defensive coordinator opening, a source confirmed NFL Network's report.

To me this is a totally classless move by Harbaugh.  Most coaches want their assistants to be successful and will not hold them back from taking the next progression up the chain.

He will not be the DC in San Francisco so eventually he will have to move on.

I think Piers Morgan could coach or be an assistant coach for that defense and look good. That team has had quite a few top picks that they've parlayed into a great defense. Other than Taylor Mays.

Is this because he [DONATELL] was still under contract...or does that really matter...
