The Browns did some investigating of San Francisco 49ers assistants as did some other teams. But in the end, Jim Harbaugh’s staff will remain, virtually the same. Here is a look at some 49ers’ assistants who could get interest in 2015:
Offensive coordinator Greg Roman: He interviewed in Minnesota and at Penn State this month. If the 49ers have another strong season in 2014, I can see Roman being a hot candidate.
Defensive coordinator Vic Fangio: It was reported Washington asked permission to talk to Fangio, but it never interviewed him. Fangio is a fantastic defensive coordinator. He is smart and timely, and he interacts well with his players. He deserves more interest.
Defensive line coach Jim Tomsula: He is a wild card. Tomsula hasn’t been a defensive coordinator in the NFL, but he is well respected. Minnesota interviewed him, and the Browns considered interviewing him. His name will likely be hot next year.
