The 49ers' search for an offensive coordinator continues Monday when the team plans to meet with Broncos offensive coordinator Rick Dennison, a source said.

Dennison, primarily responsible for coordinating the Broncos' running game, fits the 49ers' profile for the job in that his Denver teams have ranked among the NFL leaders in rushing several times over the years. Dennison spent the last 14 seasons under Mike Shanahan, including the last three as coordinator. He coached the offensive line from 2001 to 2007 and special teams from 1997 to 2000.

The 49ers have already interviewed Scott Linehan, Rob Chudzinski and Clyde Christensen for the position. All remain in the running. 

Coach Mike Singletary's desire to build the 49ers' offense around its line and running game made Dennison a person of interest.
