49ers | Coaching Update

The Associated Press reports San Francisco 49ers head coach Steve Mariucci has interviewed three candidates for the team's vacant QBs coach job. Mariucci interviewed former NFL QB Steve Bono; former Arizona State offensive coordinator John Pettas; and Purdue QBs coach Greg Olson for the job. He expects to interview more candidates in the next few days. The 49ers also are considering the possibility of hiring another defensive assistant coach. Mariucci would like a veteran coach to work with defensive coordinator Jim Mora Jr. or to take over as secondary coach so Mora will only have to perform one job. According to Mariucci, he hired UCLA assistant Jason Tarver as a quality control coach.
