San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator Mike Johnson was out of football in 2008, but he spent the year studying the spread attack in college football, reports the Sacramento Bee's Matt Barrows. 49ers QB Alex D. Smith and WR Michael Crabtree both excelled in college when running the spread. According to TE Vernon Davis, Johnson seemed like a more creative guy than previous offensive coordinator Jimmy Raye, who was fired Monday, Sept. 27. "He's a little different than Jimmy Raye," said Davis. "He's a little more ... He's seems when I talk to him and when I'm around him, he seems to be creative. He seems like he's a creative guy, and he seems like he'll take chances, a lot of chances. And ... he's young and he's hungry. And I think it's a great opportunity for him."
