The San Francisco Chronicle reports San Francisco 49ers LB Ken Norton is still deciding on his retirement, but he appears to be leaning to returning to the NFL. He has been working out almost daily at the 49ers Santa Clara complex in hopes of getting his back in shape. If he does return, salary cap issues will probably force him out of San Francisco. GM Bill Walsh does not think Norton wil retire and coach Steve Mariucci is not urging him to do so, something the team did do right after the season ended. Reportedly, Steve Bono might take himself out the running for the QB coach job because of the long coaching hours.

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.
