Dennison meeting with 49ers about O.C. position

Former Broncos offensive coordinator/offensive line coach Rick Dennison made his flight and is in Santa Clara meeting with 49ers coach Mike Singletary and GM Scot McCloughan about the team’s vacant offensive coordinator job.

Dennison will not be retained on new Broncos coach Josh McDaniels’ staff. Dennison worked 14 seasons for former Broncos coach Mike Shanahan.

 

The hiring of McDaniels had nothing to do with Dennison’s interview with the 49ers. The interview had been set up for several days.

 

The 49ers are likely to interview at least one more candidate for the O.C. job.

Meanwhile, McDaniels has reportedly hired former 49ers coach Mike Nolan to be his defensive coordinator. Nolan recently interviewed with the Packers, but the feeling is that GM Ted Thompson was less-than enthusiastic about Nolan joining Mike McCarthy’s staff.

 

UPDATE (4:50 p.m.): A source close to Nolan disputed the above sentence about Thompson being lukewarm on Nolan. Nolan was offered the Packers job Saturday night, I was told. Obviously, he turned it down.
