Former B.C. coach will interview for O.C. job

Former Boston College coach Jeff Jagodzinski will interview with 49ers coach Mike Singletary and GM Scot McCloughan for the coordinator job this evening in Mobile, Ala.

According to sources, Jagodzinski has been expressing to the 49ers his interest in the position. There was a National Football Post report last week that Jagodzinski would interview for the position, but the 49ers did not speak with him formally before offering the job to Scott Linehan.

 

When Linehan turned down the 49ers’ job offer, Jagodzinski came into play. Jagodzinski and McCloughan know each other from their time together with the Packers. Jagodzinski was the Packers’ tight ends coach from 1999 to 2003. McCloughan was a college scout with the Packers.

 

Jagodzinski was Packers offensive coordinator in 2006 before moving on to become Boston College‘s head coach. He was fired after interviewing for the New York Jets’ head-coaching job against the wishes of Boston College athletic director Gene DeFilippo.
