The 49ers have interviewed seven individuals for the club’s offensive-coordinator position, but those seven have dwindled to four possibilities.
The Chargers today hired Rob Chudzinski as assistant head coach/tight ends. Chudzinkski interviewed for the 49ers’ job on Jan. 10.
He was initially considered a top candidate for the job, but one of the questions was whether he might become an immediate head-coaching candidate if the club experienced success.
Dan Reeves, Hue Jackson and Jeff Jagodzinski interviewed with coach Mike Singletary and GM Scot McCloughan last week. It is not known if a job offer has been made.
