Notorious B.C. coach reportedly next up for 49ers

Former Raiders executive Michael Lombardi reports for the National Football Post that the Boston College coach who was fired last week for pursuing the head-coaching job with the New York Jets will interview for the 49ers’ offensive coordinator position.


* * *UPDATE (8 p.m.): Since I posted this intial report from National Football Post, I’ve received information that Jagodzinski is not interviewing for the 49ers job, after all. Click here for the latest update.




Jeff Jagodzinski spent the past two seasons as Boston College head coach, where he compiled a 20-8 record. Athletic director Gene DeFilippo fired Jagodzinski last week. Reportedly, DeFilippo learned that Jagodzinski contacted the Jets about the opening. Then, according to reports, Jagodzinski lied to DeFilippo about it.


Jagodzinski, 45, worked under Mike McCarthy as Green Bay Packers offensive coordinator in 2006. He worked with the Packers from 1999 to 2003 as tight ends coach. He coached the Atlanta Falcons’ offensive line in 2004 and ’05 before rejoining the Packers on McCarthy’s staff.


The Packers ranked ninth in the NFL in yards per game with Jagodzinski as coordinator. The Packers were 22nd in scoring and 23rd with 103.9 yards rushing per game.

UPDATE: Former 49ers coach Mike Nolan was offered the Packers D-coordinator job Saturday night but turned it down, according to a source close to Nolan. Instead, he is joining Josh McDaniels’ staff with the Broncos.
