A third team with a head coaching vacancy is interested in talking to Giants defensive coordinator Perry Fewell.
Yesterday we noted that the Browns and Panthers had both contacted the Giants about interviewing Fewell. Now Mike Garafolo of the Star-Ledger reports that the 49ers have asked for permission to speak with Fewell as well.
Giants coach Tom Coughlin hired Fewell as his defensive coordinator in 2010. Prior to that Fewell had spent four seasons in Buffalo, first as defensive coordinator and then as interim head coach for the last seven games of the 2009 season.
Before becoming the Bills’ defensive coordinator, Fewell was a defensive backs coach in Jacksonville, St. Louis and Chicago.
