It appears the Rams aren’t the only NFC West team interested in talking to Browns offensive coordinator John DeFilippo.
DeFilippo is expected to speak to the Rams about their offensive coordinator job early next week in a meeting that will reportedly come after he speaks to the 49ers. Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that DeFilippo will meet with the team on Friday.
The 49ers will have an offensive coordinator need at some point in the near future, but discussions on that front will probably wait until they have a head coach in place to establish some guidelines about what he’s looking for in the position. With just one year as a coordinator under his belt, DeFilippo hasn’t been on the head coaching radar but it wouldn’t be the first time that a team took the interview process as an opportunity to speak to a well-regarded young assistant that might not be a leading contender for the job.
The 49ers reportedly interviewed Chip Kelly and Bills assistant head coach/running backs coach Anthony Lynn this week.
