Mora denies rumor that he’s on the Niners’ radar

There’s a rumor making the rounds that the 49ers will augment their search for a new G.M. via a smattering of men who currently are working in an NFL front office with a coaching search that includes a guy who isn’t currently coaching an NFL team.

As the rumor goes, former Falcons and Seahawks coach Jim Mora will interview for the job that will be vacated later today, after Jim Tomsulo surrenders the “interim” label and gets back to worrying about when and if he’ll be fired with the rest of the staff.

Mora says the rumor is incorrect.

“Not even close,” Mora told PFT.  “Just here to do their game for FOX.”

Mora previously served as defensive coordinator of the 49ers before becoming the head coach in Atlanta.  He currently works for NFL Network and FOX.
