The San Francisco 49ers could have their next head coach before the day is over.
Owner Jed York is in Cincinnati to interview Bengals offensive coordinator Hue Jackson today, and Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that the 49ers could hire Jackson as soon as today.
That meshes with a previous report that Jackson is the clear front-runner for the 49ers job.
Jackson does have other options, as the Browns also want to interview him today. And the 49ers have considered other candidates, including Bills assistant head coach Anthony Lynn, Browns offensive coordinator John DeFilippo, Buccaneers offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter and former Eagles head coach Chip Kelly.
But at the moment, the 49ers and Jackson appear to be a good match, a match that could get made today.
