Anthony Lynn was passed over for the 49ers’ head-coaching job, but he might end up in San Francisco anyway.
Lynn, the Bills’ running backs coach and assistant head coach, is interviewing for the 49ers’ offensive coordinator position, Alex Marvez of FOX Sports reports.
San Francisco head coach Chip Kelly has no obvious connections to Lynn; the two have never worked together and Lynn’s background is mostly in power running offense. If Kelly is considering Lynn, it could be that Kelly recognizes some changes are needed in his own offensive approach.
Prior to joining the Bills last year, Lynn spent six years on the Jets’ staff, two years on the Browns’ staff, two years on the Cowboys’ staff, two years on the Jaguars’ staff and three years on the Cowboys’ staff. He was an NFL running back for six seasons with the Broncos and 49ers.
