Robert Saleh interviewing with 49ers Friday


Earlier on Friday, we shared word that Falcons defensive passing game coordinator Jerome Henderson is interviewing with the 49ers about their defensive coordinator opening.

Henderson has been linked with the job for the last week, although word is that he’d be splitting the responsibilities with former Jaguars linebackers coach Robert Saleh. He’s splitting the interview time on Friday for starters.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Saleh will also be interviewing with the 49ers on Friday as they try to lock down the top of their defensive coaching staff.

Saleh spent the last three years as the Jaguars linebackers coach and was thought to be headed to the Chargers in the same position after Gus Bradley took the defensive coordinator job in San Diego. The chance to move up to the coordinator level, even with shared duties, would represent a step further up the ladder, however, and it probably won’t be long before we know if the Henderson/Saleh duo will be running the defense in Santa Clara.

  1. Any truth to the rumor that when you eat lunch with Jed York his fork has a cork on the end of it?

  2. I resent the fact that I am apparently the only person living west of the Mississippi that hasn’t interviewed with the Niners.

    I am free on Tuesday.

  3. Niners hiring execs and coaches in bulk at every position. These guys going to be tripping over each other, finishing each other’s sentences, and fighting over the desk chair. Plus they’re still playing Defective Chip and Jimmy the Sausage.
