A report Tuesday indicated the 49ers had requested to interview Commanders defensive backs coach Chris Harris. As it turns out, according to Albert Breer of, Harris completed his interview for the 49ers’ defensive coordinator job Tuesday.

The 49ers are interviewing candidates to replace DeMeco Ryans, who has left for the Texans’ head coaching job.

Harris is expected to join the Titans as their cornerbacks coach and defensive pass game coordinator if the 49ers don’t hire him, Breer adds. The Bears reportedly also have interest in hiring Harris.

Harris has been with the Commanders since 2020, and he previously coached for the Jaguars and Bears. He also spent seven years in the NFL as a player with the Bears, Panthers, Lions and Jaguars.

  1. Which Chris Harris? The one that matters is the one that played for the Broncos and Chargers.

  2. Vic Fangio (Miami Dolphins DC) says good luck 49ers fans who were convinced I was joining the team.

  3. Teams should be interviewing Kam Curl because the Commanders secondary was a mess whenever he wasn’t in the game.

  4. Really not getting the fascination with this guy as a DC. Very avg secondary coach. His DB’s looked lost at times during games, and the communication while they were on the field was all over the place. Good luck with that 9’ers.
