With their season over, the San Francisco 49ers have begun the search for their next head coach.
The Newark Star-Ledger reports the 49ers have requested permission to interview New York Giants defensive coordinator Perry Fewell.
The 49ers are also looking to hire a general manager who will be responsible for hiring the head coach. So that would suggest they have either decided who their new general manager will be or team president/CEO Jed York is conducting the interview. It’s widely believed that current vice president of player personnel Trent Baalke will take over as the general manager.
The team also reportedly requested permission to interview Oakland Raiders offensive coordinator Hue Jackson.
Elsewhere, the 49ers re-signed the following four practice squad players to future contracts: WRs Kevin Jurovich and Lance Long, OT Nick Howell and RB Xavier Omon.
