49ers’ hire Steve Logan and Aubrayo Franklin to Coaching Staff


According to CSN Bay Area Insider Matt Maiocco, the San Francisco 49ers will be adding another one of Jim Tomsula’s former coaches in Steve Logan.

Logan worked under Tomsula while in NFL Europe as the Rhein Fire’s offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach in 2006 while then working with the Tampa Bay Bucs from 2009 to 2011 serving as the teams’ running backs coach.

The 49ers who are still without an offensive coordinator may settle on Logan considering that Rob Chudzinski opted to stay in Indianapolis. And with no news that New England Patriots TE coach Brian Daboll is in the running, it looks to me that the 49ers may give Logan a shot despite his exact role yet to be determined.

The 49ers were not done there however as they added former 49ers NT Aubrayo Franklin to the team’s defensive coaching staff according to Sacramento Bee’s Matt Barrows.

Franklin, who played for the 49ers from 2007-2010 while being the anchor under Greg Manusky’s 3-4 scheme was so good the team opted to slap the franchise tag on him in 2010.

However, that would be Franklin’s best year as he turned journey-man with one-year stints with the Saints, Chargers and Colts.

Franklin’s exact role with the team has yet to be determined but it won’t be the vacant defensive line coach as the 49ers want a coach with experience to fulfill that role.

With the 49ers continuing to fill out their coaching staff, it will be interesting to see who’s next as the coaches that have been hired have been all over the place.
