Hackett on the radar for 49ers OC

Like Ravens quarterbacks coach Hue Jackson and Jets offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer, Paul Hackett also has been discussed by the 49ers as a candidate for their vacant offensive coordinator position, according to sources. No interviews have been set up, but the 49ers are expected to begin arranging sit downs upon returning from the Senior Bowl today. They interviewed former Boston College coach Jeff Jagodzinski while in Mobile, Ala.

Hackett, 61, currently works as a scout for the Raiders. A UC Davis alum, Hackett has been the head coach at the University of Pittsburgh and at USC. He was the Jets' offensive coordinator from 2001 to 2004 and Tampa Bay's quarterbacks coach from 2005 to 2007. Hackett was reportedly considered for the Raiders' head-coaching position earlier this year.
