Jagodzinski would bring top lieutenant

MOBILE, AL -- If Jeff Jagodzinski became the 49ers' offensive coordinator, he would bring Steve Logan with him as quarterbacks coach. Jagodzinski and Logan have known each other since the early 1990s and are considered a package deal. That sort of tandem is attractive to the 49ers, who are looking for continuity at offensive coordinator. The thinking is that if the coordinator were to leave for another job - Jagodzinski notably interviewed for the Jets head coaching this year - the quarterbacks coach would step into the position. Jagodzinski worked under Logan when Logan was the head coach at East Carolina University. Most recently, Logan was Jagodzinski's offensive coordinator at Boston College. Logan has also worked with 49ers defensive line coach Jim Tomsula in NFL Europe with Berlin Thunder.

The 49ers met with Jagodzinski yesterday evening. They do not have any more interviews planned in Mobile, although they could continue their search for an offensive coordinator in Santa Clara. Mike Singletary is believed to be interested in Ravens quarterbacks coach Hue Jackson, although he has yet to have an interview with the team. The 49ers also have discussed Jets offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer, but they believe he ultimately will remain with the Jets. New Jets coach Rex Ryan is trying to persuade Schottenheimer to stay with the team. Schottenheimer, however, is disenchanted with the team after it passed him over for the head job.
