Linehan-49ers: No deal yet

Scott Linehan remains the 49ers' top choice for offensive coordinator, but there has been no movement on the contract offer to the former Rams coach. Linehan was scheduled to fly out of the Bay Area this morning. Reached yesterday evening, Linehan said he thought there might be something to report in the "next 24 to 48 hours." The 49ers' goal was to sign Linehan to a contract before his morning flight. No word yet on what might be holding up that deal. There is no indication that Linehan is being considered elsewhere.
