Donatell's contract with the Bears is set to expire this offseason after four years with the team.
Philosophical differences are keeping Kubiak from joining his former Denver Broncos under incoming head coach Vic Fangio, even though Kubiak is the team's former head coach and would fit quite well where he used to be. He left a cozy collegiate position to work in Atlanta under coach Dan Quinn and offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan. "I find this opportunity for Rich very similar to when I first became a defensive coordinator many years ago, and he is ready to take this step in his career".
This is Scangarello's first National Football League coordinating job, though he's held the role at five colleges over his 21-year coaching career.
First up for Scangarello is finalizing the rest of the offensive coaching staff. And also discusses the offensive line coach Mike Munchak and defensive line coach and returning, Bill Kollar. Back from 2013-14, he was the assistant wide receiver and quality control coach for the Vikings.
Google Assistant finally makes its way to Sonos speakers
The company has always been pushing to make its digital assistant a central point of its product ecosystem, for one. That is the fact that the Google Assistant is coming to the Sonos One and Sonos Beam, later this year .
Other 49ers assistants have garnered interest from other teams for possible coordinator jobs, but San Francisco denied requests to interview.
While he will have the title of defensive coordinator in Denver, Fangio will be the defensive play-caller.
Donatell has worked on Fangio's staffs for the previous eight years as his defensive backs coach, and he interviewed for the Bears' defensive coordinator vacancy that went to Chuck Pagano. Rodgers has been instrumental in the development of Pro Bowl defensive end Akiem Hicks and nose tackle Eddie Goldman, along with rookie defensive end Bilal Nichols, a fifth-round pick who started five of the final six games. There was a report he would be rejoining Adam Gase with the New York Jets before the 49ers hired him.
The Minnesota Vikings added a second father/son combo to the coaching staff today. Solomon Thomas, the No. 3 overall pick in the 2017 draft, has not developed into a significant contributor.
