Adam Schefter:

Packers and HC Matt LaFleur were denied permission to interview/hire younger brother, Mike LaFleur, the 49ers’ WR/passing-game specialist. 49ers told Packers, Browns and Vikings no on talking to Mike LaFleur. Also rejected interview requests on Mike McDaniel and Rich Scangarello.

49ers also denied their qb coach an interview to become denvers oc. 49ers are becoming assistant coaching purgatory.

That's on Capers and Ball - not Whitt

So in your world, the secondary coach apparently has not responsible for the performance of the secondary.  That's cool.

I'm very surprised at Shanahan's dictatorship approach. I expected Shanahan to "compromise" by letting one coordinator go and make the other one full time coordinator so that way everyone is happy.

From his point of view he's probably thinking "I've started a program with long term goals and I hired you to help me build it, you have committed to me to see it though. Leaving before we have not gotten to where we need to be is not acceptable. Stay, show your original commitment to make this program succeed and then you shall be rewarded"

Its hard to argue against that viewpoint. They are under contract after all.

Letting assistants leave far too easily is just undoing all the hard work and progress they previously done and is a sure way to a losing team quickly if you don't adequately replace them and of course the quickest way to be fired for the Head coach. He has to think about himself too when making such decisions.

Yes but if those assistants have better positions and growth opportunities on the table... like I posted earlier I get guarding against raiding staffs but to block a QB coach from an OC position? It’s alittle extreme.

Like I get blocking coordinators from coordinator positions. Bill gets raided every year in New England. Had GB gone with McDaniels he’d be out two coordinators this off season, (I know Flores isnt a coordinator in title but he does coordinator duties). Is Bill the only coach that should be forced to find new talent in coaching?

Its bad for coaching development too and allowing new talent to develop. Heck one of the news items on ESPN during this hiring season was why aren’t there more young African Americans as these offensive gurus. Seeing as that’s the trend and likely the fastest way to a HC job... mcVay, Shanahan, LaFleur, kingsbury, Riley, Taylor, etc. Part of it is these coaches blocking their assistants and not being force to find new coaching talent. So much like the packers old staff... it sits and never always new talent to be searched for.

Yes. That's exactly what I meant.

So in your world the secondary coach can run whatever plays and scheme he wants ? That's cool

Kubiak would/could be ideal.  OC and mentor for MLF in HC duties, game management, organization, play calling, etc.

First it was lack of talent, and now it's the scheme.  Sounds like you are prepared to blame everyone and everything but the coach who was actually responsible for the players development. This is precisely how you end up with under performing position coaches for years too long.

Kubiak would also give us another old man who is overly self conscious about his hair. A la Dom Capers.

(there’s no way Kubiaks hair is that dark and without gray, at his age.

altho no matter how often Kubiak colors his hair, it will never beat Doms hairpiece in my mind)

Probably give him the opportunity to go elsewhere.  No reason to keep him in a situation where neither side is happy.

Or perhaps we are going to use a different blocking scheme so Campen is going elsewhere where he is more comfortable?

I like Dorrell for receivers coach. I sure wouldn't mind Kubiak as OC but I gotta believe he will want to call plays and Im thinking MiLF is not going to give up playcalling.
