Alex Marvez reports that Bills assistant HC/RBs coach Anthony Lynn has taken himself out of consideration for the 49ers’ offensive coordinator job.
This comes less than a day after the news that Texans’ LBs coach Mike Vrabel turned down the 49ers’ defensive coordinator position.
New HC Chip Kelly elected parted ways with several coaches including OC Geep Chryst last week, so it will be interesting to see who he hires as his coordinator.
Lynn, 47, was actually a head-coaching candidate who interviewed for the 49ers and Dolphins’ vacancies.
He began his NFL coaching career back in 2000 with the Broncos as a special teams assistant. Since then, he’s coached for a number of teams including the Jaguars, Cowboys, Browns, and Jets before joining Bills as their RBs coach/assistant head coach last year.
We’ll have more regarding the 49ers’ offensive coordinator job as the news is available.
