Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area confirms that former Buccaneers GM Mark Dominik has been discussed as an option for the 49ers but no official interview has been scheduled.
Maiocco says that it’s possible the 49ers could turn their attention to Dominik depending on how interviews go with Cardinals executive Terry McDonough and Vikings assistant GM George Paton this weekend.
According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, there’s a “lot of scuttlebutt” among personnel executives at the Senior Bowl that former Buccaneers GM Mark Dominik could end up with the 49ers.
La Canfora doesn’t say what position Dominik is or could be considered for.
The 49ers are scheduled to meet with Cardinals executive Terry McDonough and Vikings assistant GM George Paton. this week along with Kyle Shanahan, who is expected to be hired as the team’s next head coach.
However, reports have said that it’s possible the 49ers could re-open their GM search to other candidates, so this is something worth keeping an eye on in the coming weeks.
Dominik, 45, began his NFL executive career with the Buccaneers as their director of pro scouting back in 1997. He spent 12 years in that role before he was promoted to the team’s GM position in 2009.
Dominik has been working as an analyst for ESPN the past few years.
During his five years as GM, Dominik’s team produced a record of 28-52 (35 percent), which included one winning season and no playoff appearances.
We’ll have more regarding the 49ers and possible front office additions as the news is available.
