Adam Caplan of ESPN reports that the Saints recently brought in former 49ers OLBs coach Jason Tarver for an interview regarding their linebackers coach position.
Tarver also interviewed for the Redskins’ defensive coordinator vacancy before they elected to promote Greg Manuksy earlier in the week.
There is an obvious connection to the Saints for Tarver, as he previously worked under Dennis Allen as his defensive coordinator with the Raiders.
Tarver, 42, began his NFL coaching career with the 49ers as an offensive quality control assistant before being promoted a few times over the course of 10 years in San Francisco. He elected to depart for the defensive coordinator position at Stanford in 2011, but was later hired by the Raiders to run their defense a year later.
Tarver was hired by the 49ers as their linebackers coach in 2015.
