Uh Oh: 49ers Blocking Interviews With Ed Donatell

It’s being reported by Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network that 49ers blocked the New Orleans Saints from interviewing with secondary coach Ed Donatell. It is also likely then that the Eagles will likely not be able to speak with Donatell as well.

This is awful news.

As I detailed in my previous post, Chip Kelly has very limited ties to the NFL and will likely struggle to find a coordinator to come in when members to the defensive staff have already been added.

Unless things go well with Ted Monachino of the Baltimore Ravens, expect to hear the name Todd Grantham a ton in the next few days. Grantham is the defensive coordinator at Georgia (Brandon Boykin’s alma mater) and was connected to Kelly when he was announced as the Eagles head coach. Grantham is also a proponent of the 3-4 scheme, which Kelly would like to run.
