It appears former St. Louis Rams head coach Scott Linehan is about to find himself a new job, as the 49ers have offered him their offensive coordinator position as reported by Matt Maiocco of the Santa Rosa Press Democrat. Should Linehan accept, he'll become the 49ers' seventh offensive coordinator in the past seven seasons, replacing Mike Martz.
The 49ers were also considering former Browns offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski, as well as Rick Dennison and Clyde Christensen. Linehan was fired as Rams head coach on September 29, compiling an 11-25 record in his three seasons.
Linehan has quite a track record as an offensive coordinator including stints in Minnesota and Miami. As Josh Alper over at PFT points out, Linehan's Minnesota offenses all ranked in the top-five from 2002 to 2004, while the Dolphins showed considerable improvement during his one year on the job in 2005.
