The new 49ers coordinators met with the Bay Area media on Wednesday for the first time since joining the organization last month. Each was certainly impressive in doing so.
Greg Roman (pictured above), Brad Seely and Vic Fangio each took turns addressing cameras and reporters, where the offensive, special teams and defensive coordinator spoke at length on a wide variety of topics.
We’ll give each coach special attention by featuring their comments on a daily basis to close out this week, but to give you a quick common theme of the three, they were passionate and well informed on the game of football.
They all spoke glowingly of the opportunity at hand.
“To be in the 49ers organization is a dream of mine,” said Roman, who we’ll have more on later today.
“We have a real chance to make a jump in a hurry,” Seely said in explaining his reasoning to work for the 49ers.
“The NFL is a man’s game, it’s physical, so that’s a big difference,” Fangio said of the differences from coaching at Stanford last season to being back at the pro level.
The biggest news to come from the discussions centered on the league’s collective bargaining agreement and how a lockout potentially changes their ability to coach the players past March 3 when the current CBA expires.
According to Roman, coaches will not be able to have contact with the players after the deadline. Fangio will focus on what he can control and will roll with the punches as they come. So far he’s been getting to know the players around the facility while spending time watching last year’s game tape.
