Fresh off a Saturday engagement at Pebble Beach Golf Links, defensive coordinator Vic Fangio was stopped by Comcast SportsNet cameras after finishing his caddying duties for head coach Jim Harbaugh.
Fangio carried the coach’s bag after Alex Smith and quarterbacks coach Geep Chryst took the responsibility for the two previous days with the 49ers coach competing in the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.
Harbaugh came up just short of making the Pro-Am cut, but nonetheless, Harbaugh still enjoyed his experience.
So did Fangio, who was asked by CSN about the three-year contract extension given to general manager Trent Baalke through 2016. “I think it’s great,” said Fangio, who enjoyed meeting PGA golfers as well as San Francisco Giants pitcher Matt Cain. “It’s a reward for a job well done.”
Meanwhile, The San Jose Mercury News has the latest on San Jose State University’s plans to build a football complex named after 49ers Hall of Fame coach Bill Walsh. “The Bill Walsh Center,” named after the famous Spartan alum, is expected to begin construction next winter and will be completed by the start of the 2013 football season.
Lastly, with the untimely passing of famed singer Whitney Houston over the weekend, Yahoo’s Shutdown Corner Blog examined Houston’s stellar performance of the national anthem at Super Bowl XXV. The performance stands as one of the best performances in Super Bowl history.

In keeping with the musical feel, Pro Bowl tackle Joe Staley gave props to Adele last night on Twitter after the British singer won six Grammy awards. Staley’s tweet referred to one of this year’s “Joe Show” episodes where he and Vernon Davis sang a duet of Adele’s “Someone like you.”
