Default Mike Vrabel rejects 49ers DC job

Houston Texans linebackers coach Mike Vrabel declines San Francisco 49ers' defensive coordinator job

I don't recall seeing a story about other linebacker coaches turning down a DC job before. Is this just because it is Chip Kelly that it makes ESPN? Gotta think this sort of thing has happened in the past... maybe I just never paid attention.

Freaking ownership and Baalke have destroyed the Niners. They went from Super Bowl favorites, to a team that's going to be picking in the top 10 of the Draft quickly.

I think its more about defense for Chip Kelly's team being set up to fail. The way his offense works the D spends so much time on the field and gets gassed. Tough position for a new D coordinator.

Espn said that he got offered a nice deal to stay in Houston, so maybe that played into it.

I'm surprised Chip didn't give himself the DC job

The leading candidate now is an unknown college kid named Benny.

Romeo Crennel is Vrabel's former defensive coordinator, so they have that bond and mentorship going for them. Plus Crennel is getting older, so Vrabel may have a "coach in waiting" mentality.

Vrabel is young and knows his first major coaching job can severely hinder his future if it's not successful. Being under kelly could make him the next wade Phillips if he does great, or could get him out of the league.
