    Niners' makeover begins on defense
    Nolan fires coordinator Davis, line coach Emanuel
    By MATT MAIOCCO
    THE PRESS DEMOCRAT

    The anticipated makeover of the 49ers' defense this offseason will include the coaching staff.

    Defensive coordinator Billy Davis and defensive line coach Gary Emanuel were fired after their Tuesday meetings with coach Mike Nolan.

    Nolan is expected to pursue a defensive coordinator with experience, which will allow him to focus more on game management.

    Jim Bates and Donnie Henderson are candidates for the coordinator position. Bates, a longtime coordinator, decided to sit out last season after getting passed over for the Green Bay Packers head-coaching job. Henderson, who coached one season together with Nolan in Baltimore, was fired as Lions defensive coordinator this week. Others whom Nolan might investigate are Dave McGinnis (Titans) and Dom Capers (Dolphins).

    I heard Jims name mentioned for the Dolphins job. That'd be neat.

    He probably won't ever come back to GB, however we seem to have some good coaches in our organisation now, the only suspense is around our OC position, let's hope one of our assistants work out!

    Would you really want Henderson, who was not good enough to keep the DC job on the Lions??

    My bet would be on Capers -- if Miami doesn't promote him.


    Wasn't the this thread about Roman actually tackling someone yet noone mentions it.

    Hard to believe Roman could be accused of making a vicious hit.

    He could barely tackle when he was in Green Bay.
