49ers to interview Jagodzinski for offensive coordinator job

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Former Boston College coach Jeff Jagodzinski will interview with the San Francisco 49ers for their vacant offensive coordinator position.

Jagodzinski was fired by Boston College on Jan. 7 after he interviewed with the New York Jets for their head coaching position against the school's wishes. He has experience as an NFL assistant in Green Bay and Atlanta, even spending one season as the Packers' offensive coordinator before taking over at Boston College in 2007.

San Francisco coach Mike Singletary and general manager Scot McCloughan will interview Jagodzinski on Tuesday night at the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala., as they keep trying to fill the gap created in their coaching staff by Mike Martz's firing Dec. 30.

San Francisco's next offensive coordinator will be the team's seventh in seven seasons. The 49ers offered the job to Scott Linehan last week, but the former St. Louis Rams coach declined it Sunday.

Singletary has interviewed Cleveland offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski and Indianapolis receivers coach Clyde Christensen for the job, but neither has received a second interview. Denver assistant Rick Dennison also interviewed, but stayed on the Broncos' new coaching staff.

McCloughan was a Packers scout during Jagodzinski's first stint on Green Bay's coaching staff.
