Sacramento Republic FC has bolstered its bid for admission to Major League Soccer with an investment by the San Francisco 49ers. The NFL team signed on a day after Vivek Ranadive announced the Sacramento Kings would invest in the team.
Officially speaking, the 49ers have exactly one coach -- Jim Tomsula. In reality, a number of the hires have been made and some of them have been working out of team headquarters in recent weeks. The 49ers expected to make an official announcement announcing Tomsula’s staff next week.
Steve Logan likes mobile quarterbacks. The 49ers' new quarterbacks coach made that very clear earlier this month during one of his typically lively and colorful “Logan Zone” appearances on WRALSportsFan.com.
The 49ers are expected to add Steve Logan to Jim Tomsula's offensive staff, a league source confirmed today. Logan served as Tomsula's offensive coordinator with the Rhein Fire in 2006, but it's unknown at this point which spot Logan would fill with San Francisco. Logan likely will end up either as the team’s offensive coordinator or quarterbacks coach.
