49ers Going To High School Ranks For Coach

So, what do the 49ers need? Apparently a legendary high school coach, if recent reports from Comcast Sports Bay Area are to be believed.


According to’s Matt Maioco, a 49ers insider, Harbaugh has reached out to recently retired Concord (Calif.) De La Salle High head football coach Bob Ladoucer, sounding out the decades-long coach of the Spartans about a consulting job with the 49ers in which he would help Harbaugh navigate “team dynamics”.


That’s a major step up for Ladoucer, who led the De La Salle Spartans to 399 victories and a whopping eight mythical national titles. Ladoucer’s prep legend is so compelling that a major motion picture (starring Jim Caviziel) chronicling his life and tenure at De La Salle is currently under production.


Whether that calming phase would continue if he takes on the 49ers as well remains to be seen. Given Ladoucer’s penchant for tackling challenges head on, he might be precisely the kind of coach to take on the role that Harbaugh thinks he could fill, as well.

    • Best suited for a rotational role
    • We just resigned Cody until 2020-21 and Frank will be on his rookie contract until 19-20. I think we don't need to worry about this at all. The biggest issue we have will be Kemba, but since Kemba and Dwight expire at the same time we will have plenty of money. That Howard trade really helped free up Miles 12m at the right time.  Now, as far as fit is concerned. Zeller just makes everybody look better. He will help out the second unit tremendously. I think he will be a great fit with Monk and Frank in that 2nd unit.  Teams go small, take out Dwight put Zeller in. Marvin not shooting well, but in Frank and team with Dwight or Zeller.  We now have options, something we didn't have last year. 
    • Depends on what the play calling looks like this year. I try to avoid judging individuals on the success of a group, unless it's the HC. If Shula's play calling looks like hot garbage like it has so far and Cam & co. are just making up for it like in 2015, then yes I'll continue to hate him. If the playbook (and situational playcalling) is indeed better then I'll be glad and start warming up to Shula.
