Default Is there a coach we are waiting for?

We don't really seem to have a high profile DC (do we need one?) on staff yet. Is there a coach that's still playing that we could be waiting for?

I was hoping for Jerry Gray or Bates, but Gray signed with Washington as the DB coach, and Bates seems to want too much money and/or power. Don't know who else is available unless the Texans are waiting for someone from Seattle or Pittsburgh. If they are switching to the 4-3, it really doesn't make much sense to bring someone in from the 'burgh, but I could be wrong.

I have a feeling that we are gonna see a no name, or someone who isnt exactly considered "elite" as our DC next season.

Anyone is better than Fangio.. but im disappointed that we havnt been unable to get a proven DC.

I'm still hoping on Bates. I'm surprised Gray went for a lesser position on another team.

Is there any update on Sherman as our O-line coach?

Looks like a pretty good choice. If he were to get it maybe he can bring Jamie Sharper back with him.

How about Dwaine Board, he was the defenisve line coach with the 49ers when the Niners won their last Super Bowl in 1994. Dwaine is currently the D-line coach for the Seahawks (Seachickens as they are refered to on the Niners message board). Kubi was the QB coach on the Niners staff that same year.

My best guess is Kubi is waiting on a coach who is still coaching in the playoffs, because we haven't heard anything new regarding a DC.

Dwaine Board

Defensive Line
Seattle made significant moves prior to the 2003 season to shore up a defense that had ranked last against the run in 2002. One of the most important moves was hiring former San Francisco 49ers defensive line coach Dwaine Board on January 29, 2003.

Board made an immediate impact with the defensive line helping improve Seattle’s run defense from last in the NFL in 2002 to 19th in 2003, the second-greatest turnaround in the NFL behind New England. He also helped the club rank fourth in the NFC (T7th NFL) with 41 sacks.

Board’s group generated 36 sacks in 2004, without the services of DE Grant Wistrom for seven games.

Board was part of a 49ers defensive staff in 2002 that designed a defense that ranked second in the NFC (7th NFL) against the run allowing an average of 103.3 yards per game. Board’s line also contributed to a defense that ranked fourth in the NFC (7th NFL) in sacks, while coaching DT Bryant Young to his fourth Pro Bowl.

Before joining Seattle, Board previously served 23 years in the 49ers’ organization, 10 as a player (1979-88) and 13 as a coach. He began his coaching career in 1990 as a San Francisco defensive line assistant before being promoted to defensive line coach in 1994.

In 15 seasons as a coach, Board has sent players to 10 Pro Bowls, including Dana Stubblefield who was named 1997 NFL Defensive Player of the Year.

Board and Mike Holmgren were on the same 49ers coaching staff from 1990-91.

In 2001, Board’s defensive line was anchored by three-time Pro Bowler Young and the return of Stubblefield. He also tutored rookie lineman Andre Carter, who led the team in sacks with 6.5.

The 2000 season was led by Young and Brentson Buckner, who combined for 16.5 sacks.

Young was the bright spot of Board’s 1999 defensive line. Returning to the starting lineup after a career-threatening injury in 1998, Young recorded 11 sacks, was voted NFL Comeback Player of the Year by Associated Press and was selected to his second Pro Bowl. Under Board, the 1998 defensive unit recorded 51.0 sacks to rank second in the NFL, including Chris Doleman’s 15.0 that ranked second in the NFC (3rd NFL). Board was a factor in the development of Stubblefield in 1997, who was named NFL Defensive Player of the Year after a career-high 15.0 sacks.

A member of four world championship 49ers teams as a player and coach, Board recorded 61.0 career sacks and eight more in the postseason from 1979-88. His four tackles, two sacks and constant pressure in Super Bowl XIX, earned him Defensive Player of the Game honors in San Francisco’s 38-16 win over Miami.

A graduate of Franklin County (VA) High, Board was a three-time All-America selection at North Carolina A&T and a fifth-round draft choice of the Steelers in 1979.

Following his release by Pittsburgh, Board signed with the 49ers and registered a team-leading seven sacks as a rookie in 1979. He retired following the 1988 campaign, after joining the Saints in midseason.

Born in Rocky Mount, Va., “Pee Wee” and his wife, Lynne, have three daughters, Camille, Allie and Tessa Raine.
