San Francisco 49ers Sign Offensive Coordinator Greg Roman to Contract Extension

According to Ian Rapoport, the San Francisco 49ers have signed offensive coordinator Greg Roman to a two year contract extension.

Per Rapoport:

#49ers have signed offensive coordinator Greg Roman to a two-year contract extension, I’m told. This takes the creative coach through 2015.

There was no talk of contractual figures.

Roman is one of the more highly respected offensive coordinators in the league, consistently in the mix for head coaching jobs and despite the extension it’s difficult to envision Roman sticking in San Francisco for more than this season.

The 49ers Super Bowl run most likely ended any serious offers opposing teams could have offered Roman, though, the New Jersey native will again be near the top of potential coaching candidates come the end of the 2013 season.

For now, the red and gold are happy to have the talented and creative football mind back in the Bay.

Roman has already been hard at work since signing his new deal, apparently trying to mix in tight end Vernon Davis as a wide receiver which our Mike Dyce covered earlier today.
