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.

    Greg Roman has 3 more years to show other team owners that he is capable of being a Head Coach.

    The Bleacher Report named him the #1 Offensive Coordinator in the NFL. As a 49er fan I disagree. For several reasons, the biggest reason being, lack of an efficient passing game. The only thing about the 49er QB’s he has managed is their lack of INT’s. There should be no excuse even with Crabtree possibly out for the whole season as to why Kaepernick should not throw for more than 4.300 yards and 35 passing TD’s
