The San Francisco 49ers are closing in on coordinators and are apparently targeting a familiar face to the Bay area.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Lane Kiffin is at the top of the 49ers wish list.
Alabama OC Lane Kiffin is a front-runner for 49ers OC job. Colts special assistant to HC Rob Chudzinski also under consideration.

For those that may not remember, Kiffin was the head coach of the Oakland Raiders as well as USC before being named to his current role of offensive coordinator at Alabama.
Kiffin has previously said he would be at Alabama next season, but we know how that goes.
The news created quite the spark on Twitter, as does any news involving Lane Kiffin.
Here’s one take from @gwiss:
LETS HIRE LANE KIFFIN WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG HAHAHAHAHAHA
