Despite missing out on two higher-profile targets earlier in the day, the San Francisco 49ers have reportedly added a pair of assistants to new coach Jim Tomsula's staff.
Steve Logan, who was Tomsula's offensive coordinator in NFL Europe with the Rhein Fire in 2006, is expected to join the Niners' offensive staff in an unknown role, according to CSNBayArea.com., while former 49ers nose tackle Aubrayo Franklin, whose position coach was Tomsula, is in line to be a defensive assistant, per the Sacramento Bee.
Also, the Niners have contemplated Philadelphia Eagles receivers coach Bob Bicknell as their offensive coordinator, while offensive assistant Ronald Curry, who was pursued by the Buffalo Bills, is now a target of the University of Florida to be the Gators' receivers coach, the NFL Network reported.
The 49ers have yet to announce any hirings.
Logan, the head coach at East Carolina from 1992-02, was the quarterbacks and receivers coach for the Berlin Thunder in 2004 and 2005, when Tomsula was the Thunder's defensive coordinator. Logan, who then was Boston College's O-coordinator in 2007 and 2008 and worked with quarterback Matt Ryan, has only worked in the NFL as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' running backs coach from 2009-11.
Franklin started 59 of 62 games for the Niners between 2007, Tomsula's first year with the team, and 2010, with three of his four career sacks and his lone interception coming under his tutelage. He last played in 2013, for the Indianapolis Colts.
The Niners missed out on offensive coordinator target Rob Chudzinski, who was promoted by the Colts from special assistant to the head coach to associate head coach, and Perry Fewell, who chose to take the secondary coach position with Washington.
