Philosophical differences are keeping Kubiak from joining his former Denver Broncos under incoming head coach Vic Fangio, even though Kubiak is the team's former head coach and would fit quite well where he used to be.
Broncos Blitz podcast host Ronnie Kohrt breaks down the strengths and weaknesses of the new coaching staff.
Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reported in December that Scangarello's name was emerging among NFL circles as a potential offensive coordinator candidate.
But the 49ers last season had two coordinators on offense, while Shanahan handled all of the play-calling duties.
Still on the hunt for a head coach, the Bengals had reportedly been denied an interview by the Broncos with Kubiak.
Scangarello, 46, is a 24-year coaching veteran with four years of National Football League experience, including three with Shanahan.
First up for Scangarello is finalizing the rest of the offensive coaching staff. Rodgers came to the Bears in 2015, along with newly hired head coach John Fox, and was retained after Fox was sacked after the 2017 season.
He previously served as an assistant coach for the Oakland Raiders and Atlanta Falcons.
Case Keenum has a year left on his two-year, $36 million contract, although Elway recently said he viewed Keenum as a short-term fix as he continues searching for a long-term answer. Scangarello helped Garoppolo learn Shanahan's complex offense well enough to go 5-0 as the starter in 2017 after being acquired in the mid-season trade with the New England Patriots. Inside linebackers coach Glenn Pires and assistant defensive backs coach Roy Anderson will also not be retained, according to multiple reports. "But those guys haven't taken any time off, they've gone at it as hard as they possibly could, and I think that's why they've gotten better each week". The 49ers finished the season on a five-game winning streak after starting the season 1-10. But Garoppolo tore his ACL in the 49ers' third game this past season and was replaced first by C.J. Beathard and then former undrafted rookie Nick Mullens.
