The San Francisco 49ers have offered their defensive coordinator position to Mike Vrabel. At the moment, he hasn’t responded to the offer.

If he takes the job, he’ll be the new defensive coordinator for Chip Kelly‘s staff. Just a day ago, the Houston Texans linebackers coach interviewed for the position.

Should he take the job, it would be the first time in his coaching career that he would be a defensive coordinator. It would also prove to the 49ers players that they’ve about winning with this move.

Recently, it looked like Eric Mangini would be retained as the 49ers defensive coordinator. He wasn’t one of the coaches that Kelly fired a few days after being hired by the team.

Vrabel was the Texans linebackers coach since the 2014 season on Bill O’Brien’s staff. Prior to arriving in Houston, he was the Ohio State Buckeyes defensive line coach in 2012 and 2013.

He was also the Buckeyes linebackers coach in 2011.

As a player, he played the majority of his career with the New England Patriots under head coach Bill Belichick. He also played for the Pittsburgh Steelers to start his NFL career and the Kansas City Chiefs to end his career.

With the Patriots, he won three Super Bowls and was a four-time AFC Champion. He was a member of the Patriots 50th Anniversary team, and a member of Sports Illustrated’s All-Decade Team.

He was a first-team All-Pro in 2007 and was also a Pro Bowler that season.
