The 49ers will name Mike McCarthy as their new offensive coordinator in the coming days, according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune. McCarthy is still under contract to the Saints through February 15, but he was given permission to speak with other clubs. McCarthy served as the Saints' offensive coordinator for four seasons.
It remains to be seen who the Saints will hire to replace McCarthy, but head coach Jim Haslett was well aware that the change was coming and should have a plan in place. That plan likely includes former Dolphins' quarterback coach Marc Trestman, who is widely considered the top candidate to replace McCarthy.
