49ers defensive coordinator Steve Wilks will have a different view of Sunday’s game against the Jaguars.
After the team’s winning streak came to three games with a Week 8 loss to the Bengals, 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan said Wilks’ move from the booth to the sideline was a matter for the team will discuss During their farewell week. The 49ers returned from that bye and Shanahan revealed the outcome of those conversations on Wednesday.
Wilkes will indeed make a move in Jacksonville.
“We’ll put him on it field this week“Something we talked about a little bit,” Shanahan said, via 49ersWebzone.com. “I think there’s pros and cons to it, but we’ll see what we like about it this week. . . . Just because of some of the things you do in the box, all the upside that he has, which is great. But I kind of want him to be down low and be around our players.” “A little bit. They’ve had that more contact with the linebackers in the past, and I want him to be there so he can talk to the players a little bit more.”
The Steelers made a similar change last week when offensive coordinator Matt Canada worked from the sideline during their win over the Giants. The 49ers will be looking for the same type of results after their turnaround in their coaching operations.
