Well at least there's a sliver of hope now. I hope we can incorporate some more conventional runs into our game plan since he's coming from an OL background.

Mullens will be the QB coach.

Mullen is still on the staff coaching the QB's. I'm all for the change at OC. However, if you're going to make this kind of move, he's got to be removed from the staff.

I'm sure the demotion was done to encourage Mullen to resign. If he doesn't during the season, he most certainly will after it.

It seems like most of the time this has happened at other programs mid-season it is a demotion as well.

I'm willing to be optimistic. I just want to see a guy that knows when to run it and knows when to throw it. Remember that with how our defense has played we are a competent OC away from being 3-1 right now.

I understand Lambert doesn't have many levers to pull and was likely trying to appease an angry fanbase. I don't know Adkins, so I don't know what to expect. However, it's a tad concerning that he has never been an OC before, and that he was OL coach for a line that has performed very poorly this year.

I'll put on my optimism hat and see what happens. Hopefully it's not even worse than what we had. If he just recognizes that there is a middle of the field and institutes a more robust playbook and running game (mid season? gulp!) that'd be helpful.

If it’s true that we have no playbook and only 4 plays and variations of those plays, how does this change anything besides the sequencing of those calls? I wouldn’t think he has enough time in between games to install a new system.

But encouraging for Mullen to not be at the helm of the offense nonetheless.

I really enjoy reading these, you do some real solid work. Keep it up!

Those rankings of our offense is hard to swallow. I would assume it takes some time for the offence to adjust to Adkins style but I guess we will see soon. I hope they do reach out Robert Washington to see if things be fixed with him. God knows we can't lose talent right now.

Total Sham move in my opinion.  Nothing will change in this scenario.  Lambert's crony taken care of through the year then they all should be gone anyway.  Noticed nothing was mentioned about salary changes, etc.

One thing I didn't consider, I don't think there is anyone else on staff with QB coaching experience. Let's keep that in mind.

This is football, not brain surgery.  Not much has changed about football play in oh say 50 years.  This disaster is all on Lambert.

I'm not sure if they can legally demote someone, salary-wise. If so, there might be a max reduction. I know several employers have policies like that here. He might be on a one-year contract and the money is already guaranteed. Just don't know.

And I would put our QB play as our 2nd largest concern outside of play calling.


We need a new OC...and we need a new QB coach. 


We got both.....but just shuffled the bad OC to QB coach and the bad QB coach to OC.


Not sure how excited I am about the move other than it was a move.


But I guess we can't drain the swamp until after the season.

This is somewhere between what I thought would happen (nothing) and what the board wanted to happen (Two Men and a Truck pulling up to Mullen's house).  I suppose it is possible that Mullen is a decent coach that got promoted to his level of incompetence.  Perhaps QB coach will be a good fit for him.  Fingers crossed.

This looks like proof that the heat is on.

They should have lowered his salary to 0. Mullen and Chris Ferguson should go set up a coaching school, get Alan Major to cut a nice piece of video of him clapping to play on the website.

Lambert is burning the candle at both ends, and he's about to run out of wax. This is why you don't date in the workplace (LOL Charlotte AD), and you don't have your friends work under you. 

Playcalling is a major issue, but the system is the real issue, and that isn't changing.  Hopefully Coach Adkins makes me eat my words, and if he does, I hope that every coach we have and the football account comes back and bashes me on twitter after I bashed them all weekend. 

Worst case this is Jeff still calling plays.

I've always said we needed a quarterback coach, but just aren't confident in Mullens to do this job.  I don't expect to see advancement in Klugh's footwork, reads, and anticipation, because I don't believe Mullens is a capable teacher of these things.
The Things I Would Always Like To See From 49ers Mens Basketball:

1. Good young men with good character.

2. Actually be taught good fundamental defense.

Agreed, however it's hard to bring outside help in during the season. That doesn't happen often. I'd imagine if we had someone else to cover the roll, we would have.

I agree.  I think this is just a holding spot for Mullens until he probably resigns after the season.  I was just making a point that I was hoping they would have noticed the lack of QB development from past seasons, and tried to fill that spot with someone else qualified during a previous offseason.  Plus get someone in that can help develop plays that create mismatches and gets guys open schematically if we aren't capable of doing it through talent at the moment (hopefully  former QB that can serve as QB coach/pass offense coordinator).
