Fangio, Manusky in mix for Cowboys DC job

Greg Manusky, a potential head-coaching candidate with several teams including the Panthers, is likely done with the 49ers. Vic Fangio, Stanford's defensive coordinator, was presumed a strong candidate to replace him (because of the Jim Harbaugh connection, obviously) in San Fran.

However, it turns out both gentlemen might have an opportunity in Dallas. Todd Archer of ESPN Dallas reports that Fangio is speaking to the Cowboys about the defensive coordinator position there and Gerry Fraley of the Dallas Morning News reports that Manusky informed reporters he'll be interviewing with Dallas on Wednesday for the DC gig.

Fangio's was a defensive coordinator in the NFL for a long time, running Carolina's defense from 1995-98, Indy's D from 1999-2001, and the Texans D from 2002-05 (yes, he's boys with Dom Capers, why do you ask?). Then he was with the Ravens from 2006-09, when they had a decent defense.

Manusky engineered a 49ers defense that ranked fourth in yards allowed in 2009 (and fifth in points allowed then as well) and 16th in yards allowed in 2010. Most impressively, perhaps, the Niners ranked sixth in rush yards allowed both those years and third and second in yards per rush during that time, respectively.

Paul Pasqualoni, who took over the defensive coordinator position when Jason Garrett ascended to interim head coach, is also in the mix for the full-time position next season.

Get a good DC and then go after Nhamdi A. from the Raiders. Newman is getting old and Jenkins had his worst season ever!! After that, draft a damn good SAFETY!! Sensabaugh and Ball are HORRIBLE!! They both couldn't catch a cold!! Once we shore up the secondary, work on the offensive line!

If it has to be one of those three then go with Manusky. Fangio has been the DC for some of the worst defenses over the last 15 years and please i hope they do not bring Pasqualoni back, he is awful.

I am going to be a very unhappy person if the 49ers end up with neither of these guys at DC.

Vic Fangio must have gotten into an argument with Harbaugh or Fangio thinks that the Cowboys defense is in better shape than the 49ers. If Shaw is named Stanford's head coach then Harbaugh will have to replace both his OC and DC.
