49ers hired Jason Tarver as LBs coach.

Tarver is downgrading to position coach after spending the last three seasons as the Raiders' defensive coordinator. He served as San Francisco's outside linebackers coach from 2005-10 and will reunite with Jim Tomsula. Tarver's defenses largely overachieved in Oakland and he is a solid addition to Tomsula's staff. The 49ers are considering Eric Mangini as a potential in-house replacement for DC Vic Fangio.

Former Raiders DC Jason Tarver interviewed with new 49ers coach Jim Tomsula on Friday.

Tarver is expected to land a role somewhere on Tomsula's staff, but the position has yet to be determined. He served as the defensive coordinator for the Raiders from 2012-13, and is at least a candidate to fill the same role with the 49ers in 2015. Tarver spent 10 seasons with the 49ers before becoming Stanford's defensive coordinator in 2011.

ESPN 49ers reporter Paul Gutierrez reports former Raiders DC Jason Tarver is a "candidate" for the 49ers' open defensive coordinator position.

Tarver was expected to be high on newly-hired coach Jim Tomsula wish list, but ESPN's Adam Caplan said two other teams may be in the mix. Oakland ranked near the bottom in most defensive categories during Tarver's three-year run as coordinator, but his talent-deficient defenses arguably overachieved all three years. He will likely run someone's defense in 2015.

Raiders re-signed DC Jason Tarver.

Tarver's contract had expired on Tuesday. The Raiders' outmanned defense ranked near the bottom of the league in most categories, but overachieved for large parts of 2013. Tarver deserved another year under coach Dennis Allen.
