Kind of a confusing situation. Jason Tarver was an assistant D coach for 10 years with the 9ers. When Stanford DC Vic Fangio was hired as the 9ers DC last season, Tarver replaced him at Stanford. Under the tutelage of Tarver, Stanford’s defense ranked either first or second in the Pac-12 in eight categories last season. That included first in total defense (331.4 yards) and rushing defense (107.8 yards) per game in the offense-oriented league. So now Oakland has two skinny white rookies at HC & DC. Sure hope Mackenzie knows what he's doing....
