Back in December, former 49ers quarterback Jeff Garcia told CSNBayArea.com's Matt Maiocco he would love the opportunity to work with Colin Kaepernick.
“As somebody who played the position for a long time and didn’t fit the stereotype, who had to overcome the odds and battle, not just on a yearly basis but a daily basis just to prove himself, I know a lot of what it takes in order to achieve at that position,” Garcia said. “And I’d be more than happy to help him out any way I can.
“If he’s open to it, hey, I’d love nothing more than to be someone who can help him continue to grow.”
Two days after Kaepernick's plan to work with Kurt Warner, Dennis Gile and Mike Giovando at EXOS in Arizona was revealed, Garcia let it be known how he felt.
He tweeted an article from the Santa Rosa Press Democrat titled 'Colin Kaepernick's coach choice couldn't be more wrong for job,' and added, "I didn't say it but I thought it."
Soon thereafter, Garcia deleted the tweet.
On Monday, Garcia appeared on 95.7 FM The Game, and although he said it's "definitely a positive thing" for Kaepernick to be working with Warner, Garcia still wants a chance to help the 49ers' 27-year old quarterback.
"I think Kurt Warner is a great coach, great player obviously," Garcia said. "What he does as a coach I'm sure takes the mental side of the game, and he's able to do the things that can help Colin in the sense of studying film and watching how he sees the game, watching other quarterbacks play the game, getting ideas or picking up pieces as to how he can better himself mentally.
"And that's where Kurt was going to spend his time, he was going to spend maybe 2-3 days, if that, in the film room with Colin ... the fact of the matter is, he's (Kaepernick) getting the work in, he's trying to better himself, he's trying to improve, he's trying to do the necessary things that will help him be successful on the football field, and help him and his team elevate their game ... I would love to have the opportunity to work with Colin, and maybe it's something that will happen down the road."
Garcia also let it be known that he is currently trying to land a job as a quarterbacks coach in the NFL.
The four-time Pro Bowler has worked with high school, college and such professional quarterbacks as Mark Sanchez, Tyrod Taylor and Matt McGloin in San Diego in recent years. He spent several months this season as quarterbacks coach of the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League.
