Steve Logan, who served as Jim Tomsula’s offensive coordinator with the Rhein Fire in 2006, is expected to join the 49ers’ offensive coaching staff, a source told CSNBayArea.com on Tuesday.
It is not known if Logan, 61, is under consideration for the 49ers’ vacant offensive coordinator job or another position on the staff.
Tomsula has already added his former Rhein special-teams coordinator, Thomas McGaughey, to the 49ers, as previously reported. McGaughey was the New York Jets special-teams coach last season. The 49ers have not made any formal announcements of coaching additions. But McGaughey posted a Twitter photo of the 49ers' five Super Bowl trophies Monday and wrote, "When I get to work every morning now, this is 1st thing I see!"

It appears he will also be seeing Logan every day at work, too.
Logan was the Boston College offensive coordinator in 2007 and ’08. In Logan’s first season in that role, Matt Ryan was awarded the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award, given to the nation’s top senior quarterback. Ryan became the No. 3 overall pick of the Atlanta Falcons in the 2008 draft.
Logan worked as running backs coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from 2009 to '11 under head coach Raheem Morris.
Logan spent three springs (2004-06) in NFL Europe, working primarily with quarterbacks and wide receivers. Under Tomsula, Logan was offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. The Fire finished with a 6-4 record and ranked second in the league in scoring.
From 1992 to 2002, Logan was head coach at East Carolina. He compiled a 67-55 record, including appearances in five bowl games.
The 49ers do not have an offensive coordinator, but most of their offensive coaching staff appears to be in place. Tom Rathman is back at running backs coach, and quarterbacks coach Geep Chryst was also retained, though his role is unidentified. Offensive assistant Ronald Curry will work closely with wide receivers, though his title is not known, either.
Tony Sparano, who finished last season as Raiders interim head coach, is in line to coach the tight ends. The team has also hired offensive line coach Chris Foerster, who returns to that role after spending the last five seasons with Washington. Former Youngstown State coach Eric Wolford is expected to work as Foerster's assistant.
