The 49ers may have undergone quite the organizational overhaul in the 2015 offseason, but that hasn't discouraged coaches and players from thinking they're still in the playoff hunt.
"We’re not that far away from getting back to the playoffs and winning a few more games," new 49ers offensive coordinator Geep Chryst told the team's official website.
Chryst has been with the organization since 2011, carrying over from former coach Jim Harbaugh's staff.
He previously held the role of quarterbacks coach.
"In 2015, we’re going to have a new roster compared to what we had in 2014," Chryst said. "So how I see my role within that, is having a system that they can easily digest in our shortened offseason, nine weeks, seven with the coaches out on the field.
"That’s not much time to try to have a major overhaul, but we’ve got to teach the young players how to fit in with our veterans."
Chryst will be charged with re-tooling the 49ers offense, calling the plays and designing roles for newcomers like running back Reggie Bush and wideout Torrey Smith, both of whom were acquired in free agency.
"Steve Logan will be just great with Kap and the rest of the quarterbacks," Chryst said, expanding on his transition from quarterbacks coach to offensive coordinator. "That frees me up to walk around, but we’ll expand our vision on the field. We'll have some uptempo practices, and I'm looking forward to that already."
