Ken Norton Jr. leaving 49ers after just one week for DC job

Ken Norton Jr.'s stay with the 49ers lasted about one week.

Last Monday, the 49ers hired Norton as the assistant head coach -  defense/inside linebackers. But now, he's going to exercise an opt-out in his contract in order to return to the Seahawks to become the defensive coordinator.

Originally reported by the NFL Network and KING 5 News in Seattle, 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan confirmed to NBC Sports Bay Area the news that Norton was given permission to leave.

"Last week, Ken was presented with an opportunity to once again coordinate a defense. Because of how we feel about Ken as a coach, we understand and respect his desire to pursue the position," Shanahan said.

Serving as Jack Del Rio's defensive coordinator in Oakland, Norton was fired by the Raiders on Nov. 21. Norton coached the Seattle linebackers from 2010 through 2014.

This past week, Norton sat down with NBC Sports Bay Area to discuss his relationship with 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh and shared his thoughts on Reuben Foster.

Why Garoppolo's bank account should be rooting for the Patriots

Jimmy Garoppolo is no longer his backup, but the 49ers quarterback should still be cheering for Tom Brady to win another Super Bowl. 

Well, at least his wallet should. 

Garoppolo earns a big payday if the Patriots win two more games. If the Patriots make it to the Super Bowl, Garoppolo can add $56,000 and another $56,000 if New England wins it all. 

The Patriots play the winner of Jaguars vs Steelers in their seventh straight AFC Championship Game. 

The 26-year-old finished up the last year of his rookie deal this season. He signed a four-year, $3,483,898 contract when the Patriots drafted him in 2014. Garoppolo made a base salary of $434,158 in 2017. 

After leading the 49ers to five straight wins as the team's starting quarterback, the team is expected to try to sign Garoppolo to a long-term contract or give him the franchise tag is negotiations hit a snag.
