Niners hire Raye as offensive coordinator

After weeks of looking, the San Francisco 49ers finally found their man. They hired Jimmy Raye as their offensive coordinator, league sources said Wednesday night.

Raye, a former running backs coach for the New York Jets, beat out candidates such as Baltimore Ravens quarterbacks coach Hue Jackson and new San Diego Chargers assistant head coach Rob Chudzinski.

The 49ers wanted to hire someone by Thursday, when they were scheduled to begin their draft meetings. Now they have. Raye is their offensive coordinator.
