Nick Bosa, the winner of NFL 2022-23 defensive player of the year award is set to work with the new defensive coordinator Steve Wilks. The San Francisco 49ers defense was top among all the teams last season. It was 49ers tremendous defensive effort that almost got them to the super bowl.
Nick Bosa & the new DC
Nick Bosa’s terrific defensive display & 49ers collective efforts earned defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans a head coaching job at Houston. DeMeco Ryans new job ensures that he makes way for Steve Wilks to orchestrate the club’s defense. Although the new defensive coordinator Steve may bring in new tactics, Bosa seemed confident & ready to play along.
Bosa told Yahoo sports’ Jori Epstein, “I don’t think there’s going to be much of a change.” He added, “I think from Kyle (Shanahan) down, there’s kind of an understanding of how we do things with Kris Kocurek as our (Defensive) line coach. There’s always ways to improve. But as a D-lineman, I am happy to say that I’ll be doing pretty much very similar things to what I’ve done the last four years.”
Moreover, according to Bosa, 49ers’ defense has “dogs at every level” which makes them easier to lead. Bosa was also praise for his linebackers Fred Warner & Dre Greenlaw who he thinks have taken another step.
