Eagles wide receivers coach Bob Bicknell spoke to 49ers coach Jim Tomsula about his offensive coordinator vacancy, but he decided that he didn't want to leave the Eagles, two NFL sources said.

There was an NFL Network report on Tuesday that the 49ers had targeted Bicknell and subsequently a report from the Sacramento Bee that the Eagles had blocked their receivers coach from interviewing.

But Eagles coach Chip Kelly has said that he wouldn't stand in the way of his assistants if they had opportunities for promotion elsewhere.

"I'm never going to stand in a coach's way when they have an opportunity to kind of get what they consider a better job," Kelly said in December after the season. "It's really their decision, not my decision. I'll weigh in on it if they want me to give advice."

Kelly has had his last two quarterbacks coaches leave for offensive coordinator positions the last two offseasons. Bill Musgrave took the Raiders' job and Bill Lazor left last January for the Miami Dolphins.

Bicknell has been the Eagles' receivers coach for two seasons. He previously worked with the Chiefs and Bills.
