SANTA CLARA -- The Cleveland Browns, the only NFL team with an opening at head coach, have contacted 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh about members of his staff who could be candidates for the vacancy.

"I've had talks, I’ve had conversations with the Browns regarding our coaches," Harbaugh said on Tuesday.

Offensive coordinator Greg Roman and defensive line coach Jim Tomsula are believed to be the two coaches in whom the Browns have expressed interest. Harbaugh declined any further comment about the Browns' coaching search.

The 49ers have lost two assistant coaches to the college ranks. Tim Drevno, who shared offensive-line coaching duties with Mike Solari, will become USC's offensive line coach and run-game coordinator. And Paul Wulff, senior offensive assistant, will become offensive coordinator at South Florida.

"Some assistants are moving on to other jobs in their career path," Harbaugh said. "That’s something else we’ll competing at, to make sure we continue to have a great staff."

When asked if he expects to keep the rest of the staff together for next season, Harbaugh answered, "We’ll see. You don’t know for sure."
