For four seasons, Hughes worked under two different coaches, then left to become offensive coordinator for the San Francisco 49ers.

After the 49ers struggled during the 1968 and 1969 seasons, the team put it all together during Nolan and Hughes' third year, winning the NFC Western Division while also leading the league in total offense.

The lengthy contract would prove to be a mirage as Hughes lasted just one season in the position. An indication of the season came in the opener when Houston was shut out 31-0 by the Cleveland Browns, and continued when Hughes fired two assistant coaches during the campaign. The disarray concluded on December 22 when Hughes resigned after a strange power struggle in which Hughes asked that the team trainer be fired, while team owner Bud Adams insisted that the equipment manager (who Hughes had fired) be reinstated. Almost two years later, one more example of the havoc surrounding the team surfaced when center Jerry Sturm, a member of the team, indicated that he had been offered a bribe to affect the outcome of a game.

When Cardinals' head coach Bob Hollway was fired after that season, Hughes found new employment on March 8, 1973 as offensive backfield coach of the Dallas Cowboys. Hughes' new boss, Tom Landry, had earlier played a role in his future when his 1956 retirement resulted in the Giants' trade for Hughes.

Hughes would spend the 1981 NFL season with the Philadelphia Eagles, then move on to become offensive coordinator of the Chicago Bears under new head coach Mike Ditka. While the Bears would become known for their defensive prowess during this era, the offense still had the unparalleled exploits of running back Walter Payton.
