Report: Tony Sparano joining 49ers staff as tight ends coach
They’ve brought former Raiders defensive coordinator Jason Tarver on board to coach the team’s outside linebackers and now Adam Schefter of ESPN reports they’ve also come to an agreement with the guy who filled in as head coach for the final 12 games of the season.
According to Schefter, Tony Sparano, who went 3-9 in those 12 games as the team’s interim coach, is joining Jim Tomsula’s staff as the tight ends coach. Sparano was the offensive line coach with the Raiders before Dennis Allen was fired and he coached tight ends at earlier stops in his NFL coaching career.
