49ers announce 2015 coaching staff
Those changes continued for several weeks as the 49ers lost their offensive, defensive and special teams coordinators to other jobs while they were hiring Jim Tomsula to replace Harbaugh as the head coach. Those spots and all the rest have now been filled.
“Our staff is a collection of passionate coaches who have wide-ranging experience at every level of the game,” Tomsula said in a statement announcing the entire staff. “This is a group of talented communicators who take great pride in helping players maximize their abilities. Throughout the staff you see bright, high-energy coaches who enjoy taking a hands-on approach to teaching the game. We are all looking forward to getting to work.”
Offensive coordinator Geep Chryst and defensive coordinator Eric Mangini were both on the 49ers staff in 2014 in different jobs while running backs coach Tom Rathman, defensive assistant Ejiro Evero and offensive assistant D.J. Boldin stay in the same roles. Ronald Curry will return and coach wide receivers along with Adam Henry while Mick Lombardi will move from an offensive to a defensive assistant role.
The new arrivals, most of which have been previously reported, are special teams coordinator Thomas McGaughey, tight ends coach Tony Sparano, offensive line coach Chris Foerster, quarterbacks coach Steve Logan, assistant offensive line coach Eric Wolford, defensive line coach Scott Brown, linebackers coach Clancy Pendergast, secondary coach Tim Lewis, senior defensive assistant/linebackers coach Jason Tarver, defensive assistant Aubrayo Franklin and assistant special team coach Richard Hightower.
