Fooch's Note: I just got the press release on this, but there's a link below.
“I am very thankful that we were able to add Kurt to our coaching staff,” said head coach Mike Singletary. “He brings with him invaluable experience from more than 30 years of service in the NFL and college coaching ranks. Kurt has a diverse background and a tremendous knowledge of personnel, both of which will serve the 49ers well in producing a top-notch special teams unit.”
There's absolutely nowhere to go but up for this unit. I can't really judge much about the coach himself but its hard to imagine him doing any worse than where we were last season unless he gets rid of Andy Lee.
