The San Francisco 49ers announced the hiring of seven more assistant coaches on Tuesday, bringing the total coaching staff to 24 assistants and one administrative assistant to Kyle Shanahan.
The 49ers announcements on Tuesday included offensive line coach John Benton. He is the final position coach to be hired, and any remaining additions will be assistant position coaches and other assorted coaches.
It is interesting to note that seven of the assistants spent time in Houston the same time Shanahan was one of Gary Kubiak’s offensive assistants. The group includes Robert Saleh, Johnny Holland, John Benton, Mike McDaniel, and Ray Wright as former assistants at the same time. Additionally, former Texans defensive lineman Jeff Zgonina and All Pro linebacker DeMeco Ryans were playing with the Texans at that time.
