NFL Network’s Mike Silver and Ian Rapoport reported that the San Francisco 49ers have officially promoted Mike McDaniel to offensive coordinator and DeMeco Ryans to defensive coordinator.

Silver reported who Robert Saleh will take with him to the Jets aside from Mike LaFleur, who will serve as offensive coordinator in New York. Offensive line coach John Benton, who will serve as run game coordinator as well. Those are the only two coaches the Niners will lose, which I’m sure the team is happy about.

Silver reported that Chris Foerster would replace Benton as the offensive line coach. Foerster was hired to a two-year contract before the season started as offensive line coach. Foerster has been coaching the offensive line at the NFL level since 1992 and has had multiple stints as the Niners offensive line coach.

Silver also reported that RIch Scangarello comes back as QB coach, which would signal Shane Day’s contract is up, or the team moved on from Day. I know fans have signaled they’ve wanted a change, so here you go. Scangarello served as the 49ers QB coach in 2017-18 before leaving to become the Broncos offensive coordinator in 2019 and senior offensive assistant in 2020.
