According to reports, the San Francisco 49ers will hire Brian Griese as their quarterbacks coach. Brian Griese once commented on ESPN’s Monday Night game.
Former quarterbacks coach Rich Scangarello left the team last month to serve as offensive coordinator at the University of Kentucky.
Brian Griese and San Francisco 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan are also old acquaintances. During the 2004 and 2005 seasons, Brian Griese played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with Shanahan as the team’s offensive quality management coach.
The San Francisco 49ers’ quarterback is also expected to change this offseason. Former starter Jimmy Garoppolo will give way to last year’s No. 3 overall pick Trey Lance. Jimmy Garoppolo, who underwent shoulder surgery, is also a potential trade.
Former Chargers coach Anthony Lynn was hired as assistant head coach in February and is also expected to coach the team’s running backs.
