Bobby Turner has served as the running backs coach of the Atlanta Falcons since 2015, the same amount of time as former offensive coordinator and new San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan. Now, Turner will follow Shanahan to the 49ers, per Gil Brandt of NFL Media.


Atlanta finished fifth in the NFL in rushing offense during the 2016 regular season. Turner has also served as the running backs coach for the Washington Redskins and Denver Broncos. He started his NFL coaching career in 1995.

Tom Rathman is the current running backs coach with the 49ers. On Sunday, Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area reported that the 49ers want Rathman to return, but it is unknown what role he would serve.
