According to Alex Marvez of FOX Sports, the San Francisco 49ers have hired former Indianapolis Colts safeties coach Roy Anderson as a defensive backs coach.


Anderson will join defensive backs coach Jeff Hafley and has been coaching within the NFL for eight seasons. Anderson was among the coaches fired earlier this month by the Colts.

Anderson joined Indianapolis in 2012 as the safeties coach. Before that, he spent several seasons with the Baltimore Ravens in multiple roles. He coached Antoine Bethea, who is now with San Francisco.
