Did we just hire Brad Seely's replacement?

"Tracy Smith, a former Seattle Seahawks assistant, has been formally named the 49ers' special teams assistant coach, a move initially reported earlier this month.

...Smith, 29, will be reuniting with special teams coordinator Brad Seely, having worked together with the Cleveland Browns in 2010."

Hmmmm....very interesting. If nothing else, it will make our ST unit even better this year.

Everyone is trying to hop on before the championship train takes off.
Nice another Smith.
Possibly as a fall back option if Seely bails for a HC job?
His dad is currently the Seahawks QB coach

Of course it doesn't.

Lookin' into the crystal ball of the future my friend. Seely was already interviewed for the Colt's HC position this year. He will be a hot commodity when we go to the playoffs again. I don't think he will stay once we win the SuperBowl.

I truly expect him to become a HC next year or no later than the year after. He has the Assistant HC position now and helps Harbaugh with the game, you can see it on the field. I thought I remember reading last year that he wants to be a HC soon.

That's why I believe this guy, Tracy Smith, will be his heir apparent as Seely was his mentor in Cleveland and can continue that role with him. Smith seems like a great commodity for us in ST. He knows the system and can continue it once Seely leaves...and he will, too.

All the good to great ones do. It's just a matter of time.

Seely is a good special teams coach however I think its very unlikely he will ever be a head coach. Special teams to head coach has only happened once before so the odds stacked against him.
