Today, the San Francisco 49ers officially announced the hiring of former Indianapolis Colts safeties coach Roy Anderson as an assistant defensive backs coach.
The news was first reported by Alex Marvez of FOX Sports on January 28. Anderson will join defensive backs coach Jeff Hafley and has been coaching within the NFL for eight seasons. Anderson was among the coaches fired last month by the Colts.
Anderson joined Indianapolis in 2012 as the safeties coach when he followed new Colts head coach Chuck Pagano from the Baltimore Ravens. Before that, he spent several seasons with the Ravens in multiple roles. He coached Antoine Bethea, who is now with San Francisco.
