Kyle Shanahan likely to retain assistants Jason Tarver and Jeff Hafley

Jan 31, 2017 at 7:08 AM--


Alex Marvez of the Sporting News is reporting that San Francisco 49ers linebackers coach Jason Tarver and defensive backs coach Jeff Hafley are likely to stay under new head coach Kyle Shanahan once he is hired following the Super Bowl.


Tarver recently interviewed with the Washington Redskins for their defensive coordinator position. He served as the Oakland Raiders' defensive coordinator from 2012 through 2014. Before that, he was with the 49ers from 2001 through 2010 serving as the offensive quality control coach, assistant running backs coach, and outside linebackers coach during that span. Tarver returned to the 49ers under Jim Tomsula in 2015.


Jeff Hafley joined the 49ers in 2016 under Chip Kelly after spending the previous two seasons as the secondary coach with the Cleveland Browns. He started his NFL coaching career as the assistant defensive backs coach for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2012.

Under Hafley, the 49ers defense ranked 14th against the pass in 2016, allowing 240.5 yards per game.

There could be more holdovers from the 49ers' 2016 staff. Other coaching hires have had a head start in building their staffs, but Shanahan, who is currently Atlanta's offensive coordinator, is helping to prepare his team to play the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LI on Sunday.

Jason Verrett on re-signing with 49ers: 'My heart was always with San Fran'

Jason Verrett enjoyed dipping his toes into the free-agency waters. The veteran cornerback ended up re-signing with the San Francisco 49ers on a one-year deal, but it wasn't due to a lack of interest from other teams. He opted to bet on himself again, as he did last offseason, and prove to skeptics that he can stay healthy while playing at a high level. It also feels good to stay with something familiar. "[Free agency] was a good experience," Verrett told reporters via Zoom on Monday. "It always feels good to be wanted, but my heart was always with San Fran. I love the comradely we've got with the team, the coaches, staff, training staff, the amazing fans, the whole nine yards. I was happy that we [were] able to get a deal done, and I'm just excited to see what



Jason Verrett, teammates trust Jimmy Garoppolo, but believe in 49ers front office

Unless you stay off of social media, as Jimmy Garoppolo does, it's tough to escape all of the speculation surrounding the San Francisco 49ers quarterback's future. Garoppolo remains the favorite to be the Week 1 starter. Beyond 2021, though, who knows? San Francisco recently traded away several valuable draft picks, including multiple first-rounders, to move up to the No. 3 spot for the opportunity to acquire a quarterback of the future. The team obviously sees a potential upgrade in at least one option between Justin Fields, Trey Lance, or Mac Jones. However, Garoppolo remains in the team's plans for this season, allowing a rookie the luxury of sitting and learning behind a veteran. Cornerback Jason Verrett spoke with reporters today. While he plays on the
