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.

The San Francisco 49ers re-signed oft-injured cornerback Jason Verrett to a one-year deal on Monday. For the team, it was worth the risk. When Verrett, who entered 2021 as the 49ers' starting cornerback, is healthy, he plays like one of the top corners in the league. The problem is his healthy seasons seem few and far between. Verrett has been in the NFL for eight seasons and has landed on injured reserve during six of those. Verrett's two healthy seasons, though, were impressive. In 2015, he recorded 47 tackles, three interceptions, a touchdown, and 12 passes defensed, earning a career-high Pro Football Focus grade of 88.4 and Pro Bowl selection. Verrett signed with the 49ers in 2019 and again struggled with injuries in that first season with the team. But a

Jason Poe is a bit of a unicorn. The offensive lineman from Mercer stands 6'1" tall, weighs 300 pounds, and runs a 4.89 40-yard dash. He also put up 34 reps on the bench press, a 31.5" vertical jump, and a 9'3" broad jump. Jason Poe is an athlete. To hear him tell it, he's an interior offensive lineman slash fullback. And when you watch him run routes, you can see that he absolutely could profile at fullback. Just for reference, current 49ers' Pro Bowl FB Kyle Juszczyk ran a 4.77 40-yard dash at the combine at 6'1" and 235 pounds. Jason Poe C,OG/FB Mercer University 6'1",
