49ers assistant coach Adam Stenavich hired as Packers offensive line coach

The San Francisco 49ers lost another assistant coach on Friday, as the Green Bay Packers hired Adam Stenavich to be the team's new offensive line coach under head coach Matt LaFleur.


For a four-win football team that owns the second overall selection in the upcoming 2019 NFL Draft, members of the San Francisco 49ers' coaching staff continue to be surprisingly hot commodities. Two days after the Denver Broncos officially hired former 49ers quarterbacks coach Rich Scangarello as their new offensive coordinator, NBC Sports Bay Area's Matt Maiocco reported San Francisco's former assistant offensive line coach Adam Stenavich will be the Green Bay Packers' new offensive line coach in 2019:


Adam Stenavich, who grew up near Green Bay in Marshfield, WI, has a history with the Packers. The former college offensive lineman spent time on Green Bay's practice squad before he was released from the team in 2007. Stenavich joined the coaching ranks at the college level in 2011, until the 49ers gave the college offensive line coach his first NFL coaching job in 2017.

During his two years with the team, Stenavich worked under San Francisco's offensive line coach John Benton after head coach Kyle Shanahan hired Brenton in 2017 based on the relationship the two developed during their four years together on the Houston Texans' coaching staff. Once Benton joined the 49ers, he and Shanahan quickly added Stenavich to the coaching staff as the team's assistant offensive line coach.

Although Green Bay closed the deal today, the Packers weren't Stenavich's only suitors. Earlier this afternoon, reports from the New York Daily News claimed the New York Jets were also interested in promoting San Francisco's former assistant coach to an offensive line coaching position.

The 49ers continue to lose members of their coaching staff, which will cause some short-term challenges for Shanahan, general manager John Lynch and defensive coordinator Robert Saleh. But the fact that fellow teams continue to snipe Niner assistants tells us the NFL recognizes the San Francisco 49ers' coaching staff is full of talent, despite the team's lackluster record over the past two seasons.

New deal allows 49ers to fully utilize Deebo Samuel as an offensive weapon

This offseason will go down as one of the more chaotic ones in league history. The San Francisco 49ers finally locked up their star receiver Deebo Samuel to a multi-year contract extension. This needed to be the organization's top priority heading into training camp. Not only were there a plethora of star receivers threatening to hold out in hopes of securing a long-term deal, but the movement of star players around the league was also unprecedented. With the quarterback carousel taking place around the league, seeing Russell Wilson go to Denver, Deshaun Watson to Cleveland, and Matt Ryan heading to Indianapolis, 2022 will go down as the year of the

The odds of the San Francisco 49ers signing a veteran center like J.C. Tretter appear to be dwindling. Barring any injuries, the team seems content heading into the 2022 season with the players on the current roster who are competing for roles along the offensive line's interior. "We're very good with the people in our building," head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters on Friday. "When you talk about a veteran, which everyone does, that just means it's always a lot easier when you've seen someone do it for 17 games. But no one does do that until you give them the opportunity. We see in practice every day now—we saw it last year—that we have guys in our building who are definitely capable of it. Now it's about getting into those games. We'll try to give them some
