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.

Kyle Shanahan breaks down the 49ers' play that saw Trey Lance stopped at the goal line vs. Cardinals

By Rohan Chakravarthi
Oct 12

Rookie quarterback Trey Lance made his NFL debut Sunday and the day came with its ups-and-downs, as the 49ers failed to execute on offense, leading to a 17-10 loss against the Arizona Cardinals. Lance was featured heavily, as he threw 29 passes and ran the ball 16 times for 89 yards, which was questionable, given the amount of contact he faced in the game. One of those controversial plays came on 4th & Goal at the ARI 1 in the second quarter, with the 49ers looking to score a touchdown down 7-0. Running play-action, Lance faked the handoff to Elijah Mitchell and rolled to his right, electing to try and run for the score rather than passing the ball once his first read, the halfback, wasn't available. He was met by two Arizona linebackers, Isaiah



'It's a big concern this year': 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan discusses Javon Kinlaw's injury, development setback

Some fans are a bit too quick to write off defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw, feeling that he is yet another first-round misstep by the San Francisco 49ers. However, head coach Kyle Shanahan still believes in him and feels the defender's injury setbacks can still be overcome. Kinlaw entered the draft as a raw but physically gifted prospect that could develop into a force along the defensive line. That development has been stalled as the 49ers do what they can to manage the second-year player's injury. Kinlaw sustained a knee injury on December 20, 2020, against the Dallas Cowboys, forcing him to miss the season's final two games. He underwent a procedure after the 2020 season and then had what was described as a minor procedure to reduce swelling in the knee later in



49ers-Cardinals Injury Report: Jimmy Garoppolo, Trent Williams, George Kittle don't practice

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 5 contest against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. Today's practice report looked very much like what head coach Kyle Shanahan previewed beforehand. There was no Jimmy Garoppolo, as the quarterback continues to recover from a calf injury. "I mean, it could go up to game time," Garoppolo said before practice about Sunday's game status. "We've done it before up to game time. And it's really just about getting the mental reps while I can out there today, see where I'm at tomorrow and everything." There was no Trent Williams, who, like Garoppolo, was injured this past weekend against the Seattle Seahawks. San Francisco continues to be cautious



Jimmie Ward reveals what impresses him about 49ers rookie Trey Lance

By David Bonilla

San Francisco 49ers safety Jimmie Ward has gone against several rookie quarterbacks over his career, and he's done it from several positions on defense. He knows the difference between going against a rookie and a seasoned veteran. Coaches tend to keep things simple for younger players trying to transition to the pro level. That means a lot of plays are designed to get the football out of their hands quickly. Often, the game plan also involves playing it safe. "I don't know too many [young] quarterbacks that will go for a deep ball on third-and-one and third-and-two," Ward said Wednesday on 95.7 The Game's Damon, Ratto & Kolsky show. "Most likely, they're going to play it safe and try to run some kind of quick-game route to get the
