Robert Saleh has snagged away 49ers offensive line coach John Benton to serve in a similar role with the New York Jets. The former Niners defensive coordinator already took Mike LaFleur with him to serve as his offensive coordinator.


Assistant offensive line coach Chris Foerster will replace Benton. The team will also be getting a familiar face back with Rich Scangarello, who will once again serve as the team's quarterbacks coach. He served as the Denver Broncos' offensive coordinator in 2019 and was an assistant with the Philadelphia Eagles this past season. Scangarello was the 49ers' quarterbacks coach from 2017-18.


All of this comes after the team promoted linebackers coach DeMeco Ryans to defensive coordinator. Plans for that move were reported almost immediately following Saleh's departure.

The 49ers have made a slew of March roster moves in that time, some of which made major headlines across the NFL. A few of those moves paid off for the 49ers, while others have had little or no impact -- or have even been impactful in a negative way. Here's a look back at ten March moves in particular that left a positive or negative mark (or both). 10. Signing defensive end

Former San Francisco 49ers linebacker Patrick Willis, one of the best to play the position, recently spoke with Fox News and shared his thoughts on what the Niners' offseason focus should be. San Francisco was in the Super Bowl just over a year ago. It followed up the impressive run with a six-win campaign in 2020. The 49ers hope to rebound in 2021, and that will start with the upcoming draft. San Francisco owns the No. 12 overall pick. While some feel that head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch might try to target a rookie quarterback, Willis believes his former team can return to glory by focusing on defense this offseason.
