According to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler, the San Francisco 49ers are hiring former Las Vegas Raiders assistant offensive line coach Cameron Clemmons to serve in the same role with the team.

Clemmons replaces James Cregg, who left to become the Raiders' offensive line coach.

Clemmons has spent the last four seasons with the Raiders and the past three as the team's assistant offensive line coach.

The following is from Clemmons' bio on the Raiders' official team site.

Cameron Clemmons previously held the role of offensive quality control coach with Las Vegas in 2020.

In 2022, Clemmons supported an offensive line that only allowed 35 sacks, tied for the ninth fewest in the NFL. The offensive line also paved the way for 2,059 rushing yards by the Raiders offense, the most in a single season since 2011. The line also helped RB Josh Jacobs lead the NFL with 1,653 rush yards, just the third time in Raiders history a back has led the league in rushing.

In 2021, Clemmons worked with an offensive line that helped pave the way for the sixth-ranked passing offense (268.6 yards per game) in the NFL. Despite constant shuffling on the unit, the offense recorded a 4,000-yard passer and 1,000-yard receiver. The offensive line helped RB Josh Jacobs rank in the top-4 in the league in rushing yards per game (94.0) over the final four weeks of the season (Weeks 15-18). Clemmons saw C Andre James, G John Simpson and T Brandon Parker make career highs in starts, while G/T Alex Leatherwood became the first rookie offensive lineman to start in every contest since 2018.

In 2020, Clemmons assisted a tight ends unit that led the league in receptions (128) and yards after catch (661) and ranked second in receiving yards (1,419) and receiving touchdowns (13).

With Clemmons' help, TE Darren Waller posted one of the most historic receiving campaigns in franchise history and earned his first Pro Bowl selection after posting career highs in receiving yards (1,196) and touchdowns (nine), while setting a new club record with 107 receptions.

Prior to joining the Raiders, Clemmons spent four years coaching at the collegiate level with the University of Tennessee (2016-18) and Eastern Kentucky University (2015). Under Clemmons' guidance in 2019, G Trey Smith earned first-team All-SEC honors, while both T Wanya Morris and T Darnell Wright garnered freshman All-American and freshman All-SEC accolades in 2019. The program earned its first bowl game appearance since 2016, completing the season with a win over Indiana in the Gator Bowl.

Clemmons first joined Tennessee as a graduate assistant from 2016-18. In 2016, Clemmons primarily mentored the running backs, guiding RBs Alvin Kamara and John Kelly each to 500-plus rushing yards on the season. Kamara was selected in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft, while Kelly was drafted in the sixth round in 2018.

While in his assistantship with the Volunteers, Clemmons participated in the Bill Walsh Minority Fellowship with the New England Patriots in 2017, working with club throughout the offseason program, minicamp and training camp to gain coaching experience.

Clemmons began his coaching career in 2015 as an offensive intern at Eastern Kentucky.

This week, Christian McCaffrey was a surprising absence as the San Francisco 49ers kicked off organized team activities (OTAs). While head coach Kyle Shanahan shared that he isn't too concerned about his missing star player, he didn't offer a reason for the absence. When asked if McCaffrey's absence was business-related, Shanahan responded, "I'm not sure if that is the case on any of those guys [who aren't here]. ... But it is all voluntary, so we'll see when it becomes mandatory." Everything up to this point has been voluntary. The 49ers won't require their players to be in attendance until a mandatory minicamp in early June and then, of course, training camp in late

The San Francisco 49ers kicked off organized team activities (OTAs) in Santa Clara this week. While the coaching staff has not had much time with their first-year players, defensive backs coach Daniel Bullocks praised one of his rookies—defensive back Malik Mustapha. The 49ers selected Mustapha out of Wake Forest in the fourth round (pick No. 124) of last month's draft. The defensive back's versatility immediately caught the team's eye. "I just think with safety today and defensive backs today, you need to be versatile. Even linebackers," defensive coordinator Nick Sorensen said earlier this month. "I mean, look at what we've done with certain guys that have

The San Francisco 49ers escaped having to play an international game for another season. The Bay Area team won't be required to travel overseas or compete in Mexico during the 2024 season. The NFL has released its lineup of international games, and the 49ers aren't among the teams scheduled for long-distance journeys. San Francisco's last international game was in 2022, where they triumphed over the Arizona Cardinals in Mexico. Their prior overseas venture was to London in 2013, when they clinched a victory against the Jacksonville Jaguars at Wembley Stadium. There was a chance that the 49ers might return to the United Kingdom for the 2024 NFL season. The Minnesota Vikings will host a team at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in 2024, and the 49ers are on their home
