The San Francisco 49ers announced seven new acquisitions to their coaching staff — one being a familiar face to the corner of 7th and Alma.
Adam Stenavich was named an assistant offensive line coach for the 49ers after coaching San Jose State’s offensive line for the past two seasons. Stenavich coached former Spartan and current Atlanta Falcons’ guard Wes Schweitzer during his senior year.
The announcement was made Tuesday morning via the 49ers website and was among the first moves made by new general manager John Lynch and new head coach Kyle Shanahan.
The 33-year-old has extensive experience for his age.
After going undrafted in 2006, Stenavich had stints with several professional teams, getting opportunities with several NFL teams and even over the course of six years. He even played the 2007 season with the Amsterdam Admirals of NFL Europe.
Once his playing career came to end in 2011, Stenavich became a coach, spending two seasons as a graduate assistant at his alma mater University of Michigan.
He then spent a season as offensive line coach for Northern Arizona following his move to San Jose.
As the assistant offensive line coach for San Francisco, he will work under new offensive line coach John Benton, to improve an offensive line that finished 27th overall (according to Pro Football Focus) in the league in 2016.
