The San Francisco 49ers have made another coaching staff hire as they inked Roy Anderson to coach the defensive backs. Anderson, who will be an assistant coach after spending four seasons in Indianapolis as the team’s safeties coach, will now look to further his NFL coaching career under HC Chip Kelly’s guidance.
Anderson first broke into the NFL coaching ranks with the Baltimore Ravens as the team’s Player Personnel Assistant in 2005. From there he would gradually work his way up the ladder from coaching assistant in 2008 to defensive assistant in 2009, to secondary coach in 2010 before leaving for the Colts in 2012.

The 49ers already hired former Cleveland Browns DBC Pat Hafley to replace DBC Tim Lewis, and will now have Anderson there as well.
