San Francisco 49ers hire Chris Foerster, retain Geep Chryst


The San Francisco 49ers found their new offensive line coach today as they bring back a familiar face in Chris Foerster. This will be Foerster’s second stint with the team as he coached the team’s offensive line from 2008 and 2009. A possibility I envisioned as I tweeted three days ago:

It now is official, as Foerster will now be the team’s new offensive line coach. However, Foerster isn’t the only coach in the news as Sacramento Bee’s Matt Barrows reported that Geep Chryst will be retained. His role with the 2015 coaching staff has yet to be determined.
