49ers assistant head coach Anthony Lynn leaving to join Commanders

The 49ers are losing another assistant coach. According to a report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter, 49ers assistant head coach Anthony Lynn is vacating his position with San Francisco to take the run game coordinator job under Dan Quinn with the Washington Commanders.

The run game coordinator job likely gets Lynn further into a spotlight where he could make another run at a head coaching gig. He’s also friends with Quinn according to Schefter.

This is the second time the Commanders have tapped the 49ers to help fill vacancies in their revamped organization. Former 49ers assistant general manager Adam Peters was also hired to run their front office.

San Francisco is also losing offensive passing game specialist Klint Kubiak to the Saints after they hired him to be their offensive coordinator.

Head coach Kyle Shanahan on Tuesday said he expects all of his assistant coaches to be back, but now at least two are leaving and will need to be replaced this offseason.
