Confirmed 49ers coaching changes coming in 2024

The 49ers in 2024 will see some changes to their coaching staff, despite head coach Kyle Shanahan’s anticipation of keeping his assistants after 2023.

A handful of coaches were hired for different jobs elsewhere, while another was let go.

This is what happens to teams with as much success as San Francisco has had. Other clubs want to try and siphon off some of the coaching talent and we’ve seen this virtually every offseason from Shanahan’s staff.

Here are the confirmed departures for this offseason according to Shanahan’s conference call with reporters on Wednesday:

Tapp was with the 49ers for three years as an assistant DL coach, but he’ll follow former assistant general manager Adam Peters to Washington where he’ll be the Commanders’ defensive line coach.
