One of Matt LaFleur’s assistant coaches is leaving Green Bay for an opportunity on Kyle Shanahan’s staff with the San Francisco 49ers.

According to Rob Demovsky of ESPN, the 49ers are hiring Packers assistant Butch Barry, who served as a senior analyst on LaFleur’s staff in 2020. He’ll be the 49ers’ new assistant offensive line coach.

Barry has experience coaching the offensive line. Before arriving in Green Bay, Barry was the offensive line coach for the Miami Hurricanes. From 2015-18, he served as the assistant offensive line coach for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The 49ers are losing offensive line coach John Benton, who left for a spot on Robert Saleh’s new staff with the New York Jets.

The Packers still have offensive line coach Adam Stenavich and assistant Luke Butkus.
