The San Francisco 49ers announced on Friday that they have retained four coaches - offensive line coach Mike Solari, running backs coach Tom Rathman, defensive line coach Jim Tomsula and assistant offensive line coach Ray Brown. The team also named Ejiro Evero quality control coach.
Evero (eeh-JEE-row EV-uh-row) comes to San Francisco after spending the 2010 season at the University of Redlands as the special teams coordinator and safeties coach. Prior to his stint with the Bulldogs, he spent three seasons with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2007-09) as the defensive quality control coach.
Before joining Tampa Bay, Evero spent two seasons (2005-06) as an assistant coach at the University of California-Davis where he helped the Aggies to the Great West Conference Championship in 2005. In 2004, he was a football intern at UC-Davis, while also serving as an assistant coach for the Davis High School junior varsity squad.
Evero was a four-year letterman at UC-Davis, starting at safety for three seasons. A two-time captain for the Aggies, he was twice named a Division II All-American (2002-03). Following his college career in 2004, he signed with the Oakland Raiders as an undrafted free agent.
