With the San Francisco 49ers addition of defensive assistant Aubrayo Franklin – it’s pronounced (uh-BRY-uh) – we thought the time would be right to review the correct pronunciations of coaches' and players’ names.
The NFL player-turned-coach, who was officially hired on Monday, isn't the only one with a name needing clarification.
To avoid future confusion, here are the team’s tongue twisters:
Special teams coordinator Thomas McGaughey Jr. (muh-GAY-hee)
Offensive line coach Chris Foerster (FURR-stir)
Defensive assistant Ejiro Evero (eeh-JEE-row EV-uh-row)
LB Corey Lemonier (lemon-YAY)
