Rich Scangarello (scain-guh-REL-oh) enters his first season as the 49ers quarterbacks coach. He joins San Francisco after spending the 2016 season as the offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach at Wagner College.

Scangarello joined Wagner following one season (2015) as an offensive assistant with the Atlanta Falcons. In Atlanta, he assisted the offensive line with run-game preparation and coordinated the defensive scout team for the offense.

Before joining the Falcons, Scangarello spent three seasons (2012-14) as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Northern Arizona University. In 2012, Scangarello worked with QB Cary Grossart at NAU, who finished his career with the top completion percentage in school history (66.3). He also registered the second-best completion percentage in a single season with 66.7. The Lumberjacks averaged 31.6 points per game that season, finishing tied for 27th out of 123 Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) schools.

Prior to his time at NAU, Scangarello served as the offensive coordinator, assistant head coach and quarterbacks coach two seasons (2010-11) at Millsaps College (Jackson, MS), where he saw QB Garrett Pinciotti earn Second-Team All-SCAC honors in 2011, after throwing for 2,200 yards and 23 touchdowns.

Scangarello originally entered the NFL in 2009 with the Oakland Raiders as an offensive quality control coach in addition to working with the team’s quarterbacks. He went to Oakland following four years (2005-08) at UC-Davis, which included one year (2008) as the school’s co-offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach. That season, the Aggies offense ranked 11th in the FCS in total offense, averaging 426.5 yards per game and 28.5 points per game.

He originally joined Davis as passing game coordinator and wide receivers coach, serving in that role from 2005-07. In 2005, he coached All-American WR Tony Kays, who led the NCAA and set a school single-season record with 93 receptions.

Scangarello worked at the University of Idaho in 2000 as an offensive graduate assistant and spent the 2002-03 seasons as the school’s quarterbacks coach. He began his coaching career at UC-Davis in 1998 and 1999, working with consecutive consensus Division II All-Americans, Kevin Daft and J.T. O’Sullivan, who both were drafted in the NFL.

A native of Roseville, CA, Scangarello earned a degree in business administration from Sacramento State University in 1996.
