Prior to joining the 49ers, Drevno served as a member of Jim Harbaugh’s coaching staff at Stanford from 2007-10. Over the course of his final two seasons with the Cardinal, Drevno coached a Stanford offensive line that allowed just 13 sacks during that span, ranking 2nd in the nation in both 2009 (7) and 2010 (6). In addition, the Cardinal offensive line led the way for a ground game that set a school record with 2,837 rushing yards (11th nationally – 218.2 yards/game) in 2009, followed by 2,779 yards in 2010.

Drevno mentored center Chase Beeler, who earned first-team All-American AFCA, AP and Sporting News, and second-team Walter Camp All-America in 2010. A year prior, all five members of the offensive line garnered postseason honors following the 2009 season. Prior to taking over the Cardinal offensive line in 2009, Drevno served as tight ends coach from 2007-08.

Prior to his arrival at Stanford, Drevno was the offensive coordinator and offensive line coach at the University of San Diego (2003-06). The Toreros won back-to-back NCAA Division I-AA Mid-Major national titles and Pioneer League championships in 2005 and 2006. Under his direction as offensive coordinator, the Toreros led the nation in total offense twice, finished 3rd once and 9th on the other occasion.

The 2006 San Diego squad that finished 11-1 overall led all NCAA Division I-AA teams in passing offense (293.3 yards/game), total offense (494.25 yards/game) and scoring offense (42.83 points/game). Quarterback Josh Johnson was one of four offensive All-Americans on the team and led all NCAA Division I-AA quarterbacks in passing yards (3,320), passing efficiency (169.0), touchdown passes (34), and total offense (336.7 ypg). He also posted 721 yards and 11 touchdowns rushing and one touchdown receiving. Johnson went on to be selected by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the fifth round of the NFL draft in 2008.

San Diego set numerous offensive school records in 2005, including points per game (42.6) and total offense (485.2 yards/game). In 2004, the Torero offense averaged 432.4 yards of total offense per game to rank 9th in the nation. The Toreros were also 11th in scoring offense (36.1 points/game) and 12th in passing offense (275.4 yards/game). Drevno directed USD’s West Coast offense to 483.3 yards per game to lead the nation and a Pioneer Football League best 39.9 points per game in 2003, when the squad finished 8-2 and was co-champs of the Pioneer Football League’s North Division.

Drevno was the offensive line coach at Idaho for three seasons (2000-02) prior to joining the USD staff. The Vandal offense ranked 6th in the nation in 2001 and 8th in 2000. He coached three NFL players while at Idaho, including Jake Scott, Rick Demulling and Patrick Venzke.

Prior to his tenure at Idaho, Drevno’s previous coaching stops included San Jose State (offensive line - 1999), UNLV (running backs - 1998) and Montana State (tight ends - 1993-95; running backs 1996-97).

Drevno began his collegiate playing career at El Camino College, where he helped lead his club to a national title in 1987 and earned All-Mission League honors the following season. He then went on to start on the Cal State Fullerton offensive line for two seasons. Drevno was an all-league player at South Torrance High School.

Drevno earned his bachelor’s degree in criminal justice from Cal State-Fullerton in 1992. Tim and his wife Shannon are the parents of three children, McKenna, Zachary and Baylee.
