Anthony Lynn is in his second season as the 49ers assistant head coach/running backs coach. He joined the 49ers after spending the 2021 season as the offensive coordinator of the Detroit Lions.
Lynn worked closely with RB Christian McCaffrey in 2022, who was acquired in a mid-season trade from the Carolina Panthers. McCaffrey, who was named NFC Offensive Player of the Week twice (Weeks 8 & 14) and NFC Offensive Player of the Month once (December/January), registered 1,210 scrimmage yards and 11 touchdowns after joining the team in Week 7. FB Kyle Juszczyk also earned Pro Bowl honors for the seventh-consecutive season.
