Bobby Slowik is in his eighth year in the NFL and second season as a 49ers offensive assistant. He spent the previous two years (2017-18) as the team's defensive quality control coach. Slowik has also worked in the NFL with Washington as a defensive assistant (2011-13) and video assistant (2010).
With Washington, Slowik worked closely with OLBs Rob Jackson and Ryan Kerrigan. Jackson started 14 games in 2012 after replacing OLB Brian Orakpo who suffered a season-ending injury. That season, Jackson registered career highs in tackles (35), sacks (4.5) and interceptions (four). That same season, Kerrigan earned his first career Pro Bowl selection after finishing with a then career-high 8.5 sacks and also picked up his second career interception return for a touchdown.
