Brian Griese is in his second season as the 49ers quarterbacks coach. He joined the 49ers after spending the previous two years (2020-21) as an analyst on ESPN's Monday Night Football.

In his first year as the team's quarterbacks coach in 2022, San Francisco saw three starting quarterbacks during the season, with rookie QB Brock Purdy becoming the team's starter in Week 13. The 49ers offense remained explosive, as the team ranked fifth in the NFL in yards per game (365.6) and averaged 5.9 yards per play, the fourth-highest mark in the league. Purdy went 7-1 as a starter, including the playoffs, and became the first quarterback in franchise history to win their first five starts and the third rookie quarterback in NFL history to win at least their first five starts.
