The 49ers addition of DeMeco Ryans as defensive quality control coach is an interesting one. Ryans played for the Houston Texans when Kyle Shanahan was there as offensive coordinator and stopped playing after the 2015 season. He's a former first-team All Pro linebacker. This is his first coaching job in the NFL.

As expected, the 49ers officially named John Benton as their offensive line coach on Tuesday. Benton was the last major hire needed for coach Kyle Shanahan's staff. The team also added six more coaches in assistant roles. Those coaches are: Daniel Bullocks | Assistant Defensive Backs Michael Clay | Strength & Conditioning Assistant Stan Kwan | Assistant Special Teams Vince Oghobaase | Assistant Defensive Line DeMeco Ryans | Defensive Quality Control Adam Stenavich | Assistant Offensive Line
