49ers News: Former Youngstown State HC Eric Wolford Will Be 49ers Asst. OL Coach

The San Francisco 49ers are continuing to fill out Jim Tomsula's coaching staff, and they're set to add an offensive line coach with decades of experience.

Eric Wolford has been coaching offensive lines since 1996, and his resume includes stops at Houston, North Texas, Arizona, Illinois and South Carolina. In 2010, Wolford was named the head coach of Youngstown State, where he led the Penguins to a 31–26 overall record between 2010 and 2014. Wolford was fired by YSU after failing to reach a bowl game in his five years with the program, and was replaced by former Nebraska HC Bo Pelini.

Wolford had been set to take a job as the Oklahoma State Cowboys' OL coach, but he's now expected to take the 49ers position instead. Tomsula is yet to name an offensive or defensive coordinator, but Alabama OC Lane Kiffin has been strongly linked to the OC job.

The 49ers are also still looking for a wide receivers coach and a tight ends coach, and Jed York has yet to hire any defensive assistants, strength & conditioning coaches or special teams coaches. QBs coach Geep Chryst and running backs coach Tom Rathman are currently the only 49ers coaches who have been on staff for more than a year, and it remains possible (although unlikely, at this point) that both could be replaced as well.
