49ers Rumors: LSU WRs Coach Adam Henry To Join 49ers' Coaching Staff

The San Francisco 49ers have added another talented offensive mind to the fold for 2015 in the person of now-former LSU Tigers wide receivers coach Adam Henry.

Per Jim Kleinpeter of NOLA.com, "LSU wide receivers coach Adam Henry is leaving for a position with the San Francisco 49ers, LSU sports information director Michael Bonnette confirmed Sunday."

Henry, 42, left the NFL to join the LSU Tigers in 2012, serving as an offensive control coach for two seasons and as a tight ends coach for three years before making his way to Baton Rouge.

The new 49ers assistant is a native of Beaumont, Texas, and played wide receiver for McNeese State (1990-93) before coming back to work as an assistant coach at his alma mater for 10 seasons (1997-2006) after being cut from the New Orleans Saints' preseason roster in 1996.

Henry joins former LSU special teams coach Thomas McGauhey, who will function in the same capacity on the 49ers' staff under new head coach Jim Tomsula.
