Just in: The 49ers hire former Seahawks LB K.J. to coaching staff

Mar 4, 2024 #49ers, #K.J. Wright

Strengthening the defense is the latest theme for the 49ers, added to by the signing of former Seahawks linebacker K.J.

The defensive coordinator position was filled by Nick Sorensen, which began with the hiring of Brandon Staley as associate head coach. They currently have former Seattle Seahawks linebacker K.J. Wright serving as an assistant linebacker and defensive quality control coach.

“Yes, it is. “I am the new assistant linebackers coach and defensive quality control coach for the San Francisco 49ers,” Wright said on his YouTube channel. “I’m so excited.” I’m really excited about this opportunity. I’m really happy that the 49ers organization believes in me and has confidence in me with their franchise. ” The 49ers are incredibly fortunate to sign Wright.

But anyone who follows the 49ers, led by Kyle Shanahan and John Lynch, knows they love adding former players to their coaching staff.

Wes Welker, Miles Austin, DeMeco Ryans, Dashon Goldson, Daniel Brox, and more. Wright’s recruitment comes from left field, which has been a common theme for the 49ers over the years.

Wright will be out of the NFL in 2022 after an 11-year career. He spent 10 of those games with the Seahawks, earning one Super Bowl win and All-Pro honors during his tenure.

He finished his career with the Las Vegas Raiders in 2021. Wright was a nightmare for the 49ers during his time with the Seahawks.

Bobby Wagner may have gotten the attention, but Wright wasn’t that far off as a great linebacker either. I think Kyle Shanahan always had his name in mind as a coach when he needed it because of meeting him.

Wright is now the other coach Shanahan has hired for his connection to Seattle’s great defense.

“I’m happy for Kyle Shanahan, John Lynch and the 49er faithful.” I’m ready. It can actually be a lot of fun.
