Former 49ers offensive line coach Mike Solari has reportedly taken a position on the Green Bay Packers coaching staff.
Solari will join Mike McCarthy’s staff in an unspecified role, Fox Sports reported on Monday.
Solari, 60, was not retained as part of Jim Tomsula’s staff after 10 seasons with the 49ers. He has coached 26 seasons in the NFL, including five seasons under George Seifert in the 1990s, alongside legendary offensive line coach Bobb McKittrick.
The 49ers hired former Washington offensive line coach Chris Foerster to replace Solari. Former 49ers coach Mike Singletary fired Foerster in 2010, who spent 2008 and '09 with the organization, and hired Solari to take his place.
Under Solari the 49ers had one of the top offensive lines in the NFL during their three-year streak of deep playoff runs.
The 49ers last season ranked fourth in the NFL in rushing, but only Jacksonville and Washington surrendered more than the 49ers’ 52 sacks allowed last season. But, according to Pro Football Focus, quarterback Colin Kaepernick had the third-most time to throw among quarterbacks in the NFL.
