The 49ers hired former LSU wide receivers coach Adam Henry, the LSU sports information department announced on Sunday.
Henry and Ronald Curry are expected to both hold the title of 49ers’ wide receivers coach and share the responsibilities. Henry spent five seasons with the Raiders coaching staff, including one of the season while Curry was finishing his seven-year NFL playing career.
Henry was the Raiders offensive quality control coach in 2007 and ’08 before serving three seasons as the team’s tight ends coach.
In his first season as the LSU wide receivers coach, Henry coached Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry.
Henry was a wide receiver at McNeese State, where he earned All-Southland Conference honors in 1993. He finished his collegiate career with 93 receptions for 1,690 yards and 16 touchdowns, all of which remain top 10 marks in school history. He spent the 1995 season on the practice squad of the New Orleans Saints.
Earlier this offseason, the 49ers denied Curry permission to go to the Buffalo Bills with offensive coordinator Greg Roman, who held the same role with the 49ers for the past four seasons.
The 49ers have not announced any additions to Jim Tomsula’s staff.
