Another assistant coach leaves 49ers for college job


The 49ers are slowly losing pieces from what had been a stable coaching staff to the college game.

Via Matt Maiocco of, reports say senior offensive assistant Paul Wulff has taken a job as the offensive coordinator at South Florida.

Wulff would be joining coach Willie Taggart there. Taggart coached running backs at Stanford under Harbaugh from 2007-2009.

This follows the defection of assistant offensive line coach Tim Drevno, who took a job as line coach and run game coordinator at Southern Cal.

Those are the first two assistants Harbaugh has lost in his time with the 49ers. The more serious losses could be yet to come.

Offensive coordinator Greg Roman interviewed with Penn State this week, and remains on the lists for some NFL openings. Defensive coordinator Vic Fangio was reportedly sought by the Redskins for an interview.

“I know our people and their focus is right here, on this game,” Harbaugh said Wednesday, heading into Sunday’s Divisional Round playoff game against the Panthers.
