It’s hard to blame the strength coach for a torn ACL, but the 49ers have made a change.

According to Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area, the 49ers have fired head strength and conditioning coach Ray Wright, and plan to restructure the department.

The 49ers placed 17 players on injured reserve this year and 24 last year, so maybe they think changing staff will change their luck.

“It’s been too big of a deal for two years,” Shanahan said earlier this week. “Injuries are pretty random, but it’s also affected us huge. So that’s something that we definitely have to sit back and really look at it from all angles and put a lot of time into. Just try to find a better perspective at it.”

Wright worked with Shanahan in Houston and Washington, and came west with him, but they’re making a change now.

    The Bears took the same approach this past offseason–for the same reason–and it’s worked out very well for them.

  2. Hey, atleast Clara was able to fire him instead of another guy retiring prematurely. Their stadium with its horrible turf is hosting the college championship…..and it’s being laughed at throughout social media. The tickets are going for the same deal as a McDonalds Filet-O-Fish, 2 for 5

  3. The other 3 NFC-W team couldn’t be happier the 49ers kept DC Saleh on the payroll. Keeping that guy on after what he’s put on the field over the last two seasons is the textbook definition of incompetence. When the real life Richie Rich is your owner (gifted a franchise from Mommy & Daddy) though what do you expect? Incompetence is the name of the game for Jed York.

  4. The Niners are a complete tire fire from the front office to the players to their stadium. I can’t wait to watch the National Championship on that thing you call grass, only in Clara i guess.

  5. Three of the five comments here are from Seahawks’ fans, on a trivial PFT article about the Niners. You guys need to get a life. The Niners are living inside your head.

    And as much as you like to mock “Clara”, why don’t you come down to Clara so you can see five gleaming Lombardi’s, something you’ll never see in Seattle.

  6. Hahahaha yeah 5 Lombardi’s in Seattle hahahahahaha NEVER GUNNA HAPPEN…but they do have that one trophy lol

  7. Poor Seattle fans they clearly know this is the last year they get to taste the postseason. I mean they sure as heck won’t beat the rams and since our injury riddled team beat them clearly a healthy team,with jimmy and bosa/Allen will destroy the Seahawks,well at least you guys will always have that 1 that’s right that 1 super bowl you can enjoy.

    Your team is the Cardinals, you should keep that smack talk in check.

    Having said that yes Jed York is the worst owner in sports.

    ============================
    Remember that time a few years ago then they had a dynasty? Yeah, me neither.

  10. The one trophy Seattle has is a gift from kingmaker Goodell, who decided to look the other way while Petey tells his defensive backs to mug wide receievers all over the field, not just at the line of scrimmage. Game fixing is part of the game now.
