49ers add Miles Austin to coaching staff

The 49ers are adding another former notable receiver to their coaching staff after earlier this week tapping Wes Welker as the new position coach.

Head coach Kyle Shanahan will add former Dallas Cowboys receiver Miles Austin as an offensive quality-control coach, a league source confirmed to Chris Biderman of the Sacramento Bee on Thursday. ESPN was first to report the news.

Austin will replace T.C. McCartney, who was named the quarterbacks coach for the Denver Broncos last month. He joins San Francisco’s former quarterbacks coach, Rich Scangarello, who was named offensive coordinator.

Austin, 34, most recently worked in the Cowboys’ scouting department following a 10-year NFL career. He logged three seasons with at least 900 yards and had 37 touchdown catches, including 34 over eight years with Dallas after going undrafted out of Monmouth.
