The University of Southern California announced they have hired 49ers offensive line coach Tim Drevno to have the identical job with their football program. Drevno worked with Jim Harbaugh at the University of San Diego, Stanford and on the 49ers.
Jim Harbaugh released the following statement on Tuesday afternoon:
"It is with great emotion, pride and excitement that we wish Tim Drevno continued success in his professional journey at The University of Southern California. Coach Drevno and I have partnered for the last decade at The University of San Diego, Stanford University and the San Francisco 49ers. Tim has been a trusted agent, outstanding football coach and known friend every step of the way.
Sarah and I have shared immense personal joy through our friendship with Tim, Shannon and family. We wish them happiness in their new venture and I am confident the entire Drevno family will attack this endeavor with an enthusiasm unknown to mankind.”
Drevno will leave the 49ers after the 2013 season concludes. The offensive line coach was with Harbaugh since 2004 at the University of San Diego. San Francisco was the third-ranked rushing attack this year with Drevno watching over.
