Report: Zgonina hired as 49ers' D-Line Coach

According to Matt Maiocco from CSNBayArea.com, Jeff Zgonina has been hired as the San Francisco 49ers' Defensive Line Coach.

An ex-player for 17 seasons as a Defensive Lineman, he started out his coaching career at Houston as their Asst. D-Line coach and carried the same role to the New York Giants.

His connection to Kyle Shanahan comes from their days in Houston when Shanahan was the OC and Zgonina was still playing in the NFL.

Below is Zgonina's Resume:

Assistant Defensive Line Coach, Houston Texans (2013-2015)

Assistant Defensive Line Coach, New York Giants (2016)

After having really solid Defensive Line Coaches in Jim Tomsula and Jerry Azzinaro, the 49ers will turn to Jeff Zgonina. What do you guys think?
