Many of these hires were already reported on, but the major surprises included Tarver being retained as Senior Defensive Assistant. He'll be really helpful in implementing Saleh's system. He'll also have experience being a DC and help Saleh game plan.

Johnny Holland comes to the San Francisco 49ers with a lot of experience, He's worked in the NFL for nearly 21 years with various teams. He was also an ex-player with the Green Bay Packers as a Linebacker.
