Former Husker Daniel Bullocks will be joining coach Kyle Shanahan's staff with the San Francisco 49ers.
The Niners announced Tuesday that Bullocks will be assistant defensive backs coach next season.
Bullocks, from Chattanooga, Tennessee, lettered at Nebraska from 2002 through 2005, making 32 career starts and intercepting eight passes. Bullocks often played next to twin brother Josh as a Husker before Josh declared for the NFL draft after the 2004 season.
Daniel Bullocks was a Nebraska captain and second-team All-Big 12 pick in 2005 and then a second-round draft pick by Detroit. Bullocks started 22 games over three seasons with the Lions.
Before spending last season on the Jacksonville Jaguars’ staff, the 33-year-old was the cornerbacks coach at Eastern Michigan in 2015 after three seasons as secondary coach at Northern Iowa.
Former Husker Tom Rathman left the Niners organization earlier this month after Shanahan brought Atlanta Falcons running back coach Bobby Turner with him to San Francisco.
