Tollner QBs' coach; 49ers hire Gase

As expected, the 49ers officially made Ted Tollner the team's quarterbacks coach today. Tollner has the additional title of "assistant to the head coach," which likely means Mike Nolan will frequently consult the veteran assistant throughout the year. The 49ers also hired Adam Gase as offensive assistant. Gase, 29, was offensive quality control coach under Mike Martz in Detroit in 2006 before moving up to quarterbacks coach last year. He will help install Martz's offense in San Francisco. The 49ers have not yet hired a running backs coach although Wilbert Montgomery is belived to be the leading candidate.
