San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan hopped on a conference call with reporters on Wednesday to announce the firing of defensive coordinator Steve Wilks.

Additionally, Shanahan confirmed the departures of four assistant coaches, all of which had already been reported.[Assistant offensive line coach] James Cregg got the O-line job with the Raiders, Shanahan stated.

[Assistant defensive line coach] Darryl Tapp, the D-line coach at Washington, and [assistant head coach and running backs coach] Anthony Lynn is going to be the run-game coordinator at Washington. And I believe we already talked about [offensive passing game specialist] Klint Kubiak.

The 49ers must fill those roles and find a replacement for Wilks. It will be interesting to see which direction Shanahan goes with his decisions.
