Report: Redskins add Foerster to staff
One job move filled an opening in Washington while creating another in San Francisco.
The Redskins hired former 49ers assistant Chris Foerster as their offensive line coach Thursday, a league source said.
The 49ers granted Foerster permission to speak with the Redskins, and Washington ultimately decided to hire him. Now San Francisco must replace Foerster, who joined the 49ers in 2008 after working for the Baltimore Ravens from 2005-2007, the Miami Dolphins in 2004, the Indianapolis Colts from 2002 to 2003, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from 1998 to 2001 and the Minnesota Vikings from 1993 to 1995.
Foerster's hire in Washington nearly completes the Redskins' offensive coaching staff, though the team still is looking to hire a receivers coach.
