San Francisco 49ers lock up their secondary coach to a two year extension

The San Francisco 49ers will keep a key assistant coach for the next two years.

According to an NFL source, secondary coach Ed Donatell has agreed to a two-year deal. His contract expired after the 2013 season. There was some thought in NFL circles that Donatell would leave for a defensive coordinator job.

Ed Donatell is in his second season with the 49ers after being hired as the team’s secondary coach on January 19, 2011.

Working with assistant secondary coach Greg Jackson, Donatell helped guide the 49ers defensive backfield, in 2011, to 22 interceptions, which ranked second among all NFL secondaries. S Dashon Goldson and CB Carlos Rogers each recorded a career-high six interceptions and both were selected to the Pro Bowl for the first time. Rogers was named a starter in Hawaii, while also being selected Second-Team All-Pro. The defense finished the season ranked fourth in the NFL in percentage of attempts intercepted (3.9).
