49ers hire Joe Woods as defensive assistant

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) The San Francisco 49ers have hired Joe Woods as their defensive backs coach and passing game coordinator.

Woods' addition to coach Kyle Shanahan's staff on Thursday fills a void created when Jeff Hafley left after serving for three years as defensive backs coach to take a job at Ohio State.

Woods spent the past four seasons with Denver, including 2017-18 as defensive coordinator. He will work with Niners defensive coordinator Robert Saleh on improving San Francisco's pass defense that set a record for fewest interceptions in a season with two last year.
