49ers tight ends coach Jon Embree won’t return in 2022

Jon Embree, the 49ers’ tight ends coach since 2017 and the man credited with helping to develop George Kittle, will not return in 2022, the Bay Area News Group confirmed Wednesday.

Embree’s departure was first reported by Solomon Wilcots, a Sirius XMNFL Radio host who has worked in the past as an analyst for ESPN, CBS and the NFL Network.

The circumstances of Embree’s departure are not known, although Wilcots said on Twitter the Embree was asked to take a 60 percent pay cut and implied it was unfair treatment of a minority coach.

The topic of race in hiring practice is at the forefront of discussion around the league after former Miami Dolphins head coach Brian Flores sued the league Tuesday alleging racism in coaching searches.

Embree, 56 was the tight ends coach for Cleveland in 2013 and in Tampa Bay in 2014 through 2016 before joining the 49ers in 2017 on coach Kyle Shanahan’s staff, the same year Kittle was drafted in the fifth round out of Iowa.
