The 49ers are rebuilding their coaching staff after the departure of all but two members of Jim Harbaugh’s staff and it appears they won’t have to look very far for one assistant.

Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area reports that Jason Tarver is expected to make the move from the Raiders to the 49ers to be part of Jim Tomsula’s first staff.

Tarver was the Raiders defensive coordinator for the last three seasons and it was not a tenure marked by great success on that side of the ball in Oakland. Maiocco reports that no role has been set for Tarver at this time as nothing is official, but the 49ers are in the market for everything on defense with it looking like running backs coach Tom Rathman will be the only coach sticking around with Tomsula.

If Tarver does land with the Niners, it will the latest in a series of jobs in the Bay Area for Tarver, who was an assistant with the 49ers from 2001-2010 and the defensive coordinator at Stanford in 2011 before heading to the Raiders.
