Joe Tereshinski III was named the 49ers’ receivers coach, Jan. 1, 2012. He worked with the team during the 2012 red-shirt season and helped them take the field for the inaugural season of 2013. He is now in his second season as wide receivers coach.
In 2013, the 49ers receiving corps helped QB Matt Johnson rank 31st in the FCS with 2581 passing yards. The 49ers put up 450 or more yards in each of its five wins and had five games of 500+ yards.
A 2006 Georgia grad, Tereshinski spent two seasons as a graduate assistant at Wake Forest, in 2010-11, and worked primarily with tight ends in 2011.
The starting quarterback at Georgia in 2006, Joe III is a third generation Bulldog. His grandfather, Joe Sr., (Redskins) was a tight end and defensive end on Georgia’s 1942 and 1946 SEC Championship teams. His father, Joe Jr. was a member of the Bulldogs 1976 SEC Championship team, alongside his uncle, Wally. Joe’s brother, John, was a Wake Forest tight end from 2004-07.
"Joe comes from a long line of football players - he’s been around the game his whole life," Lambert noted. "I coached with his father and had a chance to recruit and coach his brother, John. Joe’s a high-character guy. (After graduation) he got into the business world - but he knows what he really wants to do. His passion really is football. I had a chance to work with him at Wake. He has a great wealth of knowledge offensively. He played quarterback at the highest level and can bring a great perspective for our receivers from a quarterback’s standpoint. He has great contacts and relationships and knowledge in the Georgia area and he will represent Charlotte in first class manner."
Joe was a red-shirt during Georgia’s 2002 SEC title season and earned playing time on special teams and as Georgia’s long snapper during his freshman through junior years. He was a member of the SEC Academic Honor Roll during his time with the Bulldogs.
A 2006 graduate, Tereshinski double-majored in finance and risk management. He and his wife, Jill, have a daughter, Molly and son, Joe IV. They live in Harrisburg, N.C.
