Experience: 3 Years

Joe Tereshinski, III was named the 49ers' inside receivers coach, Jan. 1, 2012. A 2006 Georgia grad, Tereshinski spent the last two seasons as a graduate assistant at Wake Forest.

A former Georgia QB, Tereshinski III concentrated his coaching on tight ends this past season at Wake Forest.  He was the starting quarterback at Georgia in 2006, until he suffered an ankle injury.  He was a third generation Bulldog, following in the footsteps of his grandfather, Joe, Sr., (Redskins) 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.  I got to know him when I was at Georgia," 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.  He knows that and that's exciting for me.  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'll be a great asset to our wideouts because he knows what the quarterback's thinking.  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.
