A tribute to the cornerstone of the 49ers:
Bobb McKittrick.


Bobb McKittrick passed away on March 15th.  McKittrick was a 49ers by the very definition and was responsible for touching the lives of hundreds of players, and even fans.  Bobb was a true gentleman and epitomized what it meant to be a 49er.  McKittrick never gave up, coaching and fighting to the very last minute he will always be remembered as true gentleman, a kind person, and most of all for simply being the man he was.  The 49ers community including my self would like to offer our deepest regrets to the McKittrick family and friends, and offer this page in tribute to Bobb.

In lieu of flowers, the family has requested that contributions be made to the Leo Adler Foundation Bobb McKittrick Scholarship.

Below find article covering Bobb final days:

"He was the most successful offensive line coach the game has ever seen. His spirit and standard of excellence will always be a part of the 49ers tradition."

-- Bill Walsh, the current general manager and former head coach who first brought McKittrick to the 49ers

"I learned more football from him in one day than I knew when I first set foot at 4949 Centennial Blvd. I felt his energy, his passion every day. He's the best coach I've ever been around."

-- Jon Gruden, Raiders head coach who was a 49ers assistant in 1990

"He was definitely a John Wayne type, true grit. He fought a great fight and had a great career."

-- Guy McIntyre, former 49ers lineman and McKittrick's assistant during training camp
