A former offensive lineman at Cal State Fullerton, Drevno has an extensive history with Harbaugh dating back to San Diego, Stanford and also a stint with the 49ers.

In 2003, Drevno was hired by Harbaugh at San Diego, named offensive coordinator and offensive line coach. In every season San Diego finished in the top 10 in division I-AA in total offense, leading the nation twice.

Drevno made the move to Stanford along with Harbaugh following the 2006 season, coaching tight ends the first two years before coaching the offensive line in his final two seasons.

After four years at Stanford Drevno then moved to the NFL and the 49ers in charge of guiding the offensive line as well. Drevno most recently served as the offensive line coach at USC in 2013.
