The purpose of the one-day clinic is to enhance the knowledge of young coaches who can learn the game from prominent professional and local Bay Area college coaches.
"This is clinic is about sharing ideas. It's a way to give back," said Nash, who is in his third year as a clinic volunteer coach. "It's important to give good demonstration to these coaches so they can implement what they learn.
"My son played Pop Warner football. Coaches gave their time to help my son. Now, I can help so more coaches can give back to other people's sons."
In 1999, San Francisco became the first team in the league to host this type of coaching academy. Many NFL teams have followed suit in this outreach activity. The 49ers' coaching clinic draws an estimated 100 coaches a year according to Nash.
New 49ers' head coach Mike Nolan and his entire staff will have presentations during the morning session on team building, leadership, team management and game preparation. Nash, Camp, Arnold and other college coaches will provide hands-on instruction in the afternoon.
