But no one is better acquainted with the 5-foot-10, 185-pound Johnson than first-year 49ers wide receivers coach John Morton, who was Johnson’s position coach for his four seasons at USC.
USC wide receivers coach John Morton, 41, will join Harbaugh’s coaching staff, presumably with the same job description. Morton and Harbaugh were assistants with the Raiders in 2002-03 and Morton worked under Harbaugh as the passing game coordinator and wide receivers coach at the University of San Diego in 2005.
