Former San Francisco 49ers and BYU running back Bill Ring was named running backs coach at Stanford University, making him the fourth former 49ers player to follow Bill Walsh to the school.

"Bill Ring is among the most enthusiastic, energetic and dynamic people I have ever worked with," Walsh said Wednesday in a prepared statement. "He brings with him a wealth of knowledge and experience."Ring, who played for Walsh from 1981 to 1986, joins former teammates Keena Turner (outside linebackers), Mike Wilson (receivers and tight ends) and Tom Holmoe (defensive backs) on Walsh's staff.
