PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) _ Jim Zeches, a longtime assistant coach at Washington State, resigned Wednesday to take a regional scouting job with the San Francisco 49ers.

Zeches, the Cougars’ recruiting coordinator since 1994 and tight ends coach the past two seasons, spent 12 seasons working under Washington State coach Mike Price.

The 50-year-old Zeches was hired by 49ers general manager Terry Donahue.

Zeches was an assistant under Price in 1989-90 at Weber State. He followed Price to Washington State, where he also coached defensive tackles and outside linebackers during his stay.
