YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – The San Francisco 49ers and the Youngstown State University Football team are sharing facilities this week.

It’s also special for YSU Head Coach Bo Pelini, who got his first opportunity to coach in the NFL with San Francisco.

He spent three seasons as an assistant coach there and won a Super Bowl with the 49ers in 1994.

Watch the video above to hear Coach Pelini’s thoughts on the 49ers organization, and what quarterback Nathan Mays plans to do this week.

YSU will play host to Duquesne at 2 p.m. Saturday at Stambaugh Stadium.
