SANTA CLARA, Calif. (July 18, 2005) -- Aaron Salkin was named the San Francisco 49ers' director of public relations, replacing an administrator who resigned during a scandal surrounding an offensive training video.
Kirk Reynolds quit in early June after the video was leaked to a newspaper. The video -- produced by Reynolds to coach players on their attitudes toward the media and the public -- featured strippers, racial slurs about the Chinese community, a mock lesbian wedding and Reynolds' impersonation of San Francisco mayor Gavin Newsom.
Salkin was fired by the Atlanta Falcons last August after six seasons as the club's director of football communications. He previously worked for the New York Giants.
