George Seifert (born January 22, 1940) is a former American football player and coach. He served as the head coach for the San Francisco 49ers[1] and the Carolina Panthers of the National Football League (NFL).[2] Seifert joined the 49ers' coaching staff under Bill Walsh in 1980 as defensive backs coach and served as the team's defensive coordinator from 1983 to 1988.

As a 49er assistant, his defenses finished in the top ten in fewest points allowed in each of his six seasons in that capacity: fourth in 1983, first in 1984, second in 1985, third in 1986 and 1987, and eighth in 1988. His final two defenses, 1987 and 1988, finished first and third in fewest yards allowed, respectively. On his 49th birthday, the 49ers won the Super Bowl in 1988.

In 1989, he was elevated to head coach, He is one of only thirteen NFL head coaches with more than one Super Bowl victory, winning in convincing fashion during both the 1989 and 1994 seasons with the San Francisco 49ers. In all, Seifert coached on five Super Bowl champion teams with the 49ers.

Seifert also coached at the college level, leading Westminster College[3] and Cornell University's football teams.[4] He was also an assistant at the University of Utah (his alma mater), Stanford University, the University of Oregon and the University of Iowa.
