SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Aaron Salkin has been named the San Francisco 49ers' director of public relations Monday.

He replaces 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 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.
