Kyle Shanahan Moves To San Francisco, Eyes Jimmy Garoppolo

Kyle Shanahan named San Francisco 49ers head coach San Francisco 49ers hire Kyle Shanahan as head coach

New Niners general manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters Thursday that the hiring process itself was meant to avoid such friction between two powerful men set to join forces. Now he'll need to be replaced.

Shanahan's offensive system is a unique blend of the West Coast passing offense used by his coaching mentors - his own father Mike, plus fellow former bosses Jon Gruden and Gary Kubiak - plus elements of Mike Shanahan's running game and Kyle's own wrinkles.

Just 386 days after they had an introductory news conference for Chip Kelly, and 756 days after they ushered in the Jim Tomsula era, the 49ers rolled out the red carpet Thursday for their Next New Guy, Kyle Shanahan. He'll turn 24 later this month, and should only miss about month of the regular season. He has been an offensive coordinator for 8 years, with Houston, Washington, Cleveland, and Atlanta, enjoying the best of success with the Falcons and getting them to their 2nd ever Super Bowl in franchise history. McDaniel has primarily worked with wide receivers in his career.

The announcement seals the new tandem for the 49ers. "That, to me, is what separates the great ones". It was the second time the team reached the game in its nearly 50 year history.

I think if Shanahan doesn't have the 49ers winning by 2019 he may be looking to update his resume.

NEW YORK - Fox drew an audience of 111.3 million viewers for the first Super Bowl to go into overtime, a smaller audience than the game has had in the past two years but still ranking among the biggest for a television program in the United States. One of his key lieutenants, vice president of personnel Adam Peters, was the director of college scouting for the Broncos a year ago. He was slam-dunk MVP.

Falcons General Manager Thomas Dimitroff also must deal with other issues. In a statement, he discussed the teams goal to return to championship contention and also spoke about new General manager John Lynch who he labeled as his partner.

It all begins, however, with filling the considerable void that will be created by Shanahan's departure.
