PFT: Jed York not leaving and Mike Shanahan not arriving

Dec 12, 2016 at 6:13 PM--


On Sunday, Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reported that Jed York's parents, Denise and John York, will be taking "a more hands-on approach with the team" as they determine how to reposition the franchise. That new involvement was said to possibly involve the ousting of their son Jed, general manager Trent Baalke, and maybe even head coach Chip Kelly. It may also involve the hiring of former Broncos and Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan in an undetermined role -- possibly as general manager.

Tonight, Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk is reporting that the report by La Canfora is completely false and that Jed York is not going anywhere. He also states that Shanahan is not coming to the 49ers in any capacity.

"According to a source with direct knowledge of the situation, none of those things will be happening," reports Florio. "Jed York won't be leaving the football operation, his parents (Denise DeBartolo York and Dr. John York) won't be replacing him, and the team won't be hiring Mike Shanahan in any capacity."

"As the source explained it, the CBS report likely originated from an effort by Shanahan to get his name in circulation as the offseason carousel begins to spin," Florio continued.

Earlier today, La Canfora joined KNBR and said that Jed York would likely be removed from power in San Francisco. "[Jed] would be out," he said. "He wouldn't be involved in football operations. I mean you can get cute with titles. You can do whatever you think you have to do. But the premise would be, the top of the pyramid would be this person they bring in, to effectively be running the football operation."

The part about Shanahan seemed to be more speculation (based on the relationship between the team and the former coach) than anything else. "Wherever Mike was to end up – and I'm not assuming he definitely does get something – I think his best shot to get something would be San Francisco, but that's not a guarantee," La Canfora said today on the Gary & Larry show.

In case you weren't aware, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo has been the subject of a little discussion this season. Everyone has an opinion about his NFL future. Will he be the Niners' signal-caller next season, or will the team look to move in a different direction? Kyle Shanahan recently offered a vote of confidence in his quarterback. "I expect Jimmy to be our starter next year," the 49ers head coach said last week. "I mean, I expect him to come play with us this year (after he recovers from his ankle injury). ... It's a lot harder to win games when he's not here, and I'm just hoping we can get him back." Garoppolo is 26-9

The Athletic recently projected Kyle Shanahan's squad's chances of reaching the playoffs as a Wildcard at 6 percent. That's analytics for you. Shanahan doesn't really concern himself with computers trying to tell him what is likely or unlikely to occur.
