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.

The 49ers are just three days away from their preseason opener against the Green Bay Packers (8:30 p.m. ET/5:30 p.m. PT, Friday), a game that will give 49ers fans the chance to see a number of their team's players in on-field action for the first time. Two particular newcomers of interest to keep an eye on Friday night will be offensive lineman Spencer Burford and wide receiver/return specialist Ray-Ray McCloud. Burford is progressing towards starting as a rookie at right guard after being selected by the 49ers in Round 4 of the 2022 NFL Draft, while McCloud will be making his 49ers preseason debut after signing with the team as a free agent in the offseason. McCloud is expected to be the primary return specialist for the 49ers this season, but there's a chance he could also



Kyle Shanahan: 49ers playbook not changing for Trey Lance; Jauan Jennings tough to cover

Some expect the San Francisco 49ers offense to evolve with second-year quarterback Trey Lance at the helm. While that is probably true, it will not be by design. There won't be a drastic change to the playbook. Instead, Lance can extend plays and potentially get the football further down the field for some explosive plays. Head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters before Saturday's practice and was asked about the playbook. Is he considering changing it to take advantage of Lance's unique athleticism? "Not really at all," Shanahan responded. "I mean, you do the same stuff, and you just got a couple of more elements. When you have the threat of a running quarterback, that can change defenses. And when you see how that changes them, then you adjust to



Kyle Shanahan: 49ers were 'locked in' on Trey Lance and Mac Jones leading to 2021 draft

By David Bonilla

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan joined the I Am Athlete podcast and was asked about the process leading to the team selecting quarterback Trey Lance with the No. 3 overall draft pick last year. There was a lot of speculation surrounding who the 49ers were looking to draft after trading up from the No. 12 spot. Many felt Shanahan had targeted quarterback Mac Jones, while many fans scoffed at the idea. Jones was a target—along with Lance. "We did the trade so early that it made me feel good about it because I knew before we did it how I felt about the quarterbacks," Shanahan said,
