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.

Richard Sherman describes conversations with John Lynch about leaving 49ers as 'fantastic'

Richard Sherman plans to play for another team in 2021. It sounds like the San Francisco 49ers expect that to happen, too. The veteran cornerback will hit free agency next month, and the Niners will move forward without him. The team has a reduced salary-cap to deal with and several tough decisions to make, making Sherman set to become a cap casualty. Cris Collinsworth recently asked Sherman what that conversation with general manager John Lynch was like. The defender says there is no animosity between the two sides. Sherman, who acts as his own agent and is part of the NFLPA executive committee, understands professional football's business side. That is allowing the two sides to part amicably. "Honestly, it was fantastic. It was business-like," Sherman told



New 49ers OC Mike McDaniel explains the thinking behind a Kyle Shanahan offense

Before landing with the San Francisco 49ers, the longest Mike McDaniel had spent with an NFL team was three years. That came with the Houston Texans between 2006 and 2008. That's also where he started working with Kyle Shanahan. Then-Texans head coach Gary Kubiak gave Shanahan his first shot as a position coach and McDaniel his first shot as a paid assistant. Then Kubiak threw the two in a room together. That's where the relationship started, McDaniel shared with NBC Sports Bay Area. The two went on to work together in Washington, Cleveland, and Atlanta. Shanahan built so much trust in McDaniel that he brought the assistant to San Francisco when Shanahan was named the head coach in 2017. McDaniel has been with the 49ers since — his longest tenure with one

Around The NFL writer Nick Shook examined the upcoming free agency landscape and played matchmaker between players and teams. In his latest feature for NFL.com, he picked "one fun free agency fit" for each NFC team. The San Francisco 49ers could see several defensive backs depart, including Richard Sherman, Jason Verrett, K'Waun Williams, and Ahkello Witherspoon. The potential losses at cornerback led Shook to pick Mike Hilton of the Pittsburgh Steelers for John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan's defense. "The 49ers are



Simms wonders if 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan is changing how he views QBs

Last year, Kyle Shanahan watched as Patrick Mahomes rallied his team late in the Super Bowl to dash the San Francisco 49ers' hopes of a sixth championship. With Deshaun Watson wanting out of Houston and interested teams contemplating what it might take to acquire the quarterback, should he force a trade, the coach has to look back at 2017 with at least a little regret. The 49ers could have had Watson — or Mahomes for that matter — and perhaps never would have had to wonder "what if?" The 49ers passed on both quarterbacks because the plan was to acquire Kirk Cousins during the rebuilding process. So Shanahan and general manager John Lynch used their first-ever draft pick as a duo on defensive lineman Solomon Thomas. It's been assumed that Shanahan is
