Jason La Canfora: Sources still point to growing schism in York family

Dec 18, 2016 at 8:28 AM--


Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports continues to hear information about a possible shakeup in the San Francisco 49ers organization soon. He stated yesterday that many plugged-in sources still point to a "growing schism" within the York family over future of the team.


"After 11 straight losses and another lost season, 49ers ownership is open to significant changes just one year into its latest coaching/management regime, league sources said, with longtime general manager Trent Baalke in jeopardy of losing his job and coach Chip Kelly hanging in the balance as well," wrote La Canfora in a CBS Sports report on December 11.

"Several NFL owners believe 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, and Mike Shanahan, who has been under consideration for coaching openings there in the past, could join the 49ers in a coaching and/or executive capacity," La Canfora continued.

The next day, he joined Gary & Larry on KNBR to expand on his report saying that the new involvement by the York parents may result in the ousting of their son Jed.

"[Jed York] would be out," La Canfora said about the situation should it come to fruition. "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."

La Canfora went on to state that, if this were to happen, Jed would no longer be the face of 49ers football. Someone else would take his place in that role.

Later that day, Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk refuted the report by La Canfora, saying it was completely false and that Jed York is not going anywhere. He also stated that Shanahan was not coming to the 49ers in any capacity.

Yet, even after that, La Canfora continued to stand by his original report and once again went on KNBR to reaffirm what he had said and discuss the Florio comments.

Only three games remain on the 49ers schedule so, soon enough, we will know what will actually happen.

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 2 contest against the New York Jets on Sunday at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. Tight end George Kittle missed his third practice of the week and has been ruled "out" of Sunday's game due to a knee injury. Kittle suffered the injury just before halftime during Week 1's loss to the Arizona Cardinals. Cornerback Jason Verrett is the only other 49ers player who has officially been ruled "out" — other than those on injury lists. Defensive end Dee Ford experienced some neck stiffness this week and underwent further tests. He has been listed as "questionable" to play against the Jets. On the Jets' side, wide receiver Jamison Crowder has been ruled out due to a hamstring injury.

The San Francisco 49ers (0-1) are looking to rebound from Sunday's season-opening defeat against the Arizona Cardinals with a successful trip to the East Coast and two games at MetLife Stadium. That starts this weekend against the New York Jets (0-1) and concludes one week later against the New York Giants. The defending NFC champions, who lost 24-20 on Sunday, open the week as seven-point favorites in their Week 2 matchup against the Jets, according to BetMGM. The 49ers enter the game with a lot of questions. One of the more important is the status of All-Pro tight end George Kittle, who suffered a leg injury before halftime. While he continued playing after the injury, he was ineffective as a receiving target in the second half and held without

The San Francisco 49ers (1-1) rebounded from their Week 1 loss with a 31-13 rout of the home-team New York Jets on Sunday. The victory came at a high cost, however, as several players left the field with injuries — with at least one believed to be long-term. Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo suffered a high-ankle sprain while defensive linemen Nick Bosa and Solomon Thomas, along with running backs Raheem Mostert and Tevin Coleman, sustained knee injuries. Bosa's injury is feared to be his ACL and will likely mean an end to his second NFL season. "It's heartbreaking," left tackle Trent Williams said after the game. "Nick is a cornerstone on this team,
