John York calls report of Jed losing power “completely” false

Dec 18, 2016 at 4:55 PM--


San Francisco 49ers owner John York commented on a recent report following the team's 41-13 dismantling by the Falcons in Atlanta. He shot down a report of his son, CEO Jed York, losing power with the team. York was asked by Cam Inman of Bay Area News Group if the report was indeed false. "Completely," he answered.


The report originated on December 11 when Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reported that 49ers general manager Trent Baalke would be fired. "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 wrote within the report.

A day later, La Canfora expanded on that report while on KNBR. "[Jed York] would be out," he 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."

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. 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.

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


The 49ers are now 1-13 and changes will likely take place following the season. We will likely have to wait until then to see what those changes are.

Alex Smith is set to make his first start since suffering a gruesome and life-threatening leg injury on November 18, 2018. The story of the Washington quarterback, who started his career with the San Francisco 49ers, has been an inspiration. Many fans across the NFL landscape will be pulling for Smith on Sunday when the Washington Football Team faces the Detroit Lions at Ford Field. One of those fans is 49ers left tackle Trent Williams, who played with Smith in 2018. He joined KNBR on Thursday night and was asked about his former teammate. "It's a Cinderella story, for lack of a better word," Williams told Mark Willard. "I was actually one of those guys who seen Alex in the hospital after he had been through, I think it was 12 surgeries in 13 days or 11 surgeries

Trent Williams was frustrated as he watched his San Francisco 49ers teammates struggle in last week's game against the Green Bay Packers. The starting left tackle was supposed to be playing. He entered the week like any other, assuming he would be anchoring the 49ers offensive line. Then wide receiver Kendrick Bourne tested positive for COVID-19. Contact tracing identified Williams and two others as individuals who had been close enough to Bourne that they might have contracted the highly-contagious virus. Because the game was on a Thursday, Williams did not have enough time to pass two COVID-19 tests and be cleared to play. "It was a nightmare, man. It was a nightmare," Williams told KNBR's Mark Willard on Thursday night. "It's one of them things, I

The New Orleans Saints handed the San Francisco 49ers several opportunities to steal a road win against a heavily-favored opponent. Kyle Shanahan and the 49ers offense, however, seemed uninterested. San Francisco committed four turnovers, including two interceptions thrown by quarterback Nick Mullens, on the way to a 27-13 defeat. "As a whole, a bright spot is I thought our guys were fighting their ass off," head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters after the game. "There's no moral victories here, but I knew there was a big challenge going in. I'm sick at how hard they fought and that we had a chance to win that game, and I think it really came down to
