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.

Whenever running back Frank Gore plans to call it a career, he plans to do so as a member of the San Francisco 49ers.

What Gore, the team's all-time leading rusher, told NBC Sports Bay Area this week is that he's already had a discussion with 49ers CEO Jed York about the plans, and the two sides agreed to make sure it happens. "We talked about that," Gore said. "I got to. That's the team that gave me the opportunity to do something I always wanted to do when I

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 Arizona Cardinals went into Levi's Stadium on Sunday and upset the defending NFC champion San Francisco 49ers 24-20. It was not the start Richard Sherman and his team wanted for what they hoped would be a bounce-back season in response to February's Super Bowl defeat. Sherman was asked after the game what the 49ers can take away from the loss, and what it might mean for the team moving forward. "It just comes down to executing down the stretch," Sherman responded. "Any time you get to play, we got to knock the rust off some things, some communication things we have to do better, but I think overall, we feel good about where we are. "They played a good game. They made some plays at the end. [Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray] made some plays with
