Ian Rapoport: 49ers looking for GM-head coach pair that can work together

Jan 2, 2017 at 8:45 AM--


Ian Rapoport of NFL Network joined "Good Morning Football" this morning to discuss the head coach firings around the league. He added a little insight into the firing of former 49ers head coach Chip Kelly, who along with general manager Trent Baalke, was fired over the weekend.

"What the 49ers wanted to do, not another half measure," Rapoport said. "They wanted to fully clean house. Jed York, the owner, said it. MMQB this morning, 'A full reset button' and the reason why – they want to get everyone on the same page.

"So the 49ers have a general manager opening. They have a head coach opening. My understanding, they want to get someone to work in tandem, maybe even hiring a pair together or a coach and GM that have a previous relationship to make sure there's nothing misconstrued, there's no arguments over the roster, make sure everyone sees it the right way, to try to return this once proud organization to prominence.

"That's something Jed York wants badly and something he's spending millions of dollars in former coaches salaries to get."

"That Super Bowl-loss hangover is real," Burleson explained as part of his reasoning. NFL insider Ian Rapoport isn't so sure. At least, not when it comes to the 49ers. He feels San Francisco may be uniquely built to overcome predictions of a decline. "I thought the Niners had kind of a really good offseason," Rapoport said on KNBR's Murph & Mac show Tuesday morning. "It wasn't like very exciting. The Trent Williams trade was exciting.

Rapoport discusses Jimmy Garoppolo's inconsistent performance during 49ers-Cardinals

NFL insider Ian Rapoport seemed a little surprised to hear about Monday morning's local criticisms of quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo following the San Francisco 49ers' Week 1 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. "Is that what's going on this morning? Is it Jimmy G is terrible?" Rapoport asked on KNBR's Murph & Mac show Monday morning. While Garoppolo's numbers, at first glance, look comparable to his Cardinals counterpart, Kyler Murray, anyone who watched the game knows that the latter was the better quarterback on the football field at Levi's Stadium on Sunday. Much of that had to do with the nearly 100 rushing yards Murray had against the 49ers defense. You throw out his two kneel-downs to end the game, and he is right at the century mark. "I
