Mike Silver: “One person Jed York will talk to a lot is Bill Parcells”

Jan 2, 2017 at 12:05 PM--


Mike Silver of NFL Network appeared on "NFL Total Access" today and discussed San Francisco 49ers CEO Jed York and the process of hiring a new general manager and head coach following the firings of Trent Baalke and Chip Kelly.

Earlier today, York was awkwardly pressed during his press conference to reveal some names of people that he is in contact with to help him in the search. He also said that he has had discussions with several other "very well respected people," but did not want to offer names – with some being Super Bowl winning and Hall of Fame coaches.

"One person Jed York will talk to a lot is Bill Parcells, for example," Silver revealed. "Jed York knows he's going to take a lot of criticism right now and frankly he deserves that, but give the man credit. 2-14 is not close to acceptable. He does model himself after his uncle Eddie DeBartolo and, trust me, what Jed York said in response to a somewhat hostile question, 'I own the team. That's the fact,' Eddie would have said much less delicately and made a stronger point.

"He's trying to get it right. He wants a partnership between a GM and a head coach who are linked together. He wants to re-establish a championship culture. He's willing to spend his own money in pursuit of that. I think we should give him a chance. At least he's cutting his losses."

In addition to potentially losing defensive coordinator Robert Saleh, San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan could find himself losing two trusted assistants on the offensive side too. Passing-game coordinator Mike LaFleur and run-game coordinator Mike McDaniel are expected to draw interest from potential new head coaches around the league. This year, thanks to new league rules, Shanahan cannot block interviews with LaFleur and McDaniel, so long as they are up for promotions to coordinator jobs. Reports state Saleh may be interested in making LaFleur his offensive coordinator, should he land a head-coaching job. That much was

The San Francisco 49ers embark on an offseason filled with more questions than answers. However, the main focus of the media will be on the team's quarterback situation. Will Jimmy Garoppolo be back in 2021, or has he suited up in red and gold for the last time? The 49ers players know the situation and eagerly await to see how it is resolved. They want to see Garoppolo return and endorsed him as the team's quarterback in 2021. "We'll see," wide receiver Kendrick Bourne said when asked about the situation. "I don't know if they're talking about drafting anybody, but I believe in Jimmy, I believe in [C.J. Beathard] and [Nick Mullens]. I play with all those guys. I caught a touchdown from each one of them, so I don't really mind who's back there,

Multiple coaching candidates plan to run Kyle Shanahan's scheme; Dolphins interested in 49ers' Mike McDaniel

By David Bonilla
Jan 14, 2021

The San Francisco 49ers may fall victim to the effect of running what many consider to be a successful and innovative scheme — the poaching of talent. Despite the six-win season, the team is just a year removed from a Super Bowl appearance, and head coach Kyle Shanahan remains one of the most highly-respected offensive minds in the league. NFL analyst Daniel Jeremiah points out that one of the subplots within the coach-interviewing flurry across the league is that multiple top candidates plan on running the scheme that Shanahan runs in San Francisco (h/t to Patrick Tulini). That could mean a run on assistants familiar with the system, and the 49ers have an abundance of
