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."
