Mike Silver to Jed York: Meet with David Shaw and bring a big bag of money

Jan 3, 2017 at 3:57 PM--


Mike Silver was on NFL Network and had a tip for San Francisco 49ers CEO Jed York on his search for a new head coach. He wants York to take a little drive up the road and visit with Stanford Cardinal head coach David Shaw.

"Jed York is under fire and with good reason," Silver said. "He chose Trent Baalke over Jim Harbaugh. He chose Jim Tomsula over Adam Gase. He chose Chip Kelly over Hue Jackson. He needs to hit this one and the GM hire is important, but if you want to save the day in San Francisco, take your car up the road, quietly meet with David Shaw at Stanford with a big bad of money and make your case.

This is a guy that has not only done a phenomenal job in college, as much as it pains me to say that but has NFL ties. And people say, 'Why would he ever leave?' And I understand that, but David Shaw's father Willie was a long time NFL coach in a less enlightened time and was denied, I believe, a lot of great opportunities. He should have been a head coach, I think. If that was my dad and I could come back to the league that denied my dad as the man that could make it all awesome, I would listen. So I think you have that conversation first and then look at this otherwise exciting pool of candidates."

"You don't even have to move, David Shaw," Silver added. "It's right there for you. Jim Harbaugh did it. You could be next."

Shaw's name was linked to the 49ers during their head coaching search following the 2015 season. However, in January of last year, Jon Wilner of Bay Area News Group reported that Shaw had no plans to interview with San Francisco.

Shaw has been the head coach at Stanford since the departure of Jim Harbaugh for the 49ers in 2011. Prior to that, he served as the Cardinal's offensive coordinator. During his time there, he has won three Pac-12 championships and been voted the Pac-12 Coach of the Year three times. Shaw, who is currently earning a salary of $3.9 million, has an overall record of 64-17 with Stanford and a Bowl record of 4-2.

Kyle Juszczyk: Kyle Shanahan and Mike McDaniel's vision makes the 49ers dangerous

Jul 21, 2021

Kyle Juszczyk spent his first four NFL seasons with the Baltimore Ravens before signing with the San Francisco 49ers in 2017. The best fullback in the league re-signed with the team in March, ensuring he remains in the Bay Area through the 2025 season. It sounds like Juszczyk has no regrets about the decision to remain with head coach Kyle Shanahan. It's an offensive scheme that suits him and takes advantage of his unique versatility. Juszczyk may not have had the same opportunities with another organization. "I definitely have had the most fun in San Francisco because I am a little more featured," Juszczyk said this week on The Ross Tucker Football Podcast. "'Featured' is different as a fullback. I'm not the featured halfback or the No. 1 receiver. ...

While San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan has always expressed significant confidence in his right tackle, Mike McGlinchey, fans and analysts have often been less than complimentary while discussing the offensive lineman's career as a whole. In May, the 49ers exercised McGlinchey's fifth-year option, meaning he will be with the team through the 2022 season. Beyond that, who knows? After defending himself against critics for much of last season, McGlinchey eventually admitted that there was room for improvement. "I think there's a lot of things I did really well all year," McGlinchey said in December. "There's things I did a lot better than last year.
