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.

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

Wednesday was a heartbreaking and embarrassing day for America. The public watched on television and streaming platforms as angry supporters of President Donald Trump, encouraged by Trump, stormed the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday in an attempt to disrupt the peaceful transfer of power to President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris. Included in those watching in horror were several San Francisco 49ers players, including Richard Sherman, who, like so many, wondered how the situation might have been handled differently by authorities had the skin color of those taking part in the chaotic mob been different. The cornerback didn't mince words, calling the angry protesters

Seahawks ran unneeded play late in win over 49ers to get WR David Moore $100,000 bonus

By Kirk Larrabee

There are times when a winning team running an unnecessary play with the game in hand would be something that falls under the category of poor sportsmanship, but it turns out the Seattle Seahawks had a good reason to do so against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. The Seahawks had the lead and the ball with 22 seconds to play in their 26-23 win over the 49ers, which is a situation where teams would usually kneel on the ball to run out the clock. But they decided instead to run a short five-yard pass play to wide receiver David Moore, which left some observers confused. After the game, it was revealed the Seahawks ran the play for Moore so he could get a performance bonus of $100,000. Moore's contract stipulates that he gets the bonus for 35 receptions on the
