49ers Interview Schedule: Kyle Shanahan, Vikings assistant GM and beyond

Jan 6, 2017 at 9:41 AM--


The San Francisco 49ers have been busy traveling to interview candidates for their vacant head coach and general manager positions. You can keep track of the entire search using our up-to-date general manager and head coach tracker.

It is the first time that the organization is trying to fill both spots since 2005 when the 49ers hired Mike Nolan and then Scot McCloughan. The search and interview process will be led by 49ers CEO Jed York and Chief Strategy Officer & Executive Vice President of Football Operations Paraag Marathe.

"Ultimately, the decision will rest with me," York said on Monday of the hiring process. "I will look at people inside the building and continue to consult people outside of the building, folks that I trust, folks that are very well respected. But, our system and our structure is going to be a head coach and a general manager and ultimately that decision will rest with me."

Below is a list of the known interviews that have already taken place and will take place. The big news from today is the meeting with Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan, the son of former Denver Broncos and Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan, who is considered to be one of the great young minds in the NFL. First, the 49ers will interview Minnesota Vikings assistant general manager George Paton – which was scheduled for early this morning.

The NFL will announce the entire 2022 slate of matchups on Thursday night. That's when we'll learn the dates and times for all 272 regular-season games. However, we've known the opponents for a while now. If the San Francisco 49ers are to return to the playoffs for the third time in four years, it won't be an easy road. San Francisco's upcoming opponents went 154-135 in 2021. The team's schedule will include seven matchups against opponents coming off a playoff appearance (Rams twice, Cardinals twice, Chiefs, Buccaneers, Raiders). Those opponents had a total winning percentage of .533 in 2021, which is good enough to tie with the Kansas City Chiefs as the fifth-toughest schedule

In a move that was expected since last month, the Jacksonville Jaguars have officially hired San Francisco 49ers' vice president of player personnel Ethan Waugh as the team's assistant general manager. This offseason, Waugh was promoted from director of college scouting and football systems to his departing title with the 49ers, so the role was short-lived. The Jaguars have officially hired 49ers VP Ethan Waugh as assistant GM. Leaves the Niners with a more traditional setup—with Adam Peters as ass't GM, Ran Carthon

The NFL will unveil the league's complete 272-game 2022 schedule on Thursday night at 5:00 p.m. PT. It is common for select week-to-week opponent matchups to leak before the official announcement. I've created this tracker to collect those leaks as the official schedule release time approaches. As usual, the San Francisco 49ers will meet each NFC West team twice. On May 4, the NFL revealed that the 49ers will travel to Mexico City on November 21 to face the Arizona Cardinals at Estadio Azteca—a Week 11 primetime matchup on ESPN's Monday Night Football. The 49ers will face the third-place teams in the NFC East, NFC North, and AFC East. The team is also slated to play the entire NFC South and AFC West. NFL Kickoff Weekend will begin on
