49ers Interview Schedule: Sean McVay, Brandon Beane today

Jan 9, 2017 at 8:37 AM--


The San Francisco 49ers are interviewing Washington Redskins offensive coordinator Sean McVay this morning for the vacant head coaching job and Carolina Panthers assistant general manager Brandon Beane later for the vacant general manager position.


McVay has been the offensive coordinator with Washington since 2014. Before that, he served as the tight ends coach and assistant tight ends coach with the team. McVay began his NFL coaching career in 2008 as an offensive assistant with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

McVay also met with the Los Angeles Rams on Thursday, who are on a head coach search of their own. He has guided a Washington offense that was ranked third in total offense and second in passing in 2016. At age 30, McVay is the youngest coordinator in the league and a promotion would make him the youngest head coach.

McVay's grandfather, John McVay, coached the New York Giants from 1976 until 1978 and served in various roles, including general manager, with the 49ers in the 1980s and 1990s.

In 2012, Beane served as the Panthers' interim general manager for the final 10 games of the season prior to the hiring of Dave Gettleman, the team's current general manager. Carolina promoted Beane to assistant general manager in June of 2015.

Prior to the promotion, Beane spent seven seasons as the team's director of football operations. He has been responsible for directing portions of the team's drafts, putting together the team's draft boards for the past five years and helping to execute trades for cornerback Bene Benwikere, wide receiver Devin Funchess and offensive tackle Daryl Williams.

Why Brandon Aiyuk is building excitement about the 49ers' future

Brandon Aiyuk came to play, yet again, during Sunday's early-morning 31-10 win against the Jacksonville Jaguars, catching all seven of his targets for 85 yards and a touchdown, leading the 49ers in all three categories. Aiyuk, who's been a major factor in the passing game over the last four weeks in a complementary role to star Deebo Samuel, has shown signs of his rookie self, and was a crucial player in the passing game for Jimmy Garoppolo, who seemed to trust his 23-year old receiver in key throwing situations. Samuel, who was utilized mainly as a rusher Sunday, only had one catch for 15 yards as opposed to eight carries for 79 yards and a touchdown. After the game, Kyle Shanahan had nothing but praise for his prized sophomore receiver, explaining

49ers wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk has been on a tear recently after a slow start to the season, as three of his highest offensive outputs have come over the last four weeks. In addition, Aiyuk reeled in all seven of his targets for 85 yards and a touchdown against the Jacksonville Jaguars, leading the 49ers in all those categories. With the second-year receiver taking a step forward recently after "talking" with head coach Kyle Shanahan, the 49ers have turned their own season around, as they're winners of two straight and three of their last four games, putting them at 5-5 overall and in eighth place in the NFC playoff seeding before a highly-touted matchup with a fellow playoff contender in the Minnesota Vikings this week. In Aiyuk's resurgence, the receiver has
