Seahawks exec Trent Kirchner pulls name from 49ers’ candidate list

Jan 17, 2017 at 1:44 PM--


Another candidate for a job with the San Francisco 49ers has taken his name out of the running. This time, it was for the general manager position with the team. Seahawks co-director of player personnel Trent Kirchner will remain in Seattle, per Mike Garafolo of NFL Network.


Kirchner was one of two Seahawks executives that were interviewed for the 49ers' vacancy. The other was co-directory of player personnel Scott Fitterer. Both were interviewed by CEO Jed York and vice president of football operations Paraag Marathe on Monday.

The 49ers announced the firing of general manager Trent Baalke following the team's final game of the 2016 season.

On Monday, New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels took his name out of the running for the 49ers' head coaching vacancy, leaving Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan and Seattle Seahawks assistant head coach and offensive line coach Tom Cable as the only known candidates for the job formerly held by Chip Kelly.

Kirchner was a name that was linked with Cable. Could this be an indication that the Seahawks coach will not be hired by the 49ers or, as Garafolo explained, was it simply because of his great working relationship with Seattle general manager John Schneider? With Shanahan as the overwhelming fan favorite, the Niner Faithful is likely hoping the former to be true.

Today, ESPN's Jeremy Fowler wrapped up his rankings of NFL players by position group. He capped off the series by ranking the league's top tight ends.

"The objective is to identify the best players right now for 2021," wrote Fowler. "This is not a five-year projection or an achievement award. Who's the best today? Pretty simple."

How well do the 2021 49ers stack up to the 2019 team? Lately I have listened to some podcasts and read some tweets comparing the current San Francisco 49ers team (2021) to the 2019 team that fell just short of winning the Super Bowl. I find the comparison interesting. And since many people quickly assume the 2021 49ers are not as good as the 2019 team, I wanted to take a look for myself. So as we prepare for the team to report on Tuesday, let's compare the two teams, position by position. For the purpose of this very scientific experiment, we will assume everyone is healthy (even though that never happens). Let's start on offense. The defensive comparison is coming soon.

'What's with their coach?': 49ers' Jimmie Ward feels disrespected by Rams' Sean McVay

Does Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay think less of safety Jimmie Ward than he should? The San Francisco 49ers defender appears to believe so. In a conversation with Grant Cohn of Sports Illustrated, the soon-to-be 30-year-old safety feels like McVay unfairly targets him, thinking he can take advantage of the veteran defensive back. The safety and beat writer remembered a matchup in 2019 when McVay tested Ward's coverage skills with several offensive players, likely thinking he could take advantage of the defender. "What's with their coach? Does he have the big head or something like (that)?" Ward told Cohn during
