The San Francisco 49ers are expected to hire Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan as their new head coach. Shanahan and the 49ers will begin conducting a second round of interviews with potential general manager candidates on Saturday, January 28. The Falcons are preparing for Super Bowl LI against the New England Patriots.

The 49ers can meet with Shanahan because the Falcons will be enjoying a bye week. Atlanta is spending the beginning of the week preparing to face New England.

A long time ago, I thought the most unprecedented event in the sports world was Game 3 of the 1989 World Series getting pushed back ten days due to an earthquake. Sports will find a way to endure - through earthquakes, war, a global pandemic and if professional football is played before a couch-bound audience. The San Francisco 49ers will play sloppy football Sunday, but the other NFL franchises will join them.
