Falcons likely to block other coaches from going to 49ers with Kyle Shanahan

Jan 19, 2017 at 8:31 AM--


Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan has a lot of respect for the defensive coaches on his team. After all, he goes up against them every practice. There was some speculation, especially with every other new head coach in the league having a head start on building their staffs, that Shanahan might try to bring one of the defensive positional coaches on the team with him to be his defensive coordinator with the San Francisco 49ers. Of course, the 49ers would prefer a veteran defensive coordinator be paired with the first time head coach, but options may be limited.

Losing Shanahan may be all that the Falcons are willing to endure. They aren't likely to allow Shanahan to poach any of the team's positional coaches – on offense or defense – once he becomes the new head coach of the 49ers, per Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area.


Shanahan has only been with the Falcons for two seasons. Prior to that, he held the same position with the Cleveland Browns, Washington Redskins, and Houston Texans. Shanahan was the offensive coordinator in Washington at the same time that his father, Mike Shanahan, was the head coach.

Once the Falcons are done with their postseason play, the 49ers are expected to immediately offer Shanahan a multi-year deal and the Atlanta coordinator is expected to accept. Regardless of what happens in the NFC Championship Game against the Green Bay Packers, the 49ers plan to meet with Shanahan next week and are hoping that he can be part in their second round of general manager interviews. Of course, the 49ers are currently checking with the league to see if that would be allowed.

Alex Mack on 49ers' QB situation: 'I want the guy who's going to win games'

The San Francisco 49ers might be approaching a crossroads. Eventually, a quarterback decision will need to be made. Jimmy Garoppolo is the team's undisputed starter right now. However, his injury history made the 49ers uncomfortable to the point that the team drafted Trey Lance this offseason. Lance is the future. He will eventually succeed Garoppolo. When that happens is anybody's guess. Garoppolo sustained a calf injury during Week 4, forcing Lance to start Week 5 — when the rookie suffered a knee sprain. Things are trending toward Garoppolo starting this weekend against the Indianapolis Colts. The veteran passer was out on the practice field with his
