49ers plan to offer Kyle Shanahan a six-year deal

Jan 29, 2017 at 6:50 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers made a shocker of a move on Sunday night with the hiring of former Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Denver Broncos safety John Lynch as their new general manager. The 49ers are finalizing a six-year deal for Lynch.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the 49ers also plan to offer Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan a deal of the same length.


The 49ers have to wait until after Super Bowl LI to officially hire Shanahan, who is now preparing his Falcons to face the New England Patriots. The Falcons left for Houston on Sunday.

San Francisco's previous two head coach hires, Jim Tomsula and Chip Kelly, both received four-year deals.

Shanahan met with the 49ers for a second time on Friday. He and the 49ers had a lengthy interview with Minnesota Vikings assistant general manager George Paton, who had been assumed to be the frontrunner for the job, on Friday and Saturday. Shanahan had originally interviewed with the 49ers on January 6.

Arizona Cardinals vice president of player personnel Terry McDonough also interviewed with Shanahan and the 49ers on Saturday.

Shanahan has been with Atlanta since 2015 and has nine years of experience as an offensive coordinator. Prior to his two years with Atlanta, he held the same position with the Cleveland Browns, Washington Redskins, and Houston Texans.

King proposes 49ers offer Jimmy Garoppolo, next year's 2nd-round pick for Matthew Stafford

Matthew Stafford has the statistics of an elite NFL quarterback, passing for over 4,000 yards eight times over his 12-year career. What he lacks is playoff success. He has yet to win a playoff game. Peter King of NBC Sports questions whose fault that is, though. Is it Stafford's fault? Or does the blame fall on the Detroit Lions, who can never put enough talent around the quarterback? Stafford has also seen a revolving door of coaches and general managers come through. King believes the blame falls on the organization more than the quarterback. "He's been a shining light for a bad franchise and deserves to have a chance to win in the last few years of his career," King

Multiple coaching candidates plan to run Kyle Shanahan's scheme; Dolphins interested in 49ers' Mike McDaniel

The San Francisco 49ers may fall victim to the effect of running what many consider to be a successful and innovative scheme — the poaching of talent. Despite the six-win season, the team is just a year removed from a Super Bowl appearance, and head coach Kyle Shanahan remains one of the most highly-respected offensive minds in the league. NFL analyst Daniel Jeremiah points out that one of the subplots within the coach-interviewing flurry across the league is that multiple top candidates plan on running the scheme that Shanahan runs in San Francisco (h/t to Patrick Tulini). That could mean a run on assistants familiar with the system, and the 49ers have an abundance of

49ers have one thing no other team can offer Deshaun Watson

In the end, it may come down to what the San Francisco 49ers — or any other interested NFL team — can offer the Houston Texans for quarterback Deshaun Watson. Yes, Watson does have a no-trade clause in his contract. If he pushed the Texans to trade him, the quarterback would at least have the power to approve of his destination. The divide between Watson and the Texans has made for an interesting offseason so far, at least for the teams not participating in postseason play. The young quarterback would be considered an upgrade for most of the teams watching the playoffs from home. San Francisco 49ers fans have to wonder what kind of magic Kyle Shanahan might dial up with
