Kyle Shanahan says Mike Shanahan won’t be on 49ers staff

Jan 30, 2017 at 5:36 PM--


Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan said today that his father, Mike Shanahan, won't be part of the San Francisco 49ers staff when he officially becomes the head coach of the team following Super Bowl LI, per Charles Robinson of Yahoo! Sports. Kyle Shanahan anticipates listening to the advice of his father, but they will not officially be working together.


The younger Shanahan is currently in Houston preparing for Super Bowl LI between his Falcons and the New England Patriots. A report from Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk surfaced on Friday that the younger Shanahan might use the great leverage he has over the 49ers to get his father a job within the organization.


Everyone seemed to be assuming that because Shanahan has leverage, he will choose to use it in such a manner. That hasn't sounded like the case so far. There had been reports that final say over the 53-man roster was not a deal breaker for Shanahan to come to the 49ers. Jim Trotter of ESPN reported on Monday that new 49ers general manager John Lynch would have control over the 90-man roster, draft, and free agency, but that Shanahan would have final say on the 53-man roster.

Lynch received a six-year deal with the 49ers, which he said Monday that he negotiated himself. It is expected that Shanahan will receive a deal of similar length once he is officially hired.

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. Shanahan was the offensive coordinator in Washington at the same time that his father was the head coach there.

Nick Mullens' confidence, command of the 49ers offense has grown since 2018, says Mike McGlinchey

On Sunday, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Nick Mullens got his first start since 2018. He may get another this weekend when the Niners host the Philadelphia Eagles at Levi's Stadium. That all depends on Jimmy Garoppolo's availability as he continues to recover from an ankle injury. Mullens looked good on Sunday against the New York Giants. Really good. The backup quarterback, who looked like a starter out there, went 25-of-36 for 343 yards with a touchdown and a 108.9 passer rating. He was in command of the offense and executed head coach Kyle Shanahan's plays to perfection. That gives the 49ers the option to take their time with Garoppolo's recovery. For those who believe there might be a quarterback controversy brewing in Santa Clara, Shanahan

49ers fear high-ankle sprain for Jimmy Garoppolo, ACL injury for Nick Bosa, says Kyle Shanahan

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters after the team's 31-13 victory over the New York Jets. While the Niners won the game, they walked away with several losses on the injury front. Shanahan said that the 49ers fear a high-ankle sprain for quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. That would likely force him to miss time. Shanahan didn't want to speculate on how much time that would be. Garoppolo suffered the injury in the first quarter as defensive tackle Quinnen Williams tackled him. Trainers worked on the quarterback on the sideline, taping up his foot and ankle. Garoppolo returned to the game but left for the locker room early before halftime to undergo X-rays. He completed 14 of 16 passes for 131 yards with two touchdowns, both

Don't count out Kyle Shanahan and the 49ers just yet, says Chris Simms

Things looked dire as the San Francisco 49ers left MetLife Stadium on Sunday. The team had seemingly lost two defenders to severe injuries, the starting quarterback, top two running backs, and others. Nick Bosa and Solomon Thomas were later confirmed to be lost for the season with ACL injuries. The news was better for Jimmy Garoppolo, but the quarterback is still week-to-week with a high-ankle sprain. Raheem Mostert isn't expected to miss too much time, but the same isn't true for Tevin Coleman, who head coach Kyle Shanahan said may miss four weeks and is a candidate for short-term injured reserve. After watching Shanahan's squad plummet in power rankings, one
