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.

49ers' Kyle Shanahan says surgeries for Mike McGlinchey, Javon Kinlaw 'went real well'

The season ended prematurely for offensive tackle Mike McGlinchey and defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw. McGlinchey suffered a torn quad in the San Francisco 49ers' November 7 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. Kinlaw has been dealing with a knee injury that was initially sustained at the end of last season. He recently underwent ACL reconstruction. "Evaluation of the knee in surgery confirmed suspicions that the ACL had chronic changes that would be best treated with ACL reconstruction," read a joint statement from the 49ers medical staff, Dr. Tim McAdams, and Dr. Neal ElAttrache. "This procedure gives him the best opportunity to make a full recovery and return to



Kyle Shanahan says Trey Lance knows the entire 49ers playbook, explains rookie's absence vs. Rams

San Francisco 49ers rookie quarterback Trey Lance's last in-game snaps came in Week 5. He has been suited up and available the last three games, but head coach Kyle Shanahan has kept him sidelined. That's a departure from the sparing use of the dynamic quarterback earlier in the season. Shanahan was on a conference call with reporters today and was asked if Lance's absence was because of a decision to give Jimmy Garoppolo every snap moving forward. "No, I haven't made that decision," Shanahan responded. "The only time I did that, really, was Chicago week. Then Arizona, the game just didn't go the way we wanted. Going into this game, we didn't like a lot of the stuff in terms of what the Rams did, so we still had it up, but we didn't see it as changing the defense



49ers coach Kyle Shanahan says Trey Sermon is improving but 'there is a pecking order'

Trey Sermon was a third-round pick in April's draft. However, the San Francisco 49ers' sixth-round pick, Elijah Mitchell, is the team's starting running back and leading rusher. Sermon had 10 carries during Sunday's 30-10 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars. Before that, his last carry came in Week 5 against the Arizona Cardinals. Sermon moved up the depth chart because Mitchell was inactive due to rib and finger injuries. Kyle Shanahan insists that Sermon is showing improvement. On Monday, one day after the team's Week 11 win, the 49ers coach spoke with reporters and discussed the developing rookie running back. "I think he's better now than when he was given the last opportunity," Shanahan said of Sermon. "I know I get these questions about Trey



Watch out NFL: Kyle Shanahan says 49ers' Nick Bosa is 'getting better each week'

San Francisco 49ers defensive end Nick Bosa racked up nine sacks during his NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year campaign in 2019. He has already surpassed that mark through 10 games this season. Bosa's 10 sacks are tied for the fifth-most in the NFL. Imagine the number he could have amassed if he wasn't being held so often by blockers doing whatever they can to prevent the dominating defender from getting to their quarterbacks. On Sunday, you saw it with Jacksonville's Jawaan Taylor holding onto Bosa, who still managed to reach rookie quarterback Trevor Lawrence. "The reason why [he's being held so often] is he's so good and so fast at taking that inside move,"
