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.

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters after training camp practice today. Here is everything he had to say. Transcript provided by the San Francisco 49ers Communications staff. QB Trey Lance seemed to get some reps with ones. What was thinking behind that? Why today? "We have seven day install. A certain play that went in a day that we wanted all the lines to get reps with and we're only going to do that play with Trey." He was pretty sharp passer today, especially the long pass to WR Trent Sherfield. How have you seen his arm come along, accuracy? How has he thrown this camp?

49ers WR Jalen Hurd has experienced 'no setbacks,' says Mike McDaniel

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Jalen Hurd is entering his third NFL season. He has yet to appear in an NFL regular-season game. Hurd spent the last two seasons on injured reserve. A back injury kept him out of his rookie 2019 campaign. The wideout suffered an ACL injury during training camp last year. The 49ers like what they see in Hurd when he is available. He's just had some unfortunate luck at the start of his NFL career. But — knock on wood — Hurd reportedly looks good in training camp again, and the coaching staff hopes to finally get the former third-round pick on the field this season. "Yeah, we've seen no setbacks," offensive coordinator Mike McDaniel said after practice on Thursday. "Every time he's been on the field, we've

Dee Ford hit the practice field with his San Francisco 49ers teammates today — the team's first practice of training camp. The veteran pass rusher didn't participate in team drills but did get some work during individual drills. Ford appeared in just one game last season before being sidelined for the remaining games due to neck and back problems. There was some concern whether or not he would even be ready for the start of the 2021 season, given the severity of the injuries. Ford reportedly looked good in today's limited work. However, the 49ers will remain cautious with his progression. "I've seen the history, and we've got to be smart with it," head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters after practice. "It's been a tough situation for him and

San Francisco 49ers linebacker Azeez Al-Shaair suffered an injury during red zone drills in practice on Monday. It occurred on a run play and appeared to be a non-contact injury. Al-Shaair walked off the field with the team's medical staff and linebacker Fred Warner. After practice, head coach Kyle Shanahan informed reporters that the team is "pretty optimistic" about the injury after very early preliminary examinations. Al-Shaair has been with the 49ers since he signed with the team as an undrafted free agent out of Florida Atlantic in 2019. He has recorded 53 tackles, a tackle for a loss, a quarterback hit, an interception, two passes defensed, and a forced fumble in 31 games and nine starts with the team. Other
