Future 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan wins Assistant Coach of the Year award

Feb 4, 2017 at 5:04 PM--


Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan's offense was the top scoring in the NFL. Sometime after his Falcons play the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LI on Sunday, Shanahan is expected to become the next head coach of the San Francisco 49ers.

On Saturday, the Falcons coordinator won the Assistant Coach of the Year award at the NFL Honors ceremony in Houston. He was considered the favorite for the award.


Kyle Shanahan, who is 37, is the son of former Los Angeles Raiders, Denver Broncos, and Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan. The elder Shanahan also served as the 49ers' offensive coordinator under head coach George Seifert in the 90s.

Under Shanahan, the Falcons offense was ranked first in scoring, second in total yards, third in passing yards, and fifth in rushing yards this season. In 2015, the Falcons led the league in time of possession (32:19).

Shanahan will be joining new 49ers general manager John Lynch and the duo will work to rebuild what is considered to be one of the least talented rosters in the league.

There was no shortage of topics to talk about from a 49ers perspective after Sunday's 33-17 win over the Miami Dolphins, and we're going to dive right into them in this edition of 49ers Notebook. While much of Sunday's postgame discussion dealt with the season-ending foot injury to quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and the performance of Garoppolo's replacement, Brock Purdy, there were a number of other interesting and entertaining moments we're going to get into here, including some pointed (but friendly) words defensive end Nick Bosa had for head coach Kyle Shanahan and a bit of smack talk from wide receiver Deebo Samuel to former 49ers running back Raheem Mostert.

There are a lot of storylines surrounding the upcoming Week 13 matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and the Miami Dolphins.
