49ers, Shanahan ironing out final details of 6-year deal

Feb 6, 2017 at 2:46 PM--


Ian Rapoport of NFL Media is reporting that, as of Monday afternoon, the San Francisco 49ers and Kyle Shanahan are still "hammering out final details" of a six-year contract that will make the Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator the new head coach of the 49ers.

Rapoport: Shanahan has QB wishlist including Cousins, Garoppolo

"Should be done at some point either tonight or tomorrow then presumably a press conference over the next couple of days," Rapoport says. "And then Kyle Shanahan has to try and hire a staff. He has a couple of defensive coordinator hires in mind. Possible defensive coordinator hires – one is potentially Brian Flores, the Patriots linebackers coach. Robert Saleh who's the linebackers coach for the [Los Angeles] Chargers – that is another consideration.

"As far as offensive coordinator, he may not actually hire one. He may just hire a quarterbacks coach, then run the new offense in San Francisco himself."

Following the Falcons' devastating loss to the Patriots in Super Bowl LI, ESPN reported that Shanahan is ready to sign the contract and become the new head coach of the 49ers. "Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan will become the next head coach of the San Francisco 49ers once a contract is placed in front of him, a source told ESPN.com following the Falcons' 34-28 loss to the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LI," wrote Vaughn McClure of ESPN.

Shanahan, who interviewed with the 49ers twice and helped in the search for a new general manager, was not able to officially sign a contract with San Francisco until the Falcons' season was done. The 49ers gave former NFL All-Pro safety John Lynch a six-year deal to become the new general manager, a contract length that is expected to match Shanahan's.

The San Francisco 49ers officially announced that they have signed quarterback Josh Johnson to a one-year deal.

The 49ers Communications staff provided the following rundown. Johnson (6-3, 205) was originally drafted in the fifth round (160th overall) of the 2008 NFL Draft by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Tactical advantage could be out the window between 49ers' Kyle Shanahan and Dolphins' Mike McDaniel

The San Francisco 49ers are set to host the Miami Dolphins in a reunion between head coach Kyle Shanahan and his protégé Mike McDaniel. Shanahan has known McDaniel for 17 years. The two started working together with the Houston Texans in 2006 and were together for all but two years until the Dolphins hired the former 49ers offensive coordinator in February to be their head coach. Is Sunday's game more interesting for Shanahan, knowing that he is going against his former assistant? "Not really because I think we know their offense very well," Shanahan told NBC Sports Bay Area. "The defense knows their offense very well. It's very similar to ours. They know our defense very well. That's all Mike's gone against, so there's no secrets



49ers Notebook: Nick Bosa sends Kyle Shanahan a curse-filled message; Deebo responds to Raheem Mostert; Shanahan on Trey Lance, QBs; Players praise Brock Purdy

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. Let's get it started... Thank S***-talking Kyle Shanahan for Nick Bosa's
