Watch: Kyle Shanahan greets the Niner Faithful

Feb 8, 2017 at 3:56 PM--


New San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan and his wife, Mandy, arrived in the Bay Area on Wednesday and, along with new general manager John Lynch, officially signed their six-year contracts with the team. Shanahan took a moment to give a brief shoutout to the Niner Faithful via the 49ers' official Twitter account.


"I just want to say, 'What's up?' to all the Niner Faithful," Shanahan said in the video that was shot in front of the team's headquarters in Santa Clara. "Just got here with my wife and I. We just flew in from Atlanta. So excited to be here you guys. I lived here throughout middle school and was part of the Niners organization just as a ball boy. Won some Super Bowls back then and can't wait to get started again.

"Just give us some time. Be patient with us. I promise you guys we're going to work as hard as anyone and do things the right way with good people, high character guys and it's going to be a lot of work, tough work, but I promise you guys it'll be worth it. And we'll do this right way and make you guys proud and will not let you guys down. Look forward to talking to you all."

Shanahan and Lynch will be formally introduced during a press conference on Thursday at 1 p.m. PT. You can watch the press conference via 49ers.com or CSN Bay Area.

One of the biggest debates since the San Francisco 49ers' Week 2 win over the Seattle Seahawks has been head coach Kyle Shanahan's use of Trey Lance. Many feel that the excessive use of quarterback runs unnecessarily put the second-year player in harm's way. Lance ended up suffering a season-ending ankle injury in the first quarter. During an interview on 95.7 The Game, fullback Kyle Juszczyk defended his head coach. He doesn't understand the criticism directed in Shanahan's direction, and the growing lack of trust from a very vocal segment of the fanbase. "I think he deserves that trust, and he's built that reputation to have that trust," Juszczyk told Damon Bruce and Ray Ratto. "He's had so much success in the decisions that he has made here that I think he's



49ers-Seahawks: Kyle Shanahan says George Kittle still has a chance to play, isn't optimistic about Daniel Brunskill

Neither tight end George Kittle nor offensive lineman Daniel Brunskill practiced on Thursday. That's not a good sign regarding their potential availability for Sunday's pivotal Week 2 matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and the Seattle Seahawks. Kittle has not practiced since suffering a groin strain on September 5. Brunskill suffered a hamstring injury during the 49ers' exhibition opener and hasn't practiced since. Neither suited up this past weekend against the Chicago Bears. "Neither of them were able to [practice] today," Shanahan said Thursday on KNBR. "I'm holding out more hope for George. We haven't ruled Brunskill out yet, I don't believe, but I'd be shocked if Brunskill made it. George still has a chance." The 49ers are coming off a

Mike McDaniel's hygiene was in the headlines on Wednesday. The first-year head coach for the Miami Dolphins shared that he would often go from game days until late in the week without showering while serving as an assistant with the San Francisco 49ers. McDaniel doesn't do that now because, as a head coach, he has to meet with too many people regularly. Line of day: McDaniel says in SF he could push it from game day to almost Wednesday without showering. "Now, it would be obvious."— Hal Habib (@gunnerhal)
