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.

Kyle Juszczyk: Kyle Shanahan and Mike McDaniel's vision makes the 49ers dangerous

By David Bonilla
Jul 21, 2021

Kyle Juszczyk spent his first four NFL seasons with the Baltimore Ravens before signing with the San Francisco 49ers in 2017. The best fullback in the league re-signed with the team in March, ensuring he remains in the Bay Area through the 2025 season. It sounds like Juszczyk has no regrets about the decision to remain with head coach Kyle Shanahan. It's an offensive scheme that suits him and takes advantage of his unique versatility. Juszczyk may not have had the same opportunities with another organization. "I definitely have had the most fun in San Francisco because I am a little more featured," Juszczyk said this week on The Ross Tucker Football Podcast. "'Featured' is different as a fullback. I'm not the featured halfback or the No. 1 receiver. ...

49ers' Kyle Shanahan: 'There's no open competition right now' between Jimmy Garoppolo, Trey Lance

Trey Lance may well find himself as the starting quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers before the season's out, but he clearly won't be starting training camp that way based on what head coach Kyle Shanahan said Tuesday. The 49ers obviously plan on Lance eventually being the starter over incumbent Jimmy Garoppolo after trading up to select him with the third overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. But as of now, the job remains Garoppolo's to lose. "There's no open competition right now in terms of they're getting equal reps with the same group," Shanahan told reporters Tuesday, one day before the start of camp. "Jimmy's coming in as the one and Trey's coming in as the two." Lance



Kyle Shanahan confirms 49ers never made an offer for Matthew Stafford

By David Bonilla

After last season, the San Francisco 49ers looked at all of their quarterback options heading into free agency and the draft. At the time, the team owned the No. 12 overall pick, and the quarterback they were falling in love with, Trey Lance, probably wasn't going to fall that far. So the Niners did their due diligence on all possibilities, including a pre-draft call to the Green Bay Packers to see what was going on with Aaron Rodgers. Before that, reports often linked San Francisco to other quarterbacks like Matthew Stafford and Deshaun Watson. Head coach Kyle Shanahan already admitted to being interested in the former, saying that he was trying to get the 49ers involved in the talks for the former Detroit Lions quarterback. However, much to Shanahan's disappointment, the
