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.

Rapoport: Kyle Shanahan says 49ers are 'definitely considering' Mac Jones but isn't tipping hand

First off, let's make it clear that it would be irresponsible for the San Francisco 49ers to deny anything when it comes to guesswork surrounding their 2021 NFL Draft intentions. Yes, they own the No. 3 overall pick, but that doesn't mean they want everyone to know what they plan to do. Everyone expects quarterbacks Trevor Lawrence and Zach Wilson to go one and two in the draft ... but it's the NFL Draft. Nothing is a certainty. A national narrative has been created that indicates the favorite to land with San Francisco is former Alabama quarterback Mac Jones. Maybe that will be the case. Maybe not. The team could also select Justin Fields of Ohio State or Trey Lance of North Dakota State. Head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch are expected to



Zierlein: Trey Lance is the perfect playmaker for Kyle Shanahan's 49ers

It's been nearly two weeks since NFL Media analyst Lance Zierlein released his last mock draft. In it, he had the San Francisco 49ers selecting Trey Lance of North Dakota State with the No. 3 overall pick instead of Justin Fields of Ohio State or Mac Jones of Alabama. It doesn't sound like his opinion of what head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch should do come April 29 has changed. While Zierlein's colleagues, Steve Wyche and Maurice Jones-Drew, made excellent cases for Fields to be San Francisco's pick, Zierlein stuck with his choice of Lance and defended the decision during a segment on NFL Network. "This is the guy San Francisco should be

NFL running back turned analyst Maurice Jones-Drew released his second mock draft and didn't have the San Francisco 49ers selecting Mac Jones, going against the national media narrative that the Alabama quarterback is a near-lock to join Kyle Shanahan in the Bay Area. Jones-Drew sees another prospect as a perfect fit for the 49ers head coach's offense. With Trevor Lawrence and Zach Wilson expected to be off the draft board by San Francisco's pick at No. 3, Jones-Drew has Shanahan and general manager John Lynch selecting Justin Fields of Ohio State. On Wednesday, the two 49ers decision-makers will head to Columbus, Ohio, to watch the former Buckeye throw
