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 Shanahan, Jimmy Garoppolo leaving door open for QB to remain with 49ers in 2022

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan was asked about the future of the team's quarterback position. Jimmy Garoppolo is the starter right now. His eventual successor is rookie Trey Lance. That plan has not changed. The timing of the transition, however, is uncertain. Garoppolo has played well over this recent four-game stretch. San Francisco has won three of its last four, and the quarterback owns the league's best passer rating (113.2) during that span. If Garoppolo leads the 49ers into the playoffs, the team might not be eager to part ways with the veteran. Shanahan was asked if the Garoppolo to Lance transition could be delayed, given the former's recent success. Might the 49ers hold onto Garoppolo for the 2022 season? "I think there's a

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing to play the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. Head coach Kyle Shanahan, defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans, and quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo spoke with reporters before today's practice. Here is everything they had to say.

49ers' Kyle Shanahan: Dre Greenlaw had a good practice, Dee Ford 'feeling great'

San Francisco 49ers linebacker Dre Greenlaw is on track to be activated from injured reserve after having his practice window opened last week. Head coach Kyle Shanahan hopes Greenlaw and defensive end Dee Ford can be activated in time for Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings. That's the plan, for now. Ford did not practice during Wednesday's session but is expected to do so on Thursday. He's been on injured reserve since November 6 due to a back injury. Greenlaw underwent core muscle surgery and has been on injured reserve since September 18. "Greenlaw did a good job out there today," Shanahan said during KNBR's Tolbert, Krueger & Brooks show. "He'll go meet with the trainers now and tell them how it felt and stuff. Dee, we don't want to put



Deebo at RB? Jennings at FB? Why the position changes can even confuse 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel played 10 snaps in the backfield, rushing eight times for 79 yards against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He wasn't the only receiver that lined up in the backfield. Jauan Jennings had one snap as a fullback. And let's not forget Trent Williams, who was an eligible receiver on one play. However, it's not like he lined up on the outside. And everyone knew Jimmy Garoppolo was likely going to look in the big offensive lineman's direction, leading to the defense being aggressive with him on coverage. Head coach Kyle Shanahan joined KNBR on Wednesday afternoon and explained why playing some of his guys out of position, as
