49ers to hire Mike McDaniel as run game specialist

Feb 13, 2017 at 1:01 PM--


Kyle Shanahan will be calling the offensive plays as the head coach of the San Francisco 49ers. That makes it unnecessary to formally announce an offensive coordinator for the team. What the 49ers will have is a run game specialist and that man will be Mike McDaniel, who previously served as an offensive assistant with the Atlanta Falcons.


McDaniel spent the past two seasons serving under Shanahan with the Falcons and has been rumored as a potential candidate to join the 49ers in some role. He spent the 2014 season as the wide receivers coach with the Cleveland Browns, again under Shanahan. Prior to joining the staff in Cleveland, he spent three seasons with the Washington Redskins, starting as an offensive assistant in 2011 before being promoted to wide receivers coach in 2013.

NFL analyst Daniel Jeremiah points out that one of the subplots within the coach-interviewing flurry across the league is that multiple top candidates plan on running the scheme that Shanahan runs in San Francisco (h/t to Patrick Tulini). That could mean a run on assistants familiar with the system, and the 49ers have an abundance of

In addition to potentially losing defensive coordinator Robert Saleh, San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan could find himself losing two trusted assistants on the offensive side too. Passing-game coordinator Mike LaFleur and run-game coordinator Mike McDaniel are expected to draw interest from potential new head coaches around the league. This year, thanks to new league rules, Shanahan cannot block interviews with LaFleur and McDaniel, so long as they are up for promotions to coordinator jobs.
