While San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch hits multiple locations on the other side of the country in order to scout college quarterbacks, head coach Kyle Shanahan remained close to home and is in attendance at Stanford's pro day.


Shanahan, running backs coach Bobby Turner, defensive line coach Jeff Zgonina, and other representatives from the team made the 13-mile trek west from the 49ers' headquarters in Santa Clara to watch the Stanford players hoping to be drafted or picked up by an NFL team starting next month.

The pro day will include top prospects like running back Christian McCaffrey and edge rusher Solomon Thomas. During an interview with the media at the NFL Scouting Combine, McCaffrey revealed that he had already met with the 49ers.

Seven other Stanford players are expected to showcase their talents at the pro day. They are wide receiver Michael Rector, wide receiver Francis Owusu, kicker Conrad Ukropina, safety Dallas Lloyd, linebacker Noor Davis, defensive lineman Jordan Watkins, and wide receiver Dontonio Jordan.

"The day consists of classroom testing, weight room evaluations, on-field agility drills and football-specific position drills," reports the school's official athletics website. The outdoor portion of the pro day is open to the public.

Klint Kubiak commends Kyle Shanahan after departing 49ers for Saints

By David Bonilla
Feb 15

Klint Kubiak is among several assistant coaches departing the San Francisco 49ers for opportunities elsewhere. He will serve as the New Orleans Saints' offensive coordinator after his stint as the 49ers' offensive passing game specialist. Kubiak only spent one season with the 49ers. Of course, it's unsurprising to see the considerable interest in head coach Kyle Shanahan's coaching staff, given the success many of his proteges have found across the league. Upon his departure, Kubiak had nothing but praise for his time working under Shanahan. "Just being here a year, my experience is, Kyle really lets you into his brain in his game plan meetings," Kubiak

Bayless on 49ers: I don't believe in Kyle Shanahan or Brock Purdy

By David Bonilla

The San Francisco 49ers' collapse in Super Bowl 58 has fueled skepticism from one controversial media personality, indicating a lack of trust in two key figures of the franchise. Skip Bayless is among those doubting quarterback Brock Purdy's capabilities, which isn't new information. Additionally, he questions head coach Kyle Shanahan's effectiveness. Bayless says he was confident that the Kansas City Chiefs would beat the 49ers because of superior coaching by Andy Reid and exceptional talent in quarterback Patrick Mahomes. With Steve Spagnuolo leading the Chiefs' defense, Bayless believes the result was inevitable. "I'm sorry. More than ever, I don't believe in Kyle Shanahan, and I don't believe in Brock Purdy," Bayless said on his FOX Sports podcast. "And I

Baldy weighs in on Kyle Shanahan's OT decision, 49ers being unaware of rule change

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan faced criticism for choosing to receive the football in overtime during Super Bowl 58 against the Kansas City Chiefs. Ultimately, the decision didn't work out for the 49ers, but the coach has no regrets about wanting his offense on the field to start the extra period. "We wanted the ball third," Shanahan explained after the game. "If both teams matched and scored, we wanted to be the ones who had the chance to go win and got that field goal. So we knew we had to hold them to at least a field goal, and if we did, then we thought it was in our hands." Brian Baldinger sees no issue with the decision. The NFL analyst joined Bay Area radio

Whether or not the weeks ahead bring any further fluctuation to the San Francisco 49ers' coaching staff remains to be seen, but as of Tuesday, head coach Kyle Shanahan carried the belief that his remaining coaches would be back with the team next season. That includes defensive coordinator Steve Wilks, who had some ups-and-downs in his first season with the team and went through interviews in January for the then-vacant head coaching positions of the Los Angeles Chargers and Atlanta Falcons. The 49ers saw passing game coordinator Klint Kubiak depart in recent days to become the offensive coordinator of the New Orleans Saints, but it doesn't seem like any other departures are imminent. Shanahan was asked during his season-ending press conference Tuesday with
