Kyle Shanahan’s wife is the reason he always wears the same thing on 49ers game days

Jan 19, 2020 at 12:15 PM--

Almost every time Kyle Shanahan stepped onto the football field this season and headed to the sideline, he was wearing the same thing — a white San Francisco 49ers pullover and a red hat. That hat, by the way, along with the black variant he briefly wore last season, has become very difficult for fans to get a hold of.

As Shanahan prepares his team for the biggest 49ers game in six years, and the biggest in the short history of Levi's Stadium, the coach sat down with Chris Berman in a stadium suite and explained why his game-day wardrobe hasn't altered much this season.

"I would like to change my outfit up," Shanahan told Berman. "My wife will not let me. I wore a red hat earlier in the year, and now she's so superstitious that if I take that off, I may lose. It will only be because of that, according to her. So I'm usually going with my red hat and my white shirt."

Berman also asked the coach about his sense of style, including his Yeezys, something his players have commented on multiple times this season.

"I try not to look like I'm that old guy trying to look cool," Shanahan responded. "There's a very fine line in that. I try to wear what I wear outside of here, and I think the players are used to it, and they started making some better things on game days with the hats and things like that, so at least you can take it to game day instead of wearing those old dockers, and all the stuff they used to make us wear."

Shanahan said that if he ever headed on the field wearing a suit and tie — or probably anything other than his standard wardrobe — his players would likely ridicule him mercilessly because they know that's not who their coach is.

The San Francisco 49ers self-scouted themselves during the bye week. What are the areas they saw that require improvement to snap their three-game losing streak? "There isn't one specific [area]," Shanahan told Greg Papa during a segment for NBC Sports Bay Area. "We need to get better all over because it hasn't just been, 'Hey, we're doing this bad. We're doing this good.' We've been up and down at everything, and if you even look at the numbers, we're kind of middle of the pack everywhere. And that's why the majority of this league is sitting at 2-3, 3-2, right there. And where are you going to go from there? "My biggest thing on what we need to do to get better is, I think you've heard our players say it a lot, but I keep talking to them about, 'Which team is

Kyle Shanahan admits he expects and deserves scrutiny for 49ers' four-game losing streak

The San Francisco 49ers' 2021 campaign is spiraling out of control. As a result, there is a lot of blame to spread around. While quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo is receiving his fair share of it, so is head coach Kyle Shanahan. As the leader of the football team, he is responsible for preparing his players for game days, and the players have looked anything but prepared during this four-game losing streak. After the game, Shanahan did his best to hide his frustration resulting from his squad's latest defeat, a 30-18 loss to the Indianapolis Colts. There will be a lot to assess tomorrow morning. The coach was asked if he is deserving of the scrutiny that is being piled on

Why Rich Eisen says the 49ers would be 'crazy' to put Kyle Shanahan on the hot seat

If you spend a lot of time on social media, you probably noticed a very vocal segment of The Faithful calling for the San Francisco 49ers to fire head coach Kyle Shanahan. If not that, they believe Shanahan should at least be on the hot seat, and the outcome of this season to determine his fate. Shanahan was given a pass after last season's six-win campaign. His team was coming off a Super Bowl appearance, after all, and had just endured one of the most injury-plagued seasons in recent NFL history. Shanahan is also 31-38 as a head coach, including 2019's 13-3 season. If you throw that out the window, the coach has never guided a team to more than six wins. He could do so this season. However, after winning their first two games, the 49ers have stumbled through
