49ers’ Kyle Shanahan participating in NFL’s ‘My Cause My Cleats’ campaign

Dec 2, 2021 at 6:11 PM--


San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan will be participating for the first time in the NFL's "My Cause My Cleats" campaign this weekend. He will be wearing the shoes below in support of the Institute for Myeloma and Bone Cancer Research.


49ers linebackers coach Johnny Holland announced in August that he has been involved in a lengthy battle with cancer and was taking some time away from football.

"In September of 2019, I was diagnosed with multiple myeloma and have gone through several rounds of remission and relapse," Holland said via a statement issued by the 49ers. "Unfortunately, the cancer has returned and, beginning on September 6th, I will take some time away from the team to receive treatment. In sharing the details of my diagnosis, my desire is that I can be an advocate and beacon of hope for those who are battling cancer to help remind them that we're all in this together."

Holland joined Shanahan's staff in February of 2017, shortly after the 49ers hired Shanahan to be the team's head coach.

Matt Barrows of The Athletic notes that Holland has been on hand for this week's practices. The 49ers are preparing to travel to Lumen Field to play the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.

Kyle Shanahan sees head coach-like qualities in DeMeco Ryans but hopes 49ers hold onto the DC

DeMeco Ryans just finished his first regular season as an NFL defensive coordinator. His players and colleagues know that an NFL team will come calling one day, looking to possibly make Ryans its head coach. The San Francisco 49ers defense ranks No. 3 in total yards allowed (5,270), is tied for No. 3 in yards allowed per play (5.1), is No. 6 in passing yards allowed (3,510), and No. 7 in rushing yards allowed (1,760). Not bad for the rookie coordinator who replaced Robert Saleh. All last offseason, head coach Kyle Shanahan expressed confidence in Ryans—almost seeming overconfident in his abilities to lead the defense. It would appear that trust paid off. Shanahan knows, eventually, he will receive that call from an NFL team. He knows another organization



49ers-Cowboys: Jimmy Garoppolo limited, Trent Williams won't practice, says Kyle Shanahan

Before Wednesday's practice, San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters. The team is preparing to face the NFC East champion Dallas Cowboys this weekend in the opening round of the playoffs. Shanahan says quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, who is still dealing with a right thumb injury, will be limited in practice. However, his starting left tackle, Trent Williams (elbow), will not practice. The coach is still hoping that Williams can play on Sunday against the Cowboys. "Trent is better today than he was on Sunday," Shanahan said. The 49ers are opening the practice window for running back Trenton Cannon, who suffered a concussion on December 5 and was placed on injured reserve on December 11. Others who will not practice



49ers sticking with Jimmy Garoppolo wasn't a tough decision, says Kyle Shanahan

By David Bonilla

There was a lot of pressure for the San Francisco 49ers to play rookie Trey Lance more. Not just at the start of the season but throughout the entire 2021 campaign. That included the week leading to the regular-season finale against the Los Angeles Rams, especially with starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo dealing with a pretty concerning right thumb injury. Garoppolo did play through the pain of his torn ligament and chipped bone in that thumb. He put in a gutsy performance, leading the 49ers to a playoff-clinching 27-24 overtime victory over the Rams. Head coach Kyle Shanahan did what he could to block out the outside noise, never giving in to the pressure to start Lance. It ended up being the right call, but the coach understands why everyone wanted to see the



More than coach and player: 49ers' Kyle Shanahan considers Deebo Samuel a friend

By Rohan Chakravarthi

When thinking about Kyle Shanahan and Deebo Samuel, you normally refer to the creative methods that Kyle Shanahan utilizes his star receiver and the playmaking ability of Samuel to execute those play calls. However, there's much more to the relationship between the two than just the electrifying performances on Sundays, which Kyle Shanahan alluded to in his daily presser Wednesday. Deebo Samuel has always been an animated and vibrant individual, most notably through his energy on the field and leading up to games on Sundays, so it's no surprise that the head coach and receiver are able to easily connect on a daily basis. "[We talk about anything]," Shanahan stated. "Deebo's a real easy guy to talk to. He's not doing much on special teams during
