49ers’ Kyle Shanahan, coaching staff will not attend the NFL Scouting Combine

Feb 28, 2022 at 4:35 PM--

When the NFL released the list of coaches scheduled to speak to the media at the NFL Scouting Combine this week, San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan's name was among those that were noticeably absent. Others not on the list were Bill Belichick, Sean McVay, Mike Tomlin, Matt Rhule, and John Harbaugh.

NBC Sports Bay Area reports that Shanahan and his staff won't even be in Indianapolis for the NFL Scouting Combine.

"The staff, including the new hires, will stay back in Santa Clara and evaluate the film of the prospects," wrote Matt Maiocco via Twitter. "SF's personnel department and scouts are in Indianapolis."

Shanahan had attended the NFL Scouting Combine each year since becoming the 49ers' head coach in 2017. However, his staff has seen significant turnover this offseason.

Shanahan lost two coordinators, Mike McDaniel (Dolphins head coach) and Richard Hightower (Bears special teams coordinator), along with his wide receivers coach Wes Welker (Dolphins receivers coach), quarterbacks coach Rich Scangarello (University of Kentucky offensive coordinator), and others.

Among those who will be in Indianapolis is 49ers general manager John Lynch. He is scheduled to speak to the media on Wednesday at 11:15 a.m. PT.

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan is still widely regarded as one of the NFL's top play-callers, which is reflected in Pro Football Focus' 2022 ranking of the best offensive play-callers. How did the analytics site determine its ranking? Contributor Eric Eager used the massive amount of data available to him and adjusted each coach's success based on opponents faced.

Two massive games. Two double-digit 4th quarter leads. Two heart-breaking losses. You can stop right there and fans of the San Francisco 49ers know exactly what you're talking about. Painfully, the franchise that once referred to itself as "Camelot," and became the first NFL team to win five Super Bowls, has experienced some difficult losses. There were three consecutive heartbreaking losses in the Jim Harbaugh days. And now Kyle Shanahan's 49ers have lost two big games, Super Bowl LIV in February 2020, and the NFC Championship Game earlier this year. And we're not even discussing the dark years when the team struggled under the likes of Dennis Erickson, Mike Nolan, Jim Tomsula, and Chip Kelly. Those names make me want to throw up. Whether it's that

Bleacher Report's Kristopher Knox recently listed one offseason regret for each NFL team (h/t Niners Noise). That regret for the Kansas City Chiefs was letting Charvarius Ward depart. In March, the cornerback signed a three-year, $40.5 million deal with the San Francisco 49ers, forcing the Chiefs to use a first-round pick on Trent McDuffie. What about the regret for the 49ers, though? Is it the complicated situation with Jimmy Garoppolo, the veteran quarterback they would love to trade but can't? Is it not directly shooting

The San Francisco 49ers have faced some serious roster turnover with their offensive line, as left guard Laken Tomlinson went to the New York Jets in free agency, while center Alex Mack chose to retire after one season with the organization. In addition, right tackle Mike McGlinchey is coming off a torn quadriceps injury that sidelined him for the second half of the 2021 NFL season, although head coach Kyle Shanahan believes the Notre Dame product should be ready for training camp. Earlier this week, PFF's Mike Renner conducted his offensive line rankings for 2022 with several tiers: Minor or no weaknesses(tier 1), high floor(tier 2), high-end potential(tier 3), at
