49ers OC Mike McDaniel focused on beating the Cowboys, not head coaching jobs

The Miami Dolphins requested to interview San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator Mike McDaniel for their head coaching vacancy. Obviously, that's a big opportunity for the 38-year-old coach in his first season as an offensive coordinator. However, the valuable knowledge he has learned from head coach Kyle Shanahan could soon make him a hot commodity. McDaniel doesn't have time to think about any of that right now, though. Instead, he's focused on Sunday's road playoff game against the Dallas Cowboys. After Thursday's practice, the coordinator was asked about juggling preparing for the game and thinking about the head coaching opportunity, and his response should set 49ers fans' minds at ease. "Yeah, it has [come to my attention], but as far as juggling, there

Not everyone is a believer in Jimmy Garoppolo's arm strength and his ability to throw the deep ball, but head coach Kyle Shanahan says Garoppolo stacks up in those areas favorably to any quarterback he's coached. The topic came up during an interview with Shanahan this week with 49ers play-by-play radio announcer Greg Papa when Papa brought up rookie Trey Lance's strength in throwing deep, which was on display in his start against the Houston Texans last Sunday. Shanahan said Lance's deep ball ability "helps a ton" on offense but also said Garoppolo doesn't deserve some of the criticism he's been give in that area. "I do think that's something Jimmy unfairly gets criticized for because Jimmy can throw the ball as far as anyone I've had," Shanahan said. "Some



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
