49ers’ Paraag Marathe reassigned from position of president

Dec 4, 2015 at 2:02 AM--


Late Thursday night, Tim Kawakami of The Mercury News reported that there was some possible chaos brewing within the San Francisco 49ers' management. Shortly after, it was revealed by Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area that Paraag Marathe, one of Jed York's most trusted associates and his right-hand man, would be reassigned from his position of team president.

Kawakami is reporting that, according to an NFL source, Marathe was being removed from his position as president in part because he is believed to be the source of numerous recent leaks to national media, possibly including those discrediting Colin Kaepernick.

Maiocco states that Marathe will retain his title through Super Bowl 50, which will be played on February 7 at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California. After that, Marathe will take on a larger role with the 49ers' outside ventures, like the Sacramento Republic soccer team.

Marathe will also continue to manage the team's salary cap and negotiate contracts with players and their agents. He has been with the team for 15 seasons and has held the title of president for the past two, taking over for minority owner Gideon Yu. Prior to that, he was the 49ers' chief operating officer, a position now held by Al Guido. As Marathe's duties have shifted over the past year, Guido has gained more responsibilities and is the likely candidate to take over many of his responsibilities.



Cam Inman, also of The Mercury News, and Tim Kawakami stated the following in their report of the situation.

Marathe also developed contentious and distrustful relationships with some players and agents, multiple league sources said.

Marathe has been an avid proponent of statistical analytics throughout his 15 years with the franchise, an area that's been welcomed by some and scorned by others.

49ers head coach Jim Tomsula was reportedly not at the team's facility on Wednesday, possibly due to conflicts of opinions with Marathe. Kyle McLorg of Bay Area Sports Guy stated that the 49ers public relations team was instructed to keep his absence quiet.


If this is true, what does Tomsula winning a battle with the team's president say about his future with the 49ers? Could earlier reports of his job being safe be true?

Since Marathe was named the team president back in January of 2014, the 49ers have gone 11-17, which includes the loss in the NFC Championship game during that first month. They sit at 3-8 this season, at the bottom of the NFC West, after parting ways with head coach Jim Harbaugh and most of his staff.

This year, Marathe was named to the Sports Business Journal's Forty Under 40 list.

Creating the ideal 2022 San Francisco 49ers schedule

By Wayne Breezie

As I searched the world wide web for exciting things to bring to the world, I couldn't help but draw inspiration from the great Matt Barrows of The Athletic. In a recent mailbag article, a fan presented the task of creating the ideal San Francisco 49ers schedule based on what we already know for home/away opponents. Here is my dream schedule for the 2022 49ers season. Week 1 vs. Cardinals - This would be a home game for the 49ers and must-see television. Trey Lance would get a second chance at the team that handed him his first loss. Kyler Murray vs. Lance is pay-per-view quality. Week 2 at Panthers - Now that Lance got his feet wet, he should have no problems commanding his troops against the Carolina Panthers. I

Hall of Fame wide receiver Terrell Owens has some insight on the situation between the San Francisco 49ers and their current wide receiver star, Deebo Samuel. Owens recently told NBC LX that he spoke with Samuel but wasn't willing to disclose the details of that conversation. Owens did share the following, though, courtesy of NBC Sports Bay Area. "I've talked to him personally. I know what's going on," Owens said before his Fan Controlled Football game over the weekend. "I know what transpired. Until he's ready to say what happened with that situation, I just keep that between us. But it's



49ers' 2022 schedule among the toughest in strength-of-schedule rankings

The NFL will announce the entire 2022 slate of matchups on Thursday night. That's when we'll learn the dates and times for all 272 regular-season games. However, we've known the opponents for a while now. If the San Francisco 49ers are to return to the playoffs for the third time in four years, it won't be an easy road. San Francisco's upcoming opponents went 154-135 in 2021. The team's schedule will include seven matchups against opponents coming off a playoff appearance (Rams twice, Cardinals twice, Chiefs, Buccaneers, Raiders). Those opponents had a total winning percentage of .533 in 2021, which is good enough to tie with the Kansas City Chiefs as the fifth-toughest schedule



Richard Sherman: I think Jimmy Garoppolo will be with the 49ers during training camp

We know Jimmy Garoppolo isn't going anywhere until he fully recovers from his offseason shoulder surgery. Most have accepted that. The San Francisco 49ers aren't releasing him. By not trading him by the end of the draft, the 49ers showed they are willing to wait out the situation and see if a trade partner emerges after late June or early July, when the team expects the quarterback to start throwing again. Nick Wagoner of ESPN recently stated that once Garoppolo recovers, the 49ers will again get on the phones and try to generate interest in the 30-year-old quarterback. Of course, that's not
