49ers veterans finding defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans to be a 'player's coach'

DeMeco Ryans seems to be fitting in perfectly so far as the 49ers' new defensive coordinator, although that should come as no surprise given his previous NFL experience. Ryans, 36, played ten seasons in the league as a linebacker for the Houston Texans (2006-2011) and Philadelphia Eagles (2012-2015) after being selected by the Texans at pick 33 in Round 2 of the 2006 NFL Draft. After a career that saw him total 814 tackles, 13.5 sacks, and two Pro Bowl selections, Ryans began his coaching career as a quality control coach with the 49ers in 2017 and has since gone through a quick rise to defensive coordinator after serving as the inside linebackers coach the past three seasons. The fact that Ryans has a wealth of NFL experience and isn't far removed from his playing days means

The San Francisco 49ers don't practice this weekend. That frees up head coach Kyle Shanahan to do something different. Very different. According to Ted Ward of Bay Area News Group, Shanahan has been named the Grand Marshal of Sunday's Toyota/Save Mart 350 NASCAR Cup Series race at Sonoma Raceway and will be the one to announce the start of the race. "Shanahan joins other notable NFL personalities with quarterbacks Tua Tagovailoa (Homestead-Miami Speedway) and Derek Carr (Las Vegas Motor Speedway) having been NASCAR grand marshals this season," wrote Ward. You might not describe Shanahan as a NASCAR die-hard. This



49ers coach Kyle Shanahan fires up NASCAR fans at Toyota/Save Mart 350

Maybe the San Francisco 49ers should look into having head coach Kyle Shanahan fire up the crowds at Levi's Stadium before each home game this season because he did a good job serving as the Grand Marshal of today's Toyota/Save Mart 350 NASCAR Cup Series race. He was tasked with the tradition of starting the race by telling the drivers to start their engines. "I'm not going to lie. I am nervous for it," Shanahan told the television announcing team before the race. "I didn't totally know what I was getting into until I saw video of it a little bit ago." Shanahan was told that he needs to be aggressive. "Alright, I'm going to come strong," he responded. He certainly did that. "Hello, Faithful," Shanahan told the crowd. "Hey,



49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan expects DeMeco Ryans to gamble more than Robert Saleh

When the 49ers line up on defense this season under new coordinator DeMeco Ryans, they might be taking more risks than they did over the past four seasons under the guidance of previous coordinator Robert Saleh. Saleh earned a reputation as one of the league's top defensive coordinators during his time with the 49ers, which he turned into his new opportunity as head coach of the New York Jets. But according to 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan, Saleh liked to play it safe as a coordinator, which is something that could change this season now that Ryans is in charge. "I think you'll see DeMeco's personality come out a little bit more," Shanahan told Tim Kawakami of The Athletic
