Rapoport: New Orleans or San Francisco for Sean Payton

Jan 6, 2016 at 6:55 AM--


Early Tuesday morning, there was a report that the Indianapolis Colts had reached out to Sean Payton's camp about their head coach job prior to the re-signing of Chuck Pagano to a contract extension. Payton, who is still under contract with the New Orleans Saints, has been allowed to have discussions with other teams. However, the Colts' prior interest was quickly debunked.

As for a likely landing spot for Payton, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport seems to believe that the landing spot for him will either be New Orleans or San Francisco.


Payton has been the head coach of the Saints since 2006 and won Super Bowl XLIV. He has a 93-61 record as a head coach, including the postseason.


The 49ers have also been in discussions with former Denver Broncos and Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan, scheduled an interview with Buffalo Bills assistant head coach and running backs coach Anthony Lynn, and requested to interview Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Hue Jackson.

The 49ers are making it easily known that they are after an offensive minded coach.

Rams' Sean McVay believes 49ers are confident in their draft strategy

The San Francisco 49ers' move up nine spots from the No. 12 overall pick last month sent shockwaves across the NFL. News of the blockbuster move broke during Zach Wilson's pro day, taking a little away from the event as everyone tried to wrap their heads around the impact — not just on the draft but on the NFC West and NFL landscape for years to come. The move up to the No. 3 spot leaves San Francisco without a first-round pick in each of the next two years. Someone who knows a thing or two about building a roster without first-round picks is the coach of the NFC West rival Los Angeles Rams — Sean McVay. McVay and 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan are close friends, but you can bet the Rams coach is being kept in the dark about the Bay Area team's



Rapoport: Kyle Shanahan says 49ers are 'definitely considering' Mac Jones but isn't tipping hand

First off, let's make it clear that it would be irresponsible for the San Francisco 49ers to deny anything when it comes to guesswork surrounding their 2021 NFL Draft intentions. Yes, they own the No. 3 overall pick, but that doesn't mean they want everyone to know what they plan to do. Everyone expects quarterbacks Trevor Lawrence and Zach Wilson to go one and two in the draft ... but it's the NFL Draft. Nothing is a certainty. A national narrative has been created that indicates the favorite to land with San Francisco is former Alabama quarterback Mac Jones. Maybe that will be the case. Maybe not. The team could also select Justin Fields of Ohio State or Trey Lance of North Dakota State. Head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch are expected to

Mike McDaniel discusses his new role as 49ers offensive coordinator

Mike McDaniel started working with Kyle Shanahan with the Houston Texans. He is one of the San Francisco 49ers head coach's most trusted assistants, serving as the team's run-game coordinator during his first four seasons in Santa Clara. In January, McDaniel was promoted to offensive coordinator, becoming the first coach under Shanahan to hold that title. "Immediately, you're trying to prove your worth and prove the people right that have really invested in you and invested in your career, and given you opportunities, and et cetera, et cetera," McDaniel recently told 49ers.com reporter Keiana Martin. "It instills a level of hunger on top of the hunger that you already had." After McDaniel
