49ers hiring Bob Bicknell as WR coach and Ryan Day

Jan 17, 2016 at 7:33 AM--


Alex Marvez of FOX Sports reported this morning that, according to a source, the San Francisco 49ers are hiring Philadelphia Eagles WR coach Bob Bicknell. He will serve the same position on Chip Kelly's staff.


Bicknell is the second Eagles assistant to follow Kelly to San Francisco. On Saturday, it was reported that QB coach Ryan Day was expected to join him as well. He would be serving the same position or be Kelly's offensive coordinator.


Last year, the 49ers were interested in Bicknell as offensive coordinator under Jim Tomsula's staff. He decided to remain with the Eagles. Bicknell has been with the Eagles since 2013. Before that, he was the WR coach for the Buffalo Bills.

Trent Williams athletic enough to play 3-technique, says 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan

There is no doubt that Trent Williams is among the most athletic offensive linemen in the NFL. The tackle joined the San Francisco 49ers via a trade in April and will replace another athletic offensive lineman in recently retired Joe Staley. It's not often that a team can lose a player like Staley and gain one like Williams. The 49ers offensive line shouldn't miss a beat during the transition, and some might argue that it may have improved with the switch. Head coach Kyle Shanahan was in Washington when the team drafted Williams and is excited to bring him to the Bay Area. Shanahan knows a good NFL tackle when he sees one. "I've been so fortunate, just in the places I've been, to be with some of the best tackles in the league," Shanahan told Greg

The San Francisco 49ers have a not-so-simple goal for the 2020 season: Get back to the Super Bowl and emerge as champions. I label it as "not-so-simple" because doing so will be a very difficult task, and head coach Kyle Shanahan knows that. But it's Super Bowl or bust for the 49ers, as was the case in the team's heyday. Shanahan made a rather innocent comment this week during the conversation with Greg Papa after being asked to describe the state of the franchise. "I know we were good enough to win that Super Bowl, and we didn't," Shanahan responded. "And that's something we've got to live with. And that's why the state of the franchise, right
