Shanahan quotes:

"It is truly an honor to be named head coach of the San Francisco 49ers, one of the marquee franchises in all of sports," said 49ers Head Coach Kyle Shanahan. "I must thank Jed and the York family for entrusting me with this great privilege and tremendous opportunity. I would also like to express my gratitude to Arthur Blank, Dan Quinn and the Atlanta Falcons organization for their support and the experience of a lifetime.

"As a young man, I had the unique benefit of being exposed to the storied history of the San Francisco 49ers firsthand. From that exposure, I developed great respect for those who created a world-class, championship standard. As this team begins the task of reestablishing that standard, I could not ask for a better partner than John Lynch. He is a man who certainly has personal knowledge of what championship organizations look like. John and I look forward to establishing a strong culture that will serve as our foundation for constructing this team.

"I am very excited to dedicate myself to the process that lies ahead. The first step in that process is identifying talented individuals who love the game of football as much as John and I do – coaches, players and staff. We are looking for individuals who work hard and are dedicated to doing things the right way, always in the best interest of the team. Most importantly, we want to give our fans a team they can be proud of on and off the field."
Welcome to Shan Francisco, coach!

That sets a welcome tone.

And a tall order.

a coach that is afraid of losing his job won't do that. ok, let's say, the probability for doing that is lower than under normal circumstances.

He's got a 6 year contract that matches his GM's contract. Both know its a rebuild. I doubt he's going to be worried about job security until at least year 3 and that's only if things aren't going in the right direction. And, since Shanahan and Lynch are joined at the hip with 6 year deals, if the time arises where job security becomes an issue, they're probably both going to be worried about it, so you aren't really gaining anything by Lynch having control of the 53. You're also, most likely, wringing your hands over the bottom of the roster.
