CBS Sports ranks four NFL head coaches ahead of 49ers' Kyle Shanahan

Many consider San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan to be one of the most innovative young minds in football. After a massive rebuild that started in 2017, his squad reached the Super Bowl last season and was a play or two away from potentially winning a championship. The 49ers could be a formidable obstacle to opposing teams for years to come. Or everything could collapse. You never know in the NFL.

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
