It won't be long before Ryans joins the head coaching ranks as well. "DeMeco's been tremendous. He really has," Lynch told KNBR's Markus Boucher and Marcus Thompson this morning. "As good of a football coach as Robert Saleh was. You thought it was going to be really tough to replace him. We had a ton of confidence in DeMeco, but you just don't know
