Kyle Shanahan is surely still reeling from the Falcons’ crushing Super Bowl 51 defeat but it’s time for him to turn his attention to the reclamation project that is the San Francisco 49ers.
The 49ers have officially named Shanahan their new head coach. Here’s a statement from the team’s website.
“This is a very exciting day for the San Francisco 49ers and our fans,” said 49ers CEO Jed York. “Throughout this process, we learned many things about Kyle that convinced us he is the perfect coach to lead this team. Over the years, he has proven to be one of the brightest minds in the game of football and his recent success speaks for itself. Kyle’s leadership has brought the best out of his players at every phase of his career and we look forward to watching him build a talented staff to accomplish the same with our players.”
It’ll be interesting to see if the Niners can get Shanahan the pieces he needs to replicate the success he had in Atlanta.
