49ers to offer head-coaching job to Kyle Shanahan

The 49ers will have a second interview with Falcons offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan for the head-coaching position.

If he is offered the job, Shanahan would fill the empty position left by Chip Kelly, who was sacked by the 49ers after one season.

The first domino to fall, when New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels announced his intention to return to the team, also provided some insight into the direction of the head coaching search.

Fortunately, however, Kyle Shanahan is still out there, and they're reportedly closing in on making him their next head coach.

Who Looks More Presidential - Donald Trump Or His Madame Tussauds Wax Figure?
In New York, Trump's wax figure will join other presidents and notable names in the World Leaders Gallery. A Donald Trump waxwork has been unveiled at Madame Tussauds ahead of his presidential inauguration.

Clearly, the 49ers are hoping that Shanahan can help turn their team around.

"I definitely do. I think I have been", Shanahan said recently.

Packers director of football operations Brian Gutekunst is the favorite to land the GM post to replace Trent Baalke.

One would think that, pending last-minute changes of heart, the 49ers have found themselves a pretty good candidate for the near future.

Is Trump's Pick for Education Secretary an Enemy of Public Schools?
In fact, measures that DeVos has advocated in MI have resulted in some of the lowest-performing charter schools in the country. With these goals in mind, I am especially heartened by President-elect Donald Trump's nominee for secretary of Education.

Regardless of who gets the GM job, it appears his coach will already be selected for him. I love the situation here, the team here.

The second interviews are expected to take place after Sunday, when the Atlanta Falcons and Green Bay Packers play in the NFC Championship Game. "And, I'm going to do everything that I can to get this right". When Cable's intention to return to the Seahawks was announced on Tuesday night, Shanahan became the final candidate available that the 49ers have interviewed.

The 49ers interviewed nine candidates for the general manager position. Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan put together an MVP-caliber season in 2016 and the combination of Shanahan and Ryan has the Falcons one win away from the Super Bowl.
