Kyle Shanahan Expected To Take Niners Job


As the Atlanta Falcons prepare to play their final game in the Georgia Dome against the red-hot Aaron Rodgers and Green Bay Packers, offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan has a head coaching job waiting on him whenever Atlanta’s season comes to an end.

The prideful San Francisco 49ers franchise is looking to compete again and considering how woeful their offense is, the belief is that Shanahan could turn things around. After all, Atlanta ranked first in points per game at 33.8.

Barring a massive change of heart, Shanahan is expected to become the Niners new head coach. However, the two parties can’t officially agree to a deal until the Falcons season concludes.
