49ers Hire John Lynch As General Manager


With the Super Bowl between the New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons less than a week ago, the football world was caught off guard by the San Francisco 49ers latest hire.

The storied franchise hired Hall of Fame finalist John Lynch as their new general manager. Typically, you’d expect someone of this magnitude to have previous experience, which is not the case here.

Lynch has been an analyst for Fox since 2008, so it’ll be interesting to hear what he has to say.
