Kyle Shanahan Believes In John Lynch


With the Super Bowl on the horizon, I’m not quite sure how Kyle Shanahan is able to maintain his focus considering he’s expected to be the new head coach of the San Francisco 49ers right after the biggest game of his life.

A couple days ago, the 49ers hired John Lynch as their new general manager. Although he has zero front office experience, Shanahan remains confident in his ability.

“I truly believe that whenever you have a smart guy who is very talented and has extremely high character and has no problem working extremely hard … if given the time, it’s a matter of time before they figure it out,” Shanahan said. “John is as impressive a human being as there is and has succeeded in everything he’s done.”

When Shanahan officially becomes the coach, the first thing him and Lynch must figure out is who will be their quarterback moving forward.
