It looks like Kyle Shanahan will remain at his job in San Francisco until at least 2025.
The reigning NFC champs and the 40-year-old head coach agreed to extend his tenure by signing a new, six-year deal, the team announced yesterday.
The deal supersedes the last three years of Shanahan’s previous six-year contract, which he signed when became head coach in 2017. Although the full numbers have not been announced, he is now expected to be among the five highest-paid head coaches in the NFL.
Prior to becoming the shot caller in San Francisco, he served as offensive coordinator for the Houston Texans, Washington Redskins, Cleveland Browns and Atlanta Falcons.
In 2019, the 49ers had an offense that ranked second with 29.9 points per game and a defense that only gave up 19.4 points per contest under Shanahan’s guidance.
According to William Hill Sports Book, the 49ers are the favorites to come out of the NFC and own the third-best odds (+700) to win Super Bowl LV.
