Ian Rapoport and Mike Garafolo are reporting that 49ers HC Kyle Shanahan and GM John Lynch are in line for new deals at some point this offseason.
Assuming everything works out, both Shanahan and Lynch should be able to secure lucrative extensions before the start of the 2020 season in Septemeber, according to the report.
49ers executive VP of football operations Paraag Marathe could also get an extension this offseason.
There’s no question that both are deserving of new contracts with what they’ve been able to do with the 49ers since arriving in San Francisco.
49ers owner Jed York has stressed the importance of culture and it would not be surprising to see him step up to get new deals in place for key figures of the organization in the coming months.
Shanahan, 40, began his NFL coaching career with the Buccaneers as an offensive quality control coordinator back in 2004. He later joined the Texans in 2006 and worked his way up to offensive coordinator before joining his father’s coaching staff with the Redskins in 2010.
After one season with the Browns, Shanahan departed and accepted the offensive coordinator position with the Falcons. Th4 49ers hired him as their head coach for the 2017 season.
Shanahan and Lynch have led the team to a record of 23-25 (47.9) to go along with two playoff wins over the course of three seasons.
We’ll have more regarding the 49ers as the news is available.
