  49ers | Kyle Shanahan will meet with 49ers    Tue Jan 17, 06:13 PM

Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan has a second interview planned with the San Francisco 49ers following the NFC Championship game, according to a source.

Footballguys view: It's just a formality. We feel pretty confident that Shanahan is going to be the next head coach of the 49ers. The team has a long way to go, but Shanahan is going to bring a high-powered offense to the table. We'll see how he handles himself as a head coach after almost a decade as an offensive coordinator with four different teams in the NFL.

  49ers | 49ers 'honing in on' hiring Kyle Shanahan    Tue Jan 17, 12:58 AM

The San Francisco 49ers are -- and have been -- 'honing in on hiring' Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan as their next head coach, according to sources.

Footballguys view: With Patriots OC Josh McDaniels taking his name out of the running, Shanahan clearly becomes the guy for the 49ers. He's turned Matt Ryan into an MVP candidate and the Falcons offense is one of the most high-powered units in the league. We're excited about what he could do in San Francisco, but there's a lot of work to be done before the 49ers are playoff contenders again.

  49ers | Vance Joseph to interview for 49ers    Tue Jan 10, 10:39 AM

Miami Dolphins defensive coordinator Vance Joseph will interview for the San Francisco 49ers' head coaching vacancy Thursday, Jan. 12.

Footballguys view: That's if the Broncos don't hire him on Tuesday or Wednesday. Seen as the top candidate in Denver, Joseph could land the best job opening in the NFL. The Broncos still have a great core on defense and arguably the league's best secondary. Joseph could then hire someone like Mike McCoy to run the offense and get more production out of that side of the ball. The 49ers could use a guy like Joseph as well, but they may not get the chance if Denver strikes quickly.

  49ers | Three to interview with 49ers    Thu Jan 5, 11:02 AM

Seattle Seahawks assistant head coach/offensive line coach Tom Cable and co-directors of player personnel Trent Kirchner and Scott Fitterer will interview for the San Francisco 49ers' head coach and general manager positions next week.

Footballguys view: Cable had one shaky tenure as a head coach, but he's done good work as the Seahawks' offensive line coach, making lemonade out of lemons. The GM piece might be as important, if not more vital, as the way the roster looks now, any coach will have some issues.

Washington Redskins offensive coordinator Sean McVay will interview with the San Francisco 49ers for their vacant head coaching position Monday, Jan. 9, according to a source.

Footballguys view: McVay has been the offensive coordinator for Washington since 2014 after getting promoted from their tight ends coach. Washington's offense ranked 3rd in the NFL in total yards per game (404.3) in 2016. Turning 31 years old later this month, McVay is getting interest from at least the Rams and the 49ers so far.

  49ers | San Francisco to talk with Kyle Shanahan    Mon Jan 2, 07:12 PM

Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan will interview for the San Francisco 49ers head coaching position Friday, Jan. 6, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Any of the six teams looking for a head coach should be talking to Shanahan. His dad, Mike Shanahan, worked with the 49ers from 1992-1994 where he won a Super Bowl as their offensive coordinator. Kyle Shanahan is the hottest name in coaching along with Patriots OC Josh McDaniels. If the 49ers hired Kyle, there's a chance a role in the front office could be there for Mike. The Shanahans don't have to be a package deal, but an offer could be extended to both.

  49ers | SF seeks permission to interview two    Mon Jan 2, 08:27 AM

New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels and director of player personnel Nick Caserio are being sought after for interviews by the San Francisco 49ers for the head coach and general manager openings.

Footballguys view: The 49ers are headed in a new direction....again. McDaniels is going to be one of the hottest names for teams in search of a new head coach. He may end up in California, but it could be with the Rams instead of the 49ers. McDaniels will have his pick.

San Francisco 49ers RB Shaun Draughn is in line to get the start in Week 17 against the Seattle Seahawks with Carlos Hyde ruled out due to a left MCL sprain.

Footballguys view: It's almost all a crapshoot at running back this week. We're not expecting a robust day from the 49ers on Sunday, and that means Draughn may not do much if things go the way we expect.

  49ers | Carlos Hyde placed on IR    Tue Dec 27, 05:50 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Dec. 27.

Footballguys view: Just 12 yards short of his first 1,000-yard season in 2016, Hyde ran with plenty of heart this year. Things didn't go smooth for the 49ers offense, but Hyde put a lot of good tape out there in 2016. He's entering the final year of his rookie contract in 2017 and could certainly benefit from staying healthy and continuing to produce at an improved level next year.

  49ers | Carlos Hyde won't need surgery    Mon Dec 26, 04:30 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde (knee) will not need surgery on his torn medial collateral ligament.

Footballguys view: Hyde has been banged up quite a bit during his pro career. Entering a contract season in 2017, he'll need to prove that he can stay healthy and produce. With Hyde done for the year, Shaun Draughn should be the top back in a RBBC with DuJuan Harris in the season finale against the Seahawks.

Footballguys view: Hyde has transcended the abysmal product the 49ers have put on the field this year. With even some incremental improvement in the offense, Hyde could be an RB1 next year.
