John Lynch’s 9-Year-Old Daughter Says “49ers Are Horrible,” Cried When He Took GM Job


The San Francisco 49ers made waves last month when they announced they would be hiring Hall of Fame candidate and Fox analyst John Lynch as their new GM of the franchise, mainly because NO ONE saw this coming.

Not only did most people think this was a horrible idea, but someone close to Lynch was actually brought to tears by the news.

While speaking with NFL Network’s Michael Silver on Thursday, John Lynch told the story of his 9-year-old daughter getting upset after his hiring by the team.

“I think the toughest one — I haven’t told this yet to the media — all my kids took it really well,” Lynch said. “They were shocked but they took it really well. My 9-year-old started bawling, and she’s not that girl. She’s the one that was always happy. And she was crying, and I said, ‘What’s wrong Leah? Are you afraid? Is there some nervous anxiety about moving?’ And she said, ‘No daddy,’ and she was sobbing. And I said, ‘What’s wrong?’ And she said, ‘The 49ers are horrible.’ So, I said, ‘Well, I think that’s why they hired your daddy.”

The 49ers have gone 7-25 over the last two seasons.
