Are things already falling apart in San Francisco?
With all things considered, the San Francisco 49ers came away with a rather successful 2019 NFL Draft, but there seems to be some discord in the front office.
Head coach Kyle Shanahan reportedly doesn’t have that much confidence in the decision-making that GM John Lynch has shown during his time there.
“Word out of San Francisco points to friction and a potential breakup of head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch.
According to sources in the team’s scouting and coaching staff, the two aren’t in lock step as far as the vision of the offseason and the future of the franchise. The coach, Shanahan, wants to scheme and develop players while not being bothered with the player evaluation process, but more and more he finds himself involved while not trusting the decision-making of Lynch—a former media analyst after his Hall of Fame playing days but not someone with a scouting background.”
Both Lynch and Shanahan signed a 6-year deal with the 49ers before the 2017 season, but have so far brought a combined 10-22 record in the first two years.
After drafting Nick Bosa with the 2nd-overall draft pick, the 2019 season is going to be a pivotal one for the both of them.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
