Jed York gives votes of confidence to 49ers’ Kyle Shananan and John Lynch
The San Francisco 49ers have fallen on hard times in recent years, as they have not made the playoffs since the 2013-14 campaign and are coming off of a 2018 season in which they won just four games.
However, 49ers owner Jed York is still confident in head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch and has given both men a vote of confidence heading into next season:
“We’re probably not going to get it all right in the first year, first two years, but this is something we’re going to try to build, and I believe we have a very good foundation. I think the future is bright for us,” York said, according to Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area.
Both Shanahan and Lynch have only been aboard for two seasons, so it’s not like the duo has a longstanding run of ineptitude.
As a result, York says he is being patient with his two employees and feels that they are the right men for their respective jobs moving forward:
“I have a lot of patience with these guys,” York said. “I think there are reasons we’ve had the records we’ve had the last two years, and I feel very, very good about the team those guys are putting together.”
This should not come as much of a surprise.
After all, the Niners were essentially a dumpster fire when Shanahan and Lynch joined the ranks in 2017, as San Francisco was coming off of a 201 season in which it won a mere two games.
With a good young quarterback in Jimmy Garoppolo and some impressive young pieces around him, better days should be coming for the 49ers.
