Kyle Shanahan

Head Coach

Experience: 17 years


Kyle Shanahan was named the 20th head coach of the San Francisco 49ers on February 6, 2017. Shanahan signed a multi-year contract extension with the 49ers on June 15, 2020.

In 2019, he was named Coach of the Year by Sporting News and NFC Coach of the Year by the Committee of 101 after leading the 49ers to a 13-3 regular season record, the NFC West Division Title and an appearance in Super Bowl LIV. San Francisco's nine-win improvement from 2018 to 2019 was the largest win improvement from one season to the next in franchise history. The 49ers became one of three teams since the NFL switched to a 12-team playoff format in 1990 to finish 4-12 or worse one season followed by earning the number one seed in its conference the next season (1999 St. Louis Rams & 2016 Dallas Cowboys).
