Kyle Shanahan’s look at Mike Pettine’s play suggestion is fantastic

New, comments

Don’t tell Kyle Shanahan to run the ball when he does not want to.

The San Francisco 49ers are continuing their head coach search, with three remaining candidates all in the playoffs. The team has interviewed Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan and New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, and has an interview this Sunday with Seattle Seahawks offensive line coach Tom Cable.

As we continue to wait, this funny video made its way onto Twitter Thursday evening. Prior to joining the Falcons last season, Shanahan was Mike Pettine’s offensive coordinator in Cleveland. Shanahan departed after one season amidst reports he had concerns about front office meddling in the play-calling.

This video does not show front office meddling, but his reaction when Pettine suggests they run the ball is pretty great.
