Golden Nuggets: Culture Change In The Works

NFL: San Francisco 49ers-Press Conference Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

The 49ers head into the offseason the same way for the 3rd straight year. The team will need a new head coach after dismissing their 3rd consecutive one. Chip Kelly joins Jim Tomsula as a one and done head coach. This time the 49ers will also be looking for a general manager after Trent Baalke was dismissed with Chip. Trent has been with the team since 2005 and has been the GM since 2010. But the roster was terrible and after another losing season, Jed York decided to finally let go of Trent.

Jed York addressed the media on Monday regarding the firings of Trent and Chip. He apologized to the fans for the 2-14 season. The biggest takeaway from the presser was that Jed is looking for a GM and head coach that will work together. He wants a complete culture change in the 49ers facility. He is not bringing anyone from the outside to help with the hiring process. He mentioned speaking with well respected football people, but ultimately the decision for hiring the GM and head coach will come from him. That is not what the 49ers fans wanted to hear.

The usual suspects are being named as candidates for the 49ers. New England offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels and the Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan are the top candidates for head coach. They would also like to interview New England’s director of player personnel Nick Caserio as well as Green Bay’s director of football operations Eliot Wolf and director of player personnel Brian Gutekunst for the GM position. Based on Jed’s comments, a package deal of McDaniels and Caserio makes the most sense since they already work with each other.

Hopefully, Jed lucks out and has good hires this time. The 49ers fans do not want another Jed press conference regarding coaching changes following next season. Unfortunately, his track record is not good in these situations.
