NFL: Los Angeles Rams at New England Patriots Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports

The search for the next San Francisco 49ers GM and head coach has started. All the names you would expect to hear for head coach are being mentioned. Josh McDaniels, Kyle Shanahan, Vance Joseph, and Anthony Lynn are expected to be interviewed shortly. It’s interesting that head coaches are being interviewed before a GM has been hired. The allure of the 49ers GM job is the ability to choose the head coach. If the 49ers hire the coach first, the GM position could be potentially harder to fill.

Josh McDaniels and Kyle Shanahan are the hot names for head coach and for very good reasons. Josh runs New England’s offense and Tom Brady has mentioned that he owes a lot of his success to Josh’s coaching. Kyle Shanahan helped Matt Ryan have a career and possibly MVP season while making the Falcons the top scoring offense in the NFL. His connection to the 49ers makes him that more attractive for the position.

The 49ers will be interviewing ESPN’s Louis Riddick, Vikings’ George Paton, and Indy’s Jimmy Raye III for their GM position. It will be very important that Jed York get the GM pick right because the roster is bare of talent and the next GM will be crucial to lure a good head coach to the Bay Area. The GM will have to start from the bottom and rebuild a roster that can compete in the next few years. They have a golden opportunity to start with the #2 pick in the draft waiting for whoever becomes the GM.
