Is Paraag Marathe a help or a hindrance in the 49ers search for a new General Manager and Head Coach? It has been reported that he is helping Jed but does Jed really need his help and what motives might Marathe have? There are already questions about Caserio stepping on Marathe’s toes and I have been wondering why Omar Khan, who is currently the Vice President of Football and Business Administration for the Pittsburgh Steelers and has stated he would really like to be a General Manager in the NFL, has not been contacted? I don’t think there is any question that he is qualified.
There have been many rumors in the past about how much control the Yorks have given Marathe. I would be completely disappointed if Marathe was able to use his influence over Jed and his parents in order to undermine them and keep them from selecting the best possible candidate just because Marathe felt personally threatened by that General Manager candidate becoming an integral part of the 49ers organization.
