Presumptive 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan does not anticipate hiring his father, Super Bowl winning coach Mike Shanahan, in San Francisco.
"We did our deal in Washington and I wouldn’t take that back for the world," Shanahan the Younger said, "but that was pretty much the end of it." Mike has attempted to get back in the league a couple times since being fired by the Redskins in 2013, but it looks like his days on an NFL sideline are finished. Jan 31 - 9:17 AM

Former Raiders, Broncos, and Redskins coach Mike Shanahan indicated earlier this week that he's not interested in returning to coaching.

However, the elder Shanahan did say he would be interested in a front office job, while simultaneously plugging his son, Kyle, as a head-coaching candidate. "I think it would be a lot smarter to take Kyle than it would me," Mike said. "I think I would give an organization maybe a lot more input from top to bottom, the little things that are the difference, and the structure of the organization. I'm not looking for a head coaching job, to be honest with you." The prospective Shanahan duo has been loosely linked to the Rams and 49ers in recent days.

Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reports Mike Shanahan was passed over for the 49ers' head-coaching job because he didn't want Colin Kaepernick.

49ers' Hall of Famers were calling the front office in support of Shanahan, and he appeared to be the favorite deep into the search. Things unraveled when Shanahan reportedly said he wanted the team to move on from Kaepernick and use its first-round pick on a new quarterback. GM Trent Baalke and the higher-ups in the organization believe Kap can be "salvaged," which led to Chip Kelly getting the job instead of Shanahan. Kap is the favorite to start Week 1.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the 49ers interest in Mike Shanahan "has ramped up considerably."

The ex-Redskins and Broncos coach interviewed with San Francisco Tuesday. Shanahan likely was not the 49ers' top option, but they lost out on the Hue Jackson sweepstakes to Cleveland and it appears as if Dirk Koetter will remain in Tampa Bay. GM Trent Baalke is reportedly hesitant to hire anyone who could threaten his power, and it is possible Shanahan is willing to take a backseat in personnel decisions for a final shot on the sidelines. It would be interesting to see how long that lasts.

ESPN's Dianna Marie Russini reports Mike Shanahan is "strongly back in the mix" with the 49ers.

Shanahan has been in talks with the 49ers, but never formally interviewed. After missing on Hue Jackson, Shanahan, Chip Kelly, Tom Coughlin, and Dirk Koetter are the current candidates for San Francisco's head-coach job. 63-year-old Shanahan would be a questionable fit for a rebuilding team without a quarterback in place. In targeting Shanahan, it seems the 49ers are continuing to overvalue the talent of their roster, which has become a recurring theme in recent seasons under tyrannical GM Trent Baalke.

Updating an earlier item, ESPN's Dianna Marie Russini reports Mike Shanahan's interview with the 49ers is "on hold."

The sides are apparently having phone chats, however. Shanahan bombed with the Redskins and will be 64 in August. If he's going to return to coaching, it should probably be with a roster further along than San Francisco's.
Tue, Jan 5, 2016 05:34:00 PM

ESPN's Dianna Marie Russini reports Mike Shanahan will interview for the 49ers' head-coaching vacancy on Wednesday.

The 49ers are digging deep. Of course, Shanahan reportedly interviewed with the Dolphins on Tuesday, so the 49ers aren't the only team going back to the well. Shanahan's four-year tenure in Washington was a steady wearing out of his welcome, but any coach with two Super Bowls on his résumé will always be able to get interviews. It would be an uninspired hire, but Shanny would obviously be an improvement on Jim Tomsula.

FOX Sports' Alex Marvez reports Mike Shanahan has an interview scheduled with the Dolphins on Tuesday.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Shanahan met with the Dolphins in late December, so this would amount to a second interview. Shanahan is also reportedly interested in the 49ers' and Eagles' vacancies. Out of the league since 2013, Shanahan drew some interest during the carousel last offseason, but he did not appear to get very far in the hiring process with any organizations. It looks like the 63-year-old could find more luck this time around. Shanahan went 24-40 with one winning season in a four-year stint with the Redskins in his last coaching stop.
Mon, Jan 4, 2016 08:35:00 AM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Mike Shanahan has expressed interest in both the 49ers' and Eagles' coaching vacancies.

Out of the league since 2013, the 63-year-old coach garnered some interest in the coaching carousel last season, but he ultimately did not get very far with any organizations. He is apparently throwing his hat back in the ring this offseason. A great offensive mind who helped Robert Griffin to his best season as a rookie in 2012 before the pair ultimately had a falling out, Shanahan could be seen as a potential savior for Colin Kaepernick's career in San Francisco. He should at least land a few interviews.
Mon, Jan 4, 2016 07:52:00 AM

CSN Bay Area reports Mike Shanahan is a candidate for the 49ers' offensive-coordinator vacancy.

That's Mike, not Kyle. NBC Washington's Dianna Marie Russini first had the news. It's hard to believe the 62-year-old Shanahan would be able to swallow his pride to be a coordinator, but stranger things have happened. It would be excellent news for Colin Kaepernick and company.
Fri, Jan 16, 2015 01:43:00 PM

ESPN's Ed Werder reports the Bears are not considering ex-Redskins coach Mike Shanahan for their head-coaching vacancy.

Shanahan openly wanted to reunite with Jay Cutler in Chicago, and it made plenty of sense because the two had success together in Denver. After hiring Marc Trestman specifically to cater to Cutler -- and failing -- the Bears don't want to risk making the same mistake twice. The Raiders, 49ers, and Bills are three teams said to be looking into the elder Shanahan.
Wed, Jan 7, 2015 12:39:00 PM

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Bears are expected to interview Mike Shanahan for their head coaching vacancy.

The interview would take place after the Bears hire a GM to replace fired Phil Emery. It's unclear if Shanny will still be on the market at that point, as he's already garnered interest from the Bills, Raiders and 49ers. Shanny is interesting in Chicago as he drafted Jay Cutler 11th overall with the Broncos in 2006. The relationship lasted just three seasons, with Cutler going 17-20 as a starter before the Broncos fired Shanahan.
Tue, Jan 6, 2015 09:28:00 AM

A source informed John Middlekauff of 957 The Game Bay Area that Mike Shanahan could be hired as the Bills' general manager with Browns OC Kyle Shanahan as head coach.

Bills in-name GM Doug Whaley was reported to be leading the coaching search, but it's now been revealed new owner Terry Pegula is conducting interviews. The Bills have requested interviews with as many as 13 head-coaching candidates. The Shanahan duo wouldn't be awful in a head coach-offensive coordinator tandem, but allowing them to make all personnel decisions would require a huge leap of faith.
Mon, Jan 5, 2015 10:56:00 PM

Sources tell NBC4 that Mike Shanahan interviewed for the Raiders head coaching vacancy.

Shanahan has also garnered interest from the Bills and 49ers. The Oakland interview with Mark Davis and other team officials is a bit of a surprise as Shanny's first go-around with the organization was a short-lived disaster. He clashed with Al Davis and was fired just four games into his second season as coach (1989). Time has obviously healed wounds. The Raiders have also been linked to Tony Sparano, Jack Del Rio, Pat Shurmur, Eric Mangini, Todd Bowles, Pep Hamilton, Scott Linehan and Darrell Bevell.
Mon, Jan 5, 2015 12:27:00 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Bills are setting up an interview with former Redskins coach Mike Shanahan for their open head coach position.

Buffalo is moving quickly after Doug Marrone opted out of his contract on Wednesday. The team has already interviewed or scheduled interviews with Broncos OC Adam Gase, Seahawks DC Dan Quinn, Seahawks OC Darrell Bevell and Chargers OC Frank Reich. Shanahan will be added to that list, and there are reports the Bills are interested in Colts OC Pep Hamilton as well. With a playoff-caliber roster outside of the quarterback position, the Bills are an enticing option.
