Shanahan’s new six-year contract will overtake the final three years remaining from his previous contract.

Shanahan was able to take the 49ers to the Super Bowl in 2019. He has a Head Coaching record of 23-25 with the team. 

Previous to being a head coach, Shanahan worked as an offensive coordinator for nine years in the NFL. The last stint as the offensive coordinator with the Atlanta Falcons. Shanahan led the Falcons to record-breaking numbers, which resulted in a Super Bowl appearance in 2016. 

The 40-year-old is the son of former head coach Mike Shanahan, a two time Super Bowl Champion with the Denver Broncos. 

The 49ers are looking forward to continued success with Kyle Shanahan after last season’s Super Bowl appearance.
