The San Francisco 49ers have hired Hall of Fame candidate and Fox analyst John Lynch to be their general manager, the team announced Sunday night.
Lynch’s deal with the wholesale mlb jerseys 49ers will be for six years — the same contract length the 49ers are planning to give Kyle Shanahan when they officially make him their head coach, sources informed of the situation told NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport.
Fox Sports first reported Lynch’s hiring.
The finalists were believed to be cheap jerseys Vikings assistant George Paton and Terry McDonough, the Cardinals’ vice president of player personnel. Rapoport said the 49ers identified Lynch cheap nfl jerseys as a candidate “weeks ago.”
The 45-year-old, who last played in 2008, has never held a job in an NFL front office.
The move NEW seems on par with the surprising decision the Broncos made in 2011 to make John Elway their general manager, although Elway did spend a few years in charge of an Arena Football League team before taking the job. Lynch has been an analyst for Fox Sports since Interview 2008.
One advantage Lynch would seem to have? As part of his job with Fox he is able to travel every week and spend cheap jerseys his days in meetings with team personnel, ska executives and coaches as part of his broadcasting responsibilities. This would theoretically give him a complete picture of how some of the league’s more successful operations work.
