Kyle Shanahan, 49ers agree to new contract through 2025

The defending NFC champions have retained their coach for the foreseeable future.

The San Francisco 49ers and Kyle Shanahan have agreed to new contract that keeps the head coach with the team through the 2025 season, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday.

The team has since confirmed the news.

Shanahan earns a new contract after leading his team to Super Bowl LIV this past February. It was the culmination of one of the biggest turnarounds in NFL history.

According to NFL Research, the 2019 49ers had the second-largest single-season turnaround (playoffs included) going 15-4 after a 4-12 campaign in 2018. The 11-win difference is second only to the 1999 St. Louis Rams, who had 12 more wins than their previous year after winning Super Bowl XXXIV.

Shanahan, 40, enters his fourth year as head coach of the 49ers in 2020 and his 16th season as a coach in the NFL. Shanahan, the son of longtime NFL coach Mike Shanahan, served as an assistant under his father before getting hired as the offensive coordinator for the Cleveland Browns and Atlanta Falcons. Shanahan was hired before the 2017 season and has gone 23-25 in his first three seasons in San Francisco. He's the fourth coach to lead the franchise to a Super Bowl.
