Shanahan says his first priority is finishing the staff. He wanted this job because he said CEO Jed York is committed to winning and the resources are all there.
This franchise holds a special place in Shanahan's heart. He moved up to the Bay Area in sixth grade and spent time as a ball boy for the 49ers.
Lynch said that he wants former players back in the fold and plans to surround himself with people who knows what he doesn't.
