Does John Lynch have any National Football League front office experience?

Does John Lynch have any National Football League front office experience?

However, 49ers' CEO Jed York believes that this time, San Francisco is headed in the correct direction due to their willingness to try new things.

On Sunday night, York and the team announced that they have hired FOX analyst and former National Football League safety John Lynch as the team's new general manager.

John Lynch was instrumental in turning around one NFL franchise, a fact that could help usher him into the Pro Football Hall of Fame this Saturday.

Lynch will replace Trent Baalke, whom the 49ers fired before their regular-season finale against the Seahawks on January 1.

This year, he heads into the process as one of just a handful of players to earn induction into two individual teams' commemoration of their greatest players. Setting aside the fact that Shanahan effectively hired Lynch, it's still worth going back through those words for some context to their relationship. It's a point driven home by the fact that the Niners didn't hire any of the nine executives they interviewed despite spending all but one week of the past month with the only general manager job available, and by the length of contracts they intend to give Lynch and Shanahan. Something tells me that the media will not become any less confrontational the next time York steps in front of the podium. Lynch played all four of his seasons in Denver while Mike Shanahan was the Broncos head coach.

The 49ers caused some audible gasps when they announced their choice for general manager.

The 49ers are expected to hire current Falcons offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan as their new head coach, a move that will certainly draw more optimism than the Lynch signing. Millen spoke to the Detroit Free Press about Lynch's hire with San Francisco. Lynch has served as an National Football League color commentator for Fox over the years, as well as on Broncos' preseason telecasts on KTVD-Channel 20.

"John has the benefit of never having really left the game, doing what he's been doing since he stopped playing", said Barber, who keeps in close contact with Lynch and knows his former teammate had recently been doing some player-evaluation work for the Broncos on the side.

"I think the 49ers were looking for people they could fit together - to build the team similar to what they had with Bill Walsh and John McVay", Wooten said. The things that are factors are, can you manage people?
