The San Francisco 49ers have re-signed head coach Kyle Shanahan to a contract extension on Monday. He received a new six-year contract with the team.
Shanahan is now tied to the team contractually through the 2025 season. He is now one of the Top 5 highest-paid coaches in the league.
Financial terms of his new contract were not disclosed. Shanahan received a contract extension months after guiding the 49ers to the Super Bowl.
San Francisco was defeated by the Kansas City Chiefs in Miami Gardens, Florida in February. The 49ers were leading in the event before the Chiefs came back to win the biggest event of the NFL season.
This is Shanahan’s second deal with the 49ers in the last three years. He guided the team from a rebuilding franchise to an NFC contender in those three short years.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Shanahan met with owner Jed York. During their negotiations, the two were able to strike this new agreement after talking about how much they’ve meant to each other.
The 40-year-old is one of the youngest coaches in the league. As the 49ers head coach, he is 23-25 with a 2-1 playoff record.
With the talent on the 49ers, they can be a contender in the NFC for years to come under Shanahan’s tutelage.
