Kyle Shanahan has signed a new contract, according to a report Monday from Adam Schefter.
Financial terms were not disclosed, but Schefter reported Shanahan will now be among the NFL’s five highest-paid coaches.
The new contract is a 6-year deal that wipes out the remaining three years on his original contract, which was also a 6-year deal.
Schefter reported that Shanahan and 49ers owner Jed York banged out the new deal themselves.
The 40-year-old is 23-25 in his three years as the Niners’ head coach. Upon inheriting a 2-14 team from Chip Kelly, Shanahan went 6-10 in 2017, fell to 4-12 in ’18, then rocketed to a best-in-the-NFC 13-3 record in 2019 with a Super Bowl appearance.
