San Francisco 49ers CEO Jed York stood in front of the media on Monday to address the disappointing 2015 season. While he was up on the podium for a good half hour talking, he didn’t say much of significance during that time.
One of the most commonly asked questions to York was about what the team was looking for in the next head coach after they fired Jim Tomsula on Sunday.READ MORE: 'I Feel Taken Advantage Of': Call Kurtis Investigates Insurance Rates Pricing People Out Of The Foothills
York did not give much insight into the head coaching search but he did say the team is looking for someone who is a “leader.”
He couldn’t give any concrete answers on where the team is planning on going from here on out, and he didn’t tell the media anything about the quarterback and coaching situation that wasn’t already known.
York expressed that the team is going to let the next head coach decide the coaching staff and who the quarterback will be for the team going forward.
The biggest news of the press conference was York stating that Trent Baalke will remain as the team’s general manager despite a decline in wins each of the least two seasons.
Baalke will be in charge of hiring the new head coach of the team. York did say the team has a short list of candidates, but can’t go into the matter any further.READ MORE: WATCH: Suspect Recorded Running From Hit-And-Run Crash Scene In Sacramento
According to reports, some of the candidates include New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton and Stanford head coach David Shaw.
When asked why he is confident Baalke can pick the right head coach after the blunder hiring Tomsula, he simply said, “he has done it before.”
