Cable No Longer Interested in Niners
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — The San Francisco 49ers' list of potential head coaches is down to just Atlanta offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan.
Seattle offensive line coach Tom Cable has withdrawn from consideration, one day after New England offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels pulled out of the running. Cable's agent says his client is committed to the Seahawks.
The Niners can't hire Shanahan until the Falcons' season ends. Atlanta takes on the visiting Green Bay Packers in the NFC championship game on Sunday. The Falcons averaged a league-leading 33.8 points a game this season.
Meanwhile, the 49ers are still searching for a general manager.
