Kyle Shanahan is not going anywhere. He will remain in Santa Clara for at least another half decade on a brand-new, six-year deal. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Shanahan’s old contract, which had three years left on it, had those three years replaced discernibly with better money and added another three. Per Schefter, it makes him one of the top-five highest-paid head coaches.

Since taking over, Shanahan and general manager John Lynch long preached that what they were building would take time, and last season, in year three, with a 13-3 record and a trip to the Super Bowl, the fruits of that labor were borne out. Clearly, the organization believes it was not a fluke and rightfully rewarded the NFL’s best play-caller with a deal that ensures he can continue to keep a long-term picture.

The only remaining question, and it might be more of a question of when, not if, is Lynch. He came in with Shanahan and the duo is effectively tied at the hip. Not extending Lynch now would certainly raise eyebrows about his future with the organization.
