49ers Offseason: Are Jed York' Hirings Truly About Winning?

Since the final Gatorade bath of Jim Harbaugh as San Francisco 49ers head coach, Jed York and the 49ers brass have drastically overhauled the coaching staff of a team that what was, not too long ago, a serious Super Bowl contender.

San Francisco 49ers plummet in the latest Power Rankings

The offseason is only unofficially upon us, as teams have made coaching and front office changes, released players to create cap space, made decisions on their own pending free agents, and started evaluating draft prospects. As a result, teams look slightly different now than they did when the regular season ended. And that means it’s time to once again grade each franchise in...

York family ties to hockey run deep

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) Long before he took over the San Francisco 49ers from his parents, the family business for Jed York was hockey as much as football. As a kid growing up in Youngstown, Ohio, York made the 70-mile drive to Pittsburgh with his grandfather, Ed DeBartolo Sr., to watch the family's other team, the Penguins, play hockey much more often than he got to see the 49ers...

San Francisco 49ers owner Jed York fares only so-so in Power Rankings

In any business, success or failure tends to trickle down from the top. This is certainly the case in the National Football League. Teams with solid ownership are the ones that inevitably compete for championships year in and year out, while franchises with less stable structures at the top are typically mired in mediocrity or stuck in the cellar. That’s what makes cover32′s...

Niners doing their best to be the new Raiders

The San Francisco 49ers have had a very Oakland Raiders-esque offseason. It all started when their owner, Jed York, decided to put his pride above the success of the team when he fired head coach Jim Harbaugh. As great as Al Davis was for the Raiders, he was also very stubborn and at times allowed his pride to stand in the way of doing what was best for the team (think: Marcus Allen...

Jed York Says Winning Super Bowls Not About Schemes

While his new head coach was busy face planting in his introductory press conference, San Francisco 49ers CEO Jed York also had time to add in a few odd comments of his own. “When you’re talking about winning a Super Bowl, it’s not about having the most innovative scheme on this side of the ball or on that side of the ball,” said York on Thursday afternoon while seated next...

San Francisco 49ers: Does Jim Tomsula=Steve Kerr?

The San Francisco 49ers did something only a Jed York led football team would do. They conducted a false head coaching search when they already knew who their head coach would be. Jim Tomsula, a “Yes Man” to York, was as far back as last year the head coach in waiting. This though didn’t stop York and General Manager Trent Baalke from conducting interviews with numerous candidates...
