Kyle Shanahan responds to rumors linking father Mike to Packers job

Kyle Shanahan 49ers

The Green Bay Packers have arguably one of the most enticing head coaching vacancies we have seen in the NFL in decades, but would the opportunity to coach Aaron Rodgers be enough to convince the legendary Mike Shanahan to come out of retirement?

His son doesn’t think so.

Shanahan is one of many high-profile names that have been mentioned as possible Mike McCarthy replacements. When asked on Thursday if he thinks his father would be interested in the job, San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan expressed some doubt.

The elder Shanahan is now 66 and has not coached in the NFL since he was with Washington in 2013. While the idea of an offensive-minded coach who has won three Super Bowls working with Rodgers might make for a great storyline, it seems unlikely that either side would be interested.

For what it’s worth, Shanahan did interview for one NFL head coaching vacancy a few years back. But when you’re 66 and haven’t coached since 2013, three years is a long time. Rodgers might be better off working with a young, fresh mind.
