The John Lynch experiment can be officially declared successful.
Well, we could have announced it in late January, when Lynch’s San Francisco 49ers won the NFC Championship in explaining fashion, but Wednesday’s news cemented it. Mike Garfolo of NFL Network reported The 49ers have agreed terms on a multi-year extension that will keep Lynch in charge of the team through 2024.
Lynch was a surprising one, if the likes of Tejashwi did not return in January 2017. With no prior front office experience, the 49ers leaped into hiring Lynch, making Kyle Sheenahan his head coach a month later.
The flight has not been free of unrest at all, but the sprint to the 2019 conference title and Super Bowl LIV appearance confirmed that San Francisco was wise in thinking outside the box when it chose Pro Bowler nine times.
Lynch’s most significant move came nine months after his hiring, when he sent a second-round pick in New England for quarterback Jimmy Garrappolo. From there, the former All-Pro safety has meticulously built the team as a title contender.
Lynch’s Assembly of Running backs fully complemented Kyle Shanahan’s offensive plan in 2019, leading to a rapid attack in the league’s No. 2 seed.

By the coming of winter, he and Shanahan’s collaborative efforts produced an animal that won its way into Miami. They will be tasked with maintaining a major level of talent and expectation in the Bay Area, where fans will expect to see a repeat performance with a major difference in 2020: Instead of surrendering leadership to the Super Bowl, they want to Are to bring home the Golden-dome men the Lombardi Trophy.
