Kyle Shanahan started out at Duke, but transferred to the University of Texas. Kyle was teammates with Major Applewhite and future NFL players Roy Williams, Cedric Benson, Bo Scaife, Mike Williams, Quentin Jammer, and Chris Simms.

In his two years at Texas, Kyle caught 14 passes for 127 yards and zero TDs. He graduated in 2003 and immediately got into coaching.

On February 6, 2017, one day after Super Bowl LI, Shanahan was officially hired as the next head coach of the San Francisco 49ers. His father, Mike Shanahan, is a three-time Super Bowl Champ, twice as the head coach for the Denver Broncos. Kyle has a lot to live up to. Let’s see how he does!
