Niners' New Head Coach

This is going to be a tall order for the Atlanta Falcons' erstwhile offensive coordinator.  His Atlanta offense led the NFL in scoring during the regular season, thanks in large part to the play of league MVP quarterback Matt Ryan.

Suspect play calling was made late in the fourth quarter of Sunday's Super Bowl, which saw the Falcons blow a 25-point lead and lose in overtime to the New England Patriots.

The Niners, who have the second overall pick in this year's collegiate draft, have won a total of 15 games the last three seasons (eight of those victories came in 2014 under former head coach Jim Harbaugh) and are coming off their fourth 2-14 campaign.

Kyle's dad Mike coached the Denver Broncos to back-to-back Super Bowl titles in the late 1990s.  Then again, he had Hall-of-Fame quarterback John Elway leading the way.

The two quarterbacks San Francisco employed this past season---Colin Kaepernick and Blaine Gabbert----are not exactly Hall-of-Fame types.
