The 49ers are currently on the second-longest regular-season winning streak in franchise history, and the good vibes continued Friday with the club announcing a multi-year contract extension for coach Kyle Shanahan and running back John Lynch.
The 49ers previously signed Shanahan to an extension for the 2025 season, while Lynch was extended through 2024. The terms of their new contracts were not immediately known.
The 49ers improved to 3-0 on the season Thursday night with a 30-12 win over the New York Giants at Levi’s Stadium.
The 49ers have now won 13 straight regular season games, dating back to Week 8 of last season. The organization’s longest regular season winning streak is 15 games, when the 49ers went undefeated from Week 12 of the 1989 season to Week 10 of the 1990 season.
In their third season together, the 49ers were the top seed in the NFC and advanced to Super Bowl LIV, where they lost to the Kansas City Chiefs, 31-20 at Miami Gardens.
The 49ers have advanced to the NFC Championship Game in each of the past two seasons.
With Shanahan-Lynch pairing three games into their seventh season, the 49ers compiled a 55-46 regular season record with a 6-3 record in the postseason.
Bill Walsh is the longest-serving coach in 49ers history. He coached the 49ers for 10 seasons from 1979 to 1988.
Shanahan’s new contract will likely allow him to surpass three-time Super Bowl winner Walsh in the number of seasons leading the organization.
