Kyle Shanahan took over as head coach of the San Franciso 49ers in 2017. He has done a tremendous job so far and will lead the team into their fourth NFC Championship game next weekend.

However, Shanahan has a 1-2 record with San Francisco in Championship games. He led the 49ers to the Super Bowl in 2020 after taking down the Packers in the Championship game. However, the 49ers suffered a 30-21 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in the big game.

Last season, the 49ers lost the Championship game to the Philadelphia Eagles and didn’t have their top three quarterbacks available for selection. They also lost the NFC Championship game to the Los Angeles Rams in 2022.

Shanahan will be eager to get past the Championship round hurdle this season. The Super Bowl is set to be played at the Allegiant Stadium on Sunday, Feb. 11.
