“His contributions are immense,” said Fangio when asked about Shanahan on Wednesday.
“There’s plenty of guys that coach in this league, both as head coaches and assistant coaches, that somehow came through Mike. Obviously with his son (49ers Head Coach Kyle Shanahan), (Rams Head Coach) Sean McVay, (Packers Head Coach Matt) LaFleur in Green Bay and others.
