Jed York set to become the primary owner of the 49ers

Jed York, currently the CEO of the San Francisco 49ers, is set to become the principal owner of the team after acquiring sufficient equity from his mother, Denise DeBartolo York. This move will solidify his position as the team’s owner and give him control over its operations. The league is expected to approve this change in ownership this week.

At 43 years old, York has been leading the 49ers since 2010 and will now have the opportunity to continue doing so indefinitely. Despite not achieving the same level of success as his uncle, who oversaw five Super Bowl victories for the team, York has led the 49ers to three Super Bowls, albeit without winning any.

Under York’s leadership, the 49ers have overcome periods of dysfunction and seen success under the coaching of Kyle Shanahan since 2017. Shanahan has led the team to two Super Bowl appearances and four playoff appearances in total. With York’s ownership of the team representing a new chapter in its history, there is potential for continued success under his guidance.
