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

Jed York, 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 under Kyle Shanahan’s coaching since 2017. These achievements include two Super Bowl appearances and four playoff appearances in total.

Under York’s leadership, the 49ers have overcome periods of dysfunction and seen success under Shanahan’s guidance. His ownership of the team represents a new chapter in its history with potential for continued success under his guidance.
