Kyle Shanahan was introduced as the new head coach of the 49ers at a press conference on Thursday and a lot of the answers were familiar to anyone who has been at introductory press conferences in the past.

Shanahan is looking for the best possible players and assured the media that he feels the organization is committed to winning, but he did give a bit of a view into his coaching mindset when he was asked about the end of Super Bowl LI. Shanahan was asked if it was accurate that he said I blew it in reference to his play calling after the game.

Shanahan said he doesnt recall those exact words, but admitted it sounds like him because youre responsible for what happens out there. He explained that he regrets any play that doesnt work, but doesnt regret his approach because he believed it was what had gotten the Falcons to the Super Bowl and that he believed it was true to what the team had been all year.
