The 49ers fired Baalke just prior to the team's final game of the 2016
season and officially announced his departure on January 1. Baalke had
officially served as the team's general manager from the 2011 season
through the 2016 season. Prior to the team's final game of last
season, a matchup against the Seattle Seahawks at Levi's Stadium,
Baalke confirmed that he had been fired.
Baalke was part of a house cleaning that saw the team fire the general
manager and head coach Chip Kelly. Baalke was replaced with John Lynch
while Kelly was replaced with Kyle Shanahan.
Baalke started his tenure with the 49ers in 2005 as their Western
Region Scout. In March of 2010, the 49ers terminated the contract of
then general manager Scot McCloughan, leaving Baalke to head the draft
during the following month. He briefly served as the vice president of
player personnel for the 49ers before being promoted to general
manager following the firing of head coach Mike Singletary.
Baalke was joined by head coach Jim Harbaugh and the two saw success
together. Baalke was even named Executive of the Year for the 2011
season after receiving credit for transforming the 49ers from a 6-10
team into a 13-3 team in his first season as general manager.
