Washington Redskins offensive coordinator Sean McVay returns to San Francisco — home city to a 49ers franchise

that was led to multiple Super Bowl championships by Sean’s grandfather, John.

Hired in 1978 to reconstruct a 49ers franchise that was coming off a 2-14 season, McVay — who served in several roles different roles including general manager — would turnaround the franchise quickly.

“After he was the head coach of the Giants, he got a chance to get on board with Coach Bill Walsh and those guys when they first got there,” McVay said. “He was kind of in an executive role and his role grew over the years and he was able to be a part of five championship teams.

“It was a real special thing for him.”
