McDaniel, 38, was reportedly a finalist for the job along with Dallas Cowboys offensive coordinator Kellen Moore and former Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daboll, who was named the head coach of the New York Giants last week.

McDaniel, who is biracial, is the first minority to be hired this head coaching cycle. The 49ers will receive a third-round compensatory pick in 2022 and 2023, the NFL Network reported.

McDaniel worked under 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan for the majority of his coaching career. He served as the Texans offensive assistant from 2006 to 2008.

McDaniel joined the Browns in 2014 as the team’s receivers coach, and then became the offensive assistant from 2015 to 2016 in Atlanta under Shanahan.

The 49ers hired McDaniel as the team’s run game coordinator in 2017 and was promoted to offensive coordinator this past season. San Francisco was ranked seventh in total yards and 13 in points scored.
