Jed York Career
He began working as a financial analyst for Guggenheim Partners at their New York City offices. However, he left them one year later. After quitting his first job, his parents brought him into their family-owned team, the San Francisco 49ers as director of strategic planning and later promoted him to vice president of strategic planning. In December 2008, he became president of the 49ers, with his parents transitioning to the posts of co-chairmen. With the 49ers off to an 0-5 start, York wrote to ESPN’s Adam Scheffer in October 2019 that the 49ers would win their division and make the playoffs.
Backing up to his assertion, the 40ers did come within one game. The following year, the Niners finished the season 13-2 with the 2nd seed in the National Football Conference. In the divisional round, the 49ers defeated the New Orleans Saints. They then went on to host the NFC Championship game against the New York Giants but lost 20-17. In 2012, York was replaced by Gideon Yu as team president, although he retained the title of CEO. In November 2014 after a 19-3 loss to the Seattle Seahawks, Yoth tweeted “Thanyou 49ers faithful for coming out strong tonight. This performance wasn’t acceptable. I apologize for that”.
This public statement sparked a media frenzy about York’s intent behind the Tweet and whether he was specifically referring to Coach Jim Harbaugh’s future. Trent Baalke then replaced former head coach Jim Harbaugh with Jim Tomsula, but Jed supported the change comparing it to the Golden State Warriors firing Mark Jackson and replacing him with Steve Kerr. Tomsula lasted one season leading the 49ers to a 5-11 record before getting fired on January 3, 2016.
