John Elway Q&A on 49ers GM John Lynch: ‘He likes those challenges’ Like John Elway, 49ers general manager John Lynch played football and baseball at Stanford. Like Elway, Lynch was a Super Bowl champion and nine-time Pro Bowler who finished his decorated career with the Broncos. […] like Elway, Lynch hopes to succeed as an executive despite having no previous NFL front-office experience. Elway, 56, of course, has flourished in his role since joining the Broncos in 2011. […] he’s given Lynch, one of his close friends, some assistance for his new role with the 49ers. For starters, Lynch, then a FOX analyst, received informal training when he attended meetings, evaluated players and went to the combine with the Broncos in 2013. […] last week, on Lynch’s second full day as the 49ers GM, he hired Broncos director of college scouting Adam Peters as his vice president of player personnel.
