Report: 49ers to demote team president Paraag Marathe
Friday December 4th, 2015

The San Francisco 49ers plan to demote team president Paraag Marathe, reports Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area.

Marathe will remain president through the Super Bowl, after which 49ers chief operating officer Al Guido is expected to take his place.

Despite the title change, Marathe will retain his role as lead contract negotiator and manager of the team’s salary cap. Changes in his job description will include increased focus on the team’s outside business interests, such as its minority stake in the Sacramento Republic soccer team.

Marathe was promoted to president two years ago after 13 years in the team’s front office. Since he was named president, the 49ers have an 11–17 record and are 3–8 this year.
