Frank Gore has earlier said as well that in the future he wishes to join the San Francisco 49ers front office once his playing career comes to an end. He admitted that he knew about football and loved watching and scouting new talent.
“I love looking at talent. I love evaluating talent and I love ball,” Gore said on The SF Niners’ YouTube channel. “And [the 49ers] know that I know football players, what it’s supposed to take to be a football player.”
It is only fitting that Frank Gore has decided to retire at the team wherein he actually discovered his talents. He has talked about speaking with San Francisco 49ers owner Jed York about the technicalities of the one day contract which will enable him to retire with the 49ers. He has posted on Twitter with the caption – ‘Truly Blessed’ confirming his comeback to the 49era for his retirement.
“We still trying to figure out when I’m going through my one-day contract, to sign, do my retirement,” Gore said. “I told (owner) Jed York I always want to be a Niner. So we working on that right now.”
