Do not expect the 49ers to make an official announcement to reveal the identity of their starting quarterback.

A year ago, coach Kyle Shanahan declined to confirm Jimmy Garoppolo would be the 49ers’ starter.

Shanahan, through stubbornness or any other reason, has already said he will not make an announcement this year, either, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bayarea reports.

But it became even more obvious on Tuesday that everyone around the team expects Trey Lance to take over.

After all, Shanahan said he does not even expect Garoppolo to be with the 49ers this season.

"I expect at sometime, most likely, he’ll be traded but, who knows,” Shanahan said. “That’s not a guarantee. It went on hold when it (surgery) happened. When he’s healthy we’ll see what happens.”
