The 49ers are going to fire Singletary, the only question is- now or after next week's game?
ST. LOUIS -- The drama and dysfunction reached new depths Sunday for the 49ers. And coach Mike Singletary will not return as head coach next season.
The only question is whether Singletary will be fired before or after the team's season finale, according to a source close to the situation. The 49ers are 5-10 with one game to play. Owner John York, team president Jed York and executives Trent Baalke and Paraag Marathe were in discussions Sunday afternoon whether to fire Singletary immediately or wait until after the team's final game of the season, the source told Comcast SportsNet.
Important note- Jed York stated that the team will look to hire a GM, and Jed and the GM will work on hiring a HC. Based on that, it seems like the big name candidates, eg Gruden or Harbaugh, probably aren't realistic as they are likely to be hired quick in the process.
