In a bit of non-Seahawks NFC West schadenfreude, a breaking news banner currently on the front page of NFL.com is reporting that the 49ers have fired head coach Mike Nolan. Mike Singletary is the likeliest candidate to replace him.
First Scott Linehan and Lane Kiffin, and now Nolan–the heads are rolling fast and thick this year.
UPDATE: NFL.com has added a post on Nolan’s firing to their news blog, which you can read here. ~END~
