ESPN and the NFL Network are reporting that the 49ers are interested in talking to Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice as a potential Team President. They think that she can get help get financing for the stadium.

This is typical York. A Team President that knows nothing about football? Make her head of financing for a stadium. I get that. She knows politics and can navigate the Bay Area political scene. But Team president? Where would she fall on the org chart? Next to McCloughan? Beside McCloughan? Is ESPN reporting that we've fired McCloughan before the 49ers let McCloughan know? Two weeks ago I would have thought that preposterous, but given how they handled the Nolan firing, I wouldn't put it past them.

This just stinks of a desperation move. If the Yorks had all the pieces in place in either Santa Clara or San Francisco they would not need to make this move.
