Where's Mike McCarthy in this discussion? I remember he was among the names tossed in when the Niners were looking for a head coach during that Erickson-Nolan-Sing era.
Really? He was Alex's 1st OC. I can't imagine Nolan & McCarthy would have been in competition for the same job then wind up together on the same staff. Just doesn't make sense.
It does open up another question though... how much better would we have been had McCarthy stayed as OC for another couple of years? Our HC might not have been up for the job but the carousel at OC was a much bigger pile of puke
