Morriss could not produce a winning record in his five seasons, going 18-40 overall and 7-33 in conference games. He had a year left on his contract.

The leading candidate to replace Morriss is Baylor icon Mike Singletary, a linebacker for coach Grant Teaff and the Bears from 1977-80. Singletary was selected to 10 straight Pro Bowls during his 12 seasons with the Chicago Bears and was elected to Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1998.

Baylor (3-9, 0-8 Big 12) ended its season with a 45-14 home loss to Oklahoma State on Saturday night.

Other potential candidates are Arkansas coach Houston Nutt, who has strongly denied reports that this will be his last year with the Razorbacks, Houston coach Art Briles and Oklahoma State offensive coordinator Larry Fedora.

Singletary is in his third season as assistant head coach of the San Francisco 49ers.

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters before Wednesday's practice and provided some good news regarding George Kittle. The All-Pro tight end will return to practice after sustaining an MCL sprain during Week 1 against the Arizona Cardinals and missing this past weekend's matchup against the New York Jets. He is, however, expected to be limited. Kittle's status for Sunday's game against the New York Giants will be dependent on how he looks during practices this week. Shanahan also noted that running back Tevin Coleman's knee sprain is more severe than Raheem Mostert's knee injury. While Mostert may miss this weekend's game, he is not expected to miss an extended period. Shanahan says Coleman could miss four weeks, though, and that the

Quarterback Nick Mullens could get his ninth NFL start on Sunday when the San Francisco 49ers visit the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium. Starter Jimmy Garoppolo will not practice today and is a longshot to play after suffering a high-ankle sprain this past weekend against the New York Jets. "I would be surprised if Jimmy gets back later in the week," head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters. "I know he's still pulling to do it. But Nick's ready to go, and if something happens to Nick, C.J. (Beathard) will be ready to go. "Nick's got a lot of playing time with us. 2018 prepared him for moments like this. He always does a good job in practice, and I'm excited to see him get his opportunity." The 49ers coach was asked how much Mullens has developed
