Jay Glazer reports that Nolan has been fired

Oct 20, 2008 at 4:57 PM--


According to Jay Glazer of FOXSports.com, San Francisco 49ers head coach Mike Nolan has already been fired.

This comes after a report from ESPN saying that Nolan would be let go after Sunday's game against the Seahawks. It makes sense that the 49ers would make a move immediately due to the leak being made public.

It is assumed that assistant head coach Mike Singletary will take over for Nolan.

The story has already been reported by Pro Football Talk.

In the waning seconds of Week 3, Aaron Rodgers drove a dagger through the 49ers' secondary to secure a comeback win and expose San Francisco's vulnerable backfield. That loss sent the Niners careening towards a 2-4 record after an optimistic start, with opposing quarterbacks averaging a passer rating of nearly 110 during their losing skid.

In six plays, the Chiefs marched 75 yards down the field, ending the game with an eight-yard touchdown pass from Mahomes to tight end Travis Kelce. The game has sparked much debate from the media and fans, who feel that the outcome came down to the coin flip. With both teams so explosive to that point, you

Wide receiver Deebo Samuel has been a tremendous success for the 49ers in an occasional running back role, but with more carries continuing to come his way, it's easy to wonder about what kind of long-term impact that role could take on Samuel's body. Samuel certainly isn't getting the type of workload one would normally see from a running back (73 carries over the past 10 games, with 20 of those coming the past two weeks), but given the limited shelf life of the average player at the position, there's always at least some concern over the idea of putting the star receiver through too much physical punishment. Samuel is a unique player, however, and it sounds like the 49ers are confident he's built to take on the extra workload. "It's something that you talk
