|49ers president Jed York said the team would first hire a GM before finding a new head coach.|
"The 49ers' decision to hire Mike Singletary immediately following their final regular season game seemed to qualify as a hasty move.
"Reports described a seemingly breathless Jed York making a quick, bold move in his first hours as team president. The 49ers came off like a team using an exclamation point after every sentence.
"Mike Singletary did a great job! Let's hire him right now! OMG! Next season is going to be soooo great! This is the last time a 49ers season will end in December!"
