Barring a dramatic change of course, the San Francisco 49ers plan to fire head coach Mike Nolan after the team’s game against Seattle on Sunday, a source told ESPN’s Michael Smith on Monday.
Next week is the 49ers’ bye week. Nolan is expected to be replaced by assistant head coach Mike Singletary. When reached by ESPN, a 49ers spokesman said: “We don’t respond to speculation. We are focused on Seattle.”
