The 49ers removed the interim tag today and officially announced the hiring of Mike Singletary as Head Coach. According to the Press Democrat the details of the contract is four years, $10 million. In the contract he has the right to hire and fire his assistant coaches. Here is a little more from Maiocco:
Team president Jed York made the announcement to the team shortly after the 49ers’ 27-24 victory over the Redskins on Sunday. There was already euphoria in the locker room, and the players erupted with cheers after they were told that Singletary would be the coach.
“I think all the guys who are happy today are going to regret it,” Singletary quipped.
Singletary is known as a straight-talking taskmaster who works his players hard. The 49ers better get prepared for a long offseason of work and a grueling training camp.
“This is the last time our season ends in December,” York said.
