Mike Singletary is new San Fran coach

The San Francisco 49er’s announced that Mike Singletary, the former interim head coach for the last nine games, will be the new head coach at the start of the 2009 season. Singletary coached the team to a 5-4 finish and established the leadership that the organization so desperately lacked.

With the promotion of Singletary, I would guess that the 49er’s will be in the market for a new coordinator for next season. Mike Martz is a damn good coordinator but it has been said that Singletary and Martz have their differences, most likely because Singletary prefers the run and solid¬†defense game while Martz prefers a pass-happy offense. Whether Martz stays or not, I think the 49er’s will be a decent team next year and I wouldn’t be surprised to see them make a run at the division in 2009.

I had said before, along with many others, that Mike Singletary was the coach that this team needed. I’m happy that the York family decided to go with the wise decision. Singletary brings leadership, fire, and intensity to a team that has some young talent and good veterans.
