Earlier on Tuesday, Adam Schefter of NFL Network reported that the 49ers had dumped offensive coordinator Mike Martz.
Matt Maiocco of the Santa Rosa Press-Democrat reports Martz has not been fired. Yet.
That said, Maiocco reports that Martz “seemed to concede that he will probably get fired by the end of the day.”
“I don’t know why this is happening,” Martz said in reference to the latest development and last week’s report that Martz would be fired. ”But I’ll move on. There is a way to do that stuff. When the season is over, you go do what needs to be done. But don’t drag me through the thorn bush.”
Martz also said that co-owner Jed York told Martz when he was hired that York didn’t want to hire him. Martz also said that he never had a conversation with G.M. Scot McCloughan that lasted more than two minutes.
McCloughan might say in response that every conversation he ever had with Martz was two minutes too long.
