Following their loss to the Rams, the 49ers fired head coach Mike Singletary. It was a move widely anticipated since the expectations were for the Niners to make the playoffs this year.
DL coach Jim Tomsula will take over for the one remaining game of the season.
Team owner/president also said that the team intends to hire a GM and such person will be responsible for bringing in a head coach.
Singletary was given the option to resign after their loss, but he declined such option. He was 18-22 in his time as the coach of the Niners.
