The 49ers will be holding the Mike Singletary introductory press conference at Noon Pacific time. I'm going to be a bit busy at that time so I thought I'd open up a thread for discussion of the press conference. Over at sf49ers.com, it looks like the press conference will be up on their Video Center. If that link doesn't bring it up at noon, if you go to sf49ers.com, and there's a story link that will take you to the press conference.
Also, some early player reactions are up at the 49ers website as well. Most give the usual, some surprise, but given the situation not shocking. Here are some other links about the firing:
