Mike Singletary signs 4-year contract worth $10 million

It's official according to Maiocco.  Mike Singletary has apparently signed a deal worth $10 million over 4 years that includes hiring and firing power over assistants (not exactly surprising):

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.

I realize it's only talk for now, but I do like that quote from Jed York.  It's a long way until next season, but the offseason has certainly begun on a high note.
