Golden Nuggets: The Search Begins

Ed Szczepanski-USA TODAY Sports

After the season ended with no playoffs, Jed York wrote an email to the Niner faithful. In the letter, he stated that he made a change that was in the best interest of the team. He makes no reason for it. In fact, I have yet to hear his reasoning for the firing. Jed is ducking the questions about the decision like Floyd Mayweather in the boxing ring. He wants no part of explaining what happened to the relationship between him and Harbaugh. I guess that's fine for him. But it shows what kind of owner he is at the moment. If he wants to be a great owner, he should take notes from Robert Kraft and the Rooneys. They seem to stay out of the way and let their coaches coach.

The Niners began their search for their next head coach today. They reportedly interviewed DC Vic Fangio today. They have plans to speak to newly fired HC Rex Ryan and plan to interview both DCs Dan Quinn of the Seahawks and Todd Bowles of the Cardinals. None of those are too exciting for Niner fans. But to be quite honest, it may take awhile to get over this Jim Harbaugh debacle. I know they are great defensive coaches, but that doesn't mean they can be great head coaches. I would personally like Vic Fangio as the head coach and to bring in a great offensive coordinator. The players seem to really like Vic and respond to him. Most reports have the coaching decision coming in a couple of weeks. Until then, we can only speculate who will be the coach. We only ask that you keep Fangio in some capacity. Can't let him walk.
