Reevaluating Jed York

Jed York, the young CEO of the 49ers, got off to a rocky start when he took over control of the team in 2008. Right off the bat, he made a two-part mistake. He hired the wrong head coach – Mike Singletary. He rushed to hire him. As you may recall, York signed Singletary to […]

Dolphins out in unpredictable pursuit of Harbaugh

Niners. Broncos. And – oh my – perceived longshot Stanford, suddenly, had shifted into the driver’s seat by Thursday night in the quest to secure the coach who has launched a thousand reports.
