It’s official: Singletary hired as 49ers permanent coach

By Tim Kawakami, Mercury News

Minutes after the 49ers’ last-second victory over Washington was complete, the 49ers announced that interim coach Mike Singletary was no longer an interim. As reporters filed into Singletary’s usual post-game interview room, 49ers staffers handed out a press released headlined: “49ers announce that Mike Singletary will remain as head coach.” No financial terms were announced and they did not indicate the number of years for the new contract. But a Fox TV report indicated that Singletary had agreed to a five-year deal. “Mike Singletary’s leadership ability has galvanized the players and coaching staff to deliver improved results on the field,”

General Manager Scot McCloughan said in the release. “By turning the second half of the season around, he has accmoplished what few interim head coaches have been able to do.” After taking for Mike Nolan in October, Singletary finished 5-4. The 49ers finished with a 7-9 record. “After discussions with ownership, we agree that Mike has earned the head coach position,”
McCloughan’s statement continued. “I look forward to working with Mike to continue to build on the momentum he has created as we prepare for the 2009 season.” There was no announcement on the loudspeakers at Candlestick Park as the fans left the stadium. But word had begun to filter out about a half hour after the game.

After Joe Nedney made the 39-yard field goal to win the game, Singletary hugged quarterback Shaun Hill then left the field to roars from the remaining crowd.
