Mike Singletary fired is the latest headline from the NFL. ESPN is reporting that the 49ers have parted ways with their head coach.
The 49ers owner Jed York canned Singletary and replaced him with defensive line coach Jim Tomsula on an interim basis. The news comes on the heels of the 49ers' latest loss—a heartbreaking loss to division rivals the St. Louis Rams.
