Breaking news just came out of San Francisco.

San Francisco 49ers head coach Mike Singletary has been fired after a dismal season in which the Niners have been officially eliminated from playoff contention after a 5-10 season through their first 15 games. 

San Francisco was expected to win an almost unprecedentedly weak NFC West, in which the 7-8 St. Louis Rams are winning the woeful division through Week 15.

Instead, the 49ers are now back to square one, as their quarterback position is in limbo and team chemistry is seemingly at its lowest point in a long time.

The firing of Mike Singletary, which put an end to Singletary's 18-22 record with the team, now makes him the fourth head coach fired midseason, with Wade Phillips, Brad Childress and Josh McDaniels being the other victims.

A few coaches that could possibly be candidates for San Francisco's head coaching position are Stanford head coach Jim Harbaugh, Oregon head coach Chip Kelly as well as ESPN Monday Night Football analyst and former NFL head coach John Gruden.

Who the 49ers eventually hire remains to be seen but for now, defensive line coach Jim Tomsula will become the interim head coach as the San Francisco 49ers attempt to begin a new, more successful period in the seasons to come.
