Niners Fire Mike Martz

The San Francisco 49ers announced today that offensive coordinator Mike Martz has been dismissed from the coaching staff. “After an evaluation period I felt it was best to go in a different direction,” said head coach Mike Singletary regarding the dismissal of Mike Martz. “This was not an easy decision because I appreciate Mike Martz, and I enjoyed working with him. He is a true professional, and I wish him the best in the future. I do recognize the need for a long term solution on the offensive side of the ball.”
