Now or Never for Mike Nolan

Mike Nolan

With the start of training camp a couple of weeks away I wonder:

How many wins will Mike Nolan need to secure his job?
If he does not get the team back to 8-8 he is fired at the end of the season.

Will he even make it through the season?
If by the middle of the season the team has only one or two wins he is canned.

Who would take over as head coach if he does get canned in mid-season, Mike Martz or Mike Singletary?
One would think Martz would take-over and that very well might be the case. But I think Singletary deserves it more because of the years he has put in with the 49ers and he is the Assistant Head Coach/Defense. He is one of the reasons why Patrick Willis was such a beast last year and won Defensive Rookie of the Year. Many teams have courted Singletary to be their Head Coach and the 49ers have been lucky no team has hired him away. If you think Singletary being hired away would not make a difference, see Norv Turner and Alex Smith.
