In an early Monday afternoon piece on NFL.com, La Canfora mentioned that the 49ers, who fired head coach Mike Singletary late Sunday night, would be searching for an experienced executive to help pull the team out of its multi-year funk:

"49ers GM search will focus on men who have already done the job, and not younger execs. Floyd Reese, Randy Mueller and Ted Sundquist are candidates for the opening."

The 62-year-old Reese has been a part of the Patriots organization since January 2009 as a Senior Football Advisor. He was brought on board after former Vice President for Player Personnel Scott Pioli left for the Kansas City Chiefs. Reese spent 1994-2006 as the Executive Vice President and General Manager of the Tennessee Titans franchise (dating back to their days as the Oilers). The 2010 season is his 34th year in the NFL.
