Condoleezza Rice, Obviously Qualified, Could Be Interested in 49ers Front Office Job
NFL Fanhouse ^ | Oct 26th 2008 | Ryan Wilson

Posted on 10/26/2008 12:12:06 PM PDT by nickcarraway

The 49ers canned head coach Mike Nolan on Monday, and apparently, it's just the beginning of a front office overhaul. The club managed just 18 wins in 55 games, and were 2-5 this season. That, along with 2005 first-overall pick Alex Smith's glacial development had just about everything to do with Nolan's current status.

But this morning, NFL Network's Adam Schefter reports that Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice might be interested in a job with the 49ers in the near future. "We all know that change has swept through San Francisco, but now it looks like more could be coming. The 49ers have said they're in the market for a front-office type of executive -- a president.

And interestingly enough ... Condoleezza Rice has told people that she would like to become president of a football team. So, she's headed to be out in California in January, the two sides could wind up speaking. The 49ers told me this week they are definitely interested in speaking to ... Rice about taking on a president-type of role within the organization; a lot of people feel she could be very instrumental in procuring a new stadium for the ... 49ers."

Yes, because a new stadium will solve the team's inability to win games. Look, I know Rice is a huge sports fan, but why exactly is she qualified for the job? Oh, right, because she was so effective as National Security Advisor and later Secretary of State.

The absurdity of it all naturally results in Warren Sapp providing a not completely insane observation: "The multi-tasking didn't work in Washington so maybe the single-tasking will work in San Francisco."

Really, I can't see how this might end badly.

Oh great, she’ll want to have six party talks with the other NFL teams that the 49ers compete with in hopes of reaching a peace agreement which will eliminate those pesky on-field injuries.

I hope Condi Rice gets it. I have never really cared for football, but I think the idea is kind of funny.

She should be forewarned, though - San Fransisco is hostile territory.

Now the 49ers will have two famous tight ends named Rice.

Hey, I can see it. They need to do something with all that anger.

As for President Bush, I think he should become CEO of Haliburton. I understand it pays well, and it would make the leftists crazy. Second choice would be university president.

Why would anyone be interested in a job with the Niners at this point? The team stinks and there’s no reason to think they’ll stop stinking in the next 10 years.

Denise and John York are buffoons-no one in their right mind would want to be associated with this outfit.

My tagline was written by Pat Buchannan; it was in one of his op-eds, I’m afraid you’d have to look through them to find which one.

She has served the public for so long, she deserves a fun job like this. Plus, it will keep her out of the State Department (what is it about State that messes up former Defense folks?)

No, Bush should go home to his liberal roots of Connecticut.

I wish she had went to work for the niners eight years ago. The nation would have been much better served.

she’d probably pressure the 49’ers to give some of their best players to other teams...for the sake of peace.

I wouldn't go there if I were you, Ryan.

Agreed. John York is one of the worst owners in football.

A well preserved 53 years. I don't know why she's getting attacked on FR. She's done a far better job than pussy-footed Powell.

I’m just glad to see anything associated with the Debartolo name struggle. Denise Debartolo York is ugly enough to make a train take a dirt road.

Rice has not endorsed John McCain, by the way.

"...She has been insulted at least twice by the French and never knew she was insulted...?"

She considered the source?

I think she just wants to go back to the private sector quietly. What’s wrong with that?

Nothing. It’s been a long eight years for Condie Rice.
