    Niners interview former Rams personnel man Softli


    SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- San Francisco ***** president and CEO Jed York has interviewed Tony Softli, the first known candidate to fill the team's vacant general manager position, a person with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press.

    Softli, a former personnel executive with the Carolina Panthers and St. Louis Rams, met Tuesday with York. The source spoke on condition of anonymity because of the private nature of the matter. York fired coach Mike Singletary late Sunday after a 25-17 loss at St. Louis eliminated the ***** (5-10) from playoff contention, their eighth straight year out of the postseason.

    York vowed to make his team a contender, starting by hiring a GM, who in turn will choose Singletary's successor. San Francisco has been without a general manager since Scot McCloughan's abrupt departure last March, which York called a "mutual parting." McCloughan wound up with division rival Seattle, and Trent Baalke took over football operations for the Niners.

    York, who said Baalke, vice president of player personnel, would be considered for the GM job, planned to spend this and next week focused on the search for a general manager. The *****, picked during preseason by many to win the NFC West, haven't had a winning season since their last trip to the playoffs in 2002.

    Promoted defensive line coach Jim Tomsula will coach Sunday's season finale, at home against Arizona.

    Comcast SportsNet Bay Area was first to report Softli has interviewed.
