49ers Pass on Cottrell

Ted Cottrell released a statement after hearing he was not hired for the San Francisco 49ers' head coaching position.

"I was informed today by Terry Donahue that they have decided to hire Dennis
Erickson as the next San Francisco 49ers head coach.  While it is obviously
disappointing, I would like to thank Dr. York, Mr. Donahue and the entire
San Francisco 49ers staff for their professionalism throughout the
interviewing process.  I wish them the best of luck as they prepare for the
2003 season."
