A new Rice for the 49ers?

October 27, 2008 7:30:38 PM PDT
The State Department is denying Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice could be the 49ers' next president.

A spokesperson says Rice has not been contacted by the team and insists that she will be heading to her new job at Stanford University next year.

But the NFL Network, citing team sources, is reporting that the 49ers are interested in pursuing Rice.

The team is side-stepping the report, saying it does not comment on rumors.

Rice is an avid football fan and has previously expressed interest in becoming NFL commissioner or a team president.
