Nolan: I'll be back in the morning

Well, a two-and-a-half hour stakeout paid off ... sort off. John and Jed York finally left the 49ers facility at 7 p.m. after meeting for several hours with coach Mike Nolan. The upshot is that nothing has been decided. In fact, the three will meet again tomorrow morning.
Asked if had come to any conclusions regarding Nolan's future with the team, John York said, "No." Asked when there might be a resolution, he said, "It depends when the meetings are over."
Mike and Kathy Nolan left moments later. Nolan lowered his window and said, "I've only got one thing to say to you guys -- Happy New Year and I'll be back in the morning." Then he gave a thumb's up sign and sped off.
The bottom line is that Nolan will be the coach in 2008 ... even if it's only for a day.
