Shake-up in 49ersland

The 49ers are having a big conference call at 1:30 p.m. today. I know it's big because John York, Jed York and new COO Andy Dolich, a former A's exec, will be on the line. Dolich was hired today -- I was on the phone with spokeswoman Lisa Lang 20 minutes ago; not sure why she didn't tell me -- to run the business side of operations. I'm told he will have nothing to do with football operations. Dolich, who has expertise in building sports arenas, was hired by John York, according to a team press release. Not sure what that says about previous reports that John has yielded power to eldest son Jed.

He joined The Bee as a Metro reporter in 1999 and started covering the 49ers in 2003. His favorite player of all time is Darrell Green.
