SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) -San Francisco 49ers coach Mike Nolan missed his second straight practice Saturday for family reasons.
The 49ers didn't specify why Nolan was absent, but his father, former 49ers coach Dick Nolan, is known to be in declining health with Alzheimer's disease and prostate cancer.
Nolan returned to the Bay Area on Saturday shortly after the 49ers wrapped up their workout for Monday night's road game against the Seattle Seahawks.
Assistant head coach Mike Singletary ran practice for the second straight day for the 49ers (2-6), who have a six-game losing streak.
``I told him, 'Hey, just do what you have to do,''' Singletary said. ``We'll be fine here, and when he gets back, we'll be ready to rock.''
Dick Nolan, who played nine NFL seasons before coaching in San Francisco and New Orleans, lives in an assisted-care facility in the Dallas area.
