49ers insist new hire unrelated to coach's last name sounding like Don Shula

It has been widely speculated that having a last name that sounds like Don Shula, the Hall of Fame Miami Dolphins coach, may have influenced the front office to promote the longtime defensive line leader. "Don, er, Jim is a talented and very well respected coach," said one team official. "Jim Don-Shula is the right person for the job."
