A Fond Farewell from Co-Editor Doug Totten

Dear faithful readers of Niner Noise and devoted 49ers fans,

It has been an honor and a privilege to serve as an editor of Niner Noise for the past three years. I have enjoyed my time immensely and have been privileged to live out my dream as a sportswriter — and write about the San Francisco 49ers!

The time has come, however, for me to move on. With my growing commitments outside of Niner Noise, I am stepping down as Co-Editor. The fantastic Peter Panacy will continue to keep Niner Noise the great site it has become.

I am proud of the success Niner Noise has been able to achieve. Hopefully the 49ers will be able to find a bit of that in the coming years, though only time will tell. It does seem fitting, however, that this transition will occur while the 49ers themselves seek a new identity.

Thank you for reading Niner Noise. Without you, this site could not be what it is and I could not have done what I have been able to do.

While I transition away from Niner Noise, I will remain a part of the FanSided team. From here on out, you will be able to find my articles on FanSided.com. I will be joining that team as a contributor.

Thank you again for giving me the privilege to offer my analysis, opinions, and insight on the San Francisco 49ers. I am excited for what the future will bring, but I will miss this amazing job immensely and will always remember my time here fondly.

Be sure to stay in touch, and come find me over at FanSided!

God bless,
