Former San Francisco 49ers owner Eddie DeBartolo will witness Sunday's coin toss up close.
The 49ers are drawing a connection between their successful present and their past glory days.
Former owner Eddie Debartolo Jr. will be an honorary captain for this Sunday’s NFC Championship. DeBartolo owned the Niners for 23 years, starting in 1977. He was at the helm for all five of the team’s Super Bowl victories. The 49ers will hold a press conference Thursday afternoon to talk about the honor.
