The 1975 San Francisco 49ers was their 26th Season in the NFL and the teams' 30th Season. Head Coach Dick Nolan and his squad came into the 1975 Season to improve on a 6-8 season in 1974. However, for the second time in three seasons, the team finished with a disappointing 5-9 record, missing the playoffs for the third consecutive season. Head Coach Dick Nolan was let go after the season. The highlight of the season was a 24-23 victory over the Rams in Los Angeles.
