Former 49ers kicker Mike Cofer's two Super Bowl rings were stolen last week from his home in Henderson, Nev., according to local police.

Cofer returned home on Thursday and noticed his front door had been forced open, said Henderson police spokesman Keith Paul. There were several items stolen from Cofer's house, including the Super Bowl rings.

"It's all under investigation," Paul told "No suspects have been arrested, and the rings and other items have not been recovered."

Cofer's ex-wife, Lisa Cofer, told the Las Vegas Sun that a coin collection, and an Xbox game console were also stolen. She says they left a diamond ring.

Cofer told Las Vegas' FOX5 that if the rings are not recovered, he can order replacements from the manufacturer. But he said it would not be the same.

"That's not the one that Eddie DeBartolo handed to you when you went up on stage," Cofer said.

Cofer played six seasons for the 49ers and was the kicker in the team's back-to-back Super Bowl victories following the 1988 and '89 seasons. Cofer made two field goals in the 49ers' 20-16 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals in Super Bowl XXIII. The next year, the 49ers defeated the Denver Broncos 55-10 to win Super Bowl XXIV.
