Among all the mass posts regarding the swirling speculation with the GM and head coach searches, I figured it would be refreshing to pay some attention to a little known guy who has made a big impact (pun intended) on this team. Tomsula is a guy who I wouldn't be surprised to eventually become a coordinator one day. The results speak for themselves.
The effort Tomsula has given since joining the 49ers coaching staff in 2007 has shown up directly on the field. After limiting Rams running back Steven Jackson to just 48 yards on Sunday, the 49ers have not allowed a 100-yard rusher in an astounding 21 straight games.
Tomsula is a player's kind of coach, and they feed off his positive energy. In the recent article about him, you can tell he's very well respected both because of the person he is, but hugely because of the tremendous teacher he is. This is the kind of man we have to keep around this team. I hope no matter who we bring in, Tomsula is kept in some sort of role.
“He’s an exciting guy to be around, always energetic, always happy,” said defensive end Ray McDonald, who is in his fourth season with Tomsula. “You want to be playing for a guy who’s always firing you up and being positive. He loves football and he loves to coach.”
. . .
“He breaks it down on your level,” nose tackle Aubrayo Franklin said. “Some guys learn different than others. Some guys are classroom guys and some learn through repetition. He’s willing to take the time and stay as long as it takes so you get the technique and the system down.”
Ladies and gents, I thought it was important to step aside from all the repetitive GM/Coach search hullabaloo, and pay special notice to a guy behind the scenes who has been helping this team more than many may realize. Here's to a fantastic coach, Mr. Jim Tomsula.
