Former 49ers coach Jim Tomsula will interview with Saints

Jan 22, 2017 at 7:00 AM--


There has been some talk of where former San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Tomsula might land. Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that he will be interviewing with the New Orleans Saints at this week's Senior Bowl for their defensive line coach job.


Tomsula served as the 49ers defensive line coach for eight years before being promoted to their head coach following the firing of Jim Harbaugh. Tomsula is still one of the more respected defensive line coaches in the league.

With Tomsula as the head coach in 2015, the 49ers won five games. He was fired following that season and replaced by Chip Kelly. Tomsula also had a win while serving as the 49ers' interim head coach following the firing of Mike Singletary during the 2010 season. The Week 17 victory came against the Arizona Cardinals.

A Tomsula hiring would be significant for 49ers ownership because, if hired, his new salary would be deducted from the amount that San Francisco still owes him.

The San Francisco 49ers promoted DeMeco Ryans to defensive coordinator after Robert Saleh left to become the head coach of the New York Jets. Ryans was asked in June what fans can expect to see from his defense this season. Was he planning to follow the same blueprint that Saleh laid out, or were some bigger changes on the horizon? "Our defense will be a fast, attacking, aggressive defense," Ryans responded. "I want guys to play fast. I want guys who are smart. I want guys who are going to play physical. That's one thing for me is just growing up, watching the 49ers play defense. The defense has always stood out here. This has been a defensive organization. They



SI bullish on 49ers' Kyle Shanahan in head coach power rankings

Kyle Shanahan owns a record of 29-35 as the head coach of the San Francisco 49ers. He has won more than six games just once in his four seasons with the team. Yet, despite the losing records, those around the league still hold Shanahan in high esteem due to the coach's creativity as a play designer and play-caller. In his first two seasons as a head coach, Shanahan won a combined 10 games. However, his fortunes appeared to change in 2017, his first season in San Francisco, when the 49ers traded for quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and the team rattled off five consecutive wins to end the season. Expectations were high entering the next season, but the team's hopes were dashed when Garoppolo was lost to a torn ACL. Things seemed to come together in 2019. While the
