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.

It wasn't too long ago that many expected Saleh to be the frontrunner for the Detroit Lions vacancy. Filling that role didn't happen, but there was no doubt that Saleh was likely on his way out of San Francisco. "I don't know what's wrong with people if they don't hire him," head coach Kyle Shanahan said earlier this month. "I mean, he's as good as you can get, and he knows more about football, all three phases, and he's going to hire the best staff, knows about players, he knows what they're talking about, who doesn't know what they're talking about, and he also knows how to deal with people."

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan has expressed confidence that his defensive coordinator, Robert Saleh, would do well in any head-coaching job interview. Saleh interviewed with the Detroit Lions on Thursday, a job for which many consider him to be the favorite. One NFL insider suggests that particular interview may not have gone as well as Shanahan might expect or Saleh might have hoped. "Saleh did not do very well in the Detroit interview, I was told. And is not a shoo-in to get the job," Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle said during a radio interview with SportsTalk 790's Adam Clanton and Adam Wexler (via
