Jason Cole: 49ers leaning toward keeping Jim Tomsula at this point

Dec 23, 2015 at 9:33 AM--


Bleacher Report's Jason Cole stated today that, as of right now, the San Francisco 49ers are leaning toward keeping head coach Jim Tomsula once the season ends. He stated that management wants to keep some sort of continuity despite going backwards this season.

Cole added that there are some concerns from the 49ers about Tomsula. "However, there are concerns within this organization, and specifically in the locker room, about the ability of Tomsula to control the locker room and get guys focused on playing hard week in and week out," said Cole.

He also states that another concern is Tomsula's ability to attract assistant coaches and top-level talent. While a final decision on Tomsula has not yet been made and that he may ultimately be fired, Cole believes that the team is leaning toward retaining him. "That my not be the best solution for the 49ers long term," Cole said.

Jimmy Garoppolo is the San Francisco 49ers quarterback right now. Rookie Trey Lance is his eventual successor. Everyone expects the Garoppolo to Lance transition to occur after this season. The veteran passer is scheduled to earn $24.2 million in base salary next year. That's a hefty one-year price tag for any team to take on, including the 49ers. With next year's rookie quarterback class expected to be underwhelming, Colin Cowherd believes there will be a market for Garoppolo. "[The 49ers are] going to get something for Jimmy Garoppolo," Cowherd insisted on his show, The Herd. "... This Jimmy Garoppolo thing, they're going to get a big pick for that.
