Tomsula on future: “I’m going to coach until somebody tells me I’m not”

Dec 28, 2015 at 11:55 AM--


San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Tomsula spoke to the media today and touched on a number of topics.

On the injury front, DT Quinton Dial has a back strain. DE Arik Armstead had a leg contusion. X-rays on him came back negative. LB Eli Harold dislocated finger. They put it back in and Harold returned to the game.

As for the team's penalties during Sunday's loss to the Detroit Lions, Tomsula said that he does not have an excuse for the many mistakes made by the 49ers defense. He called the mistakes "absolutely inexcusable." They are trying to develop consistency. He stated that the biggest problem that the team had on Sunday wasn't the contact or setting up, it was wrapping up tackles.


Despite the team's continuing problems, Tomsula believes they are building. The same goes for the 49ers coaching staff. "I think there's been a lot of growth," Tomsula said. "We're just going to keep working."

When asked if he believed that he would be coaching with the 49ers next season, he responded by saying, "Yeah. I'm going to coach until somebody tells me I'm not." He has not had discussions with management about his future. He said that the biggest thing he is asked by management is if there is anything they can do to help. They ask, "Is there anything we can do for you?"

He has not talked with general manager Trent Baalke on the roster's future and where it needs to go. Everything is focused on the week at hand. "There's obviously conversation. Not big meetings or anything like that," Tomsula said.

49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo admits to thinking about uncertain future

It's been well-known that Jimmy Garoppolo is likely in his last season with the San Francisco 49ers, the first team in his career to anoint him a full-time starter after giving him a then record-breaking five-year, $137.5 million extension following the 2017 NFL season. Garoppolo has certainly had his ups and downs this season, highlighted by San Francisco's record, as they had a four-game losing streak early in the season before finishing strong with a 7-2 record in their last nine games. Garoppolo hasn't been shy about his emotions, understanding the magnitude of the situation, given that he is essentially trying out for other teams right now ahead of the offseason. "You know, it's a fine line [in removing the emotion about my future]," Garoppolo

People keep writing off Jimmy Garoppolo, and the San Francisco 49ers quarterback keeps winning football games. He's now won three consecutive starts while playing with a pretty severe right thumb injury. First, his Niners beat the Los Angeles Rams to clinch a playoff berth in the final regular-season game. Then, he helped his team upset the NFC East champions, the Dallas Cowboys. On Saturday, Garoppolo was part of a stunner, helping knock off the top-seeded Green Bay Packers. By the way, each of those games was on the road, including the frigid matchup this past weekend at Lambeau Field. Garoppolo's teammates believe in him. His coaches obviously believe in him. Kyle Shanahan has stuck with the veteran passer, despite having the No. 3 overall pick, Trey Lance, on



Uncertain future helped Jimmy Garoppolo lock in on 49ers' playoff run, says Kyle Shanahan

Jimmy Garoppolo has openly acknowledged he is well aware that each game could be his last with the San Francisco 49ers. He knows the team's situation. The 49ers used a lot of draft capital to trade up and acquire his successor, Trey Lance, with the No. 3 overall pick. Lance, not Garoppolo, is the quarterback of the future. That could have created an awkward situation for Garoppolo. That wasn't the case earlier in the season because it was easy enough to focus on the many remaining games. However, as that number of games diminished, Garoppolo started to think about his situation. Before the regular-season finale against the Los Angeles Rams, before the 49ers clinched a playoff berth, Garoppolo approached his fullback, Kyle
