SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — The San Francisco 49ers have handed the team to Jim Tomsula. The defensive line coach was promoted yesterday and formally introduced Thursday morning.
In his only stint as head coach, Tomsula came on as interim head coach to end the 2010 season following ex-coach Mike Singletary’s firing. In that game, Tomsula chose to start Alex Smith under center over Troy Smith for a 38-7 win against Arizona in the season finale, and go 1-0 in his head coaching career.
KRON 4’s Jason Applebaum tells us more about Jim Tomsula in this report.
