What do you think of this report from Jason Cole?
Cole: “The San Francisco 49ers and their management would prefer that coach Jim Tomsula survive this season despite the fact that they’re on a 4-10 season and have gone backwards significantly over the year, not only with the roster with so many defections on the roster, but also on the coaching staff with the loss of Jim Harbaugh. Despite all of that, management wants to have some type of continuity.
“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. This team gave up over 200 yards rushing against Cleveland recently, and was out of the game on Sunday against Cincinnati in the second quarter with a litany of turnovers.
“Finally, one of the other big concerns for Tomsula as he goes into his second year, and assuming he makes it, is whether he is going to be able to bring assistant coaches in to bolster the assistant coach staff. Is he going to be able to attract top-level people even though the interpretation of the situation if he returns is that he may only have one year left?
“There is lots of concern here for the 49ers about their future. And, while they haven’t made a final decision on Tomsula, and he might ultimately be fired, they’re leaning towards keeping him at this point in time. That my not be the best solution for the 49ers long term.”
