49ers’ Jim Tomsula Confirms ‘Heated Meeting’ With Players


San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Tomsula acknowledged that a heated meeting took place in an interview with KNBR 680.

“The other one with a ‘players only meeting,’ they must be referring to the meeting I had after the Packers (Green Bay) game. I had a very pointed meeting,” Tomsula said. “I’m obviously not going to use the language I used in the meeting. And I’m obviously not going to get into the particulars of the meeting.”

“I did have a heated meeting. That does happen in this business. When you become 2-5, that starts to become headlines. But it was a very productive meeting. It was a meeting where it was truthful and dealt with facts and reality.”

Tomsula later added:

“Guys, it’s like an Italian dining room table. Everybody’s sitting around the table and sometimes it gets heated, dishes get broken, people leave. But everybody’s got to come back to the table to eat. And when it’s all said and done, we’re hugging and kissing and we’re eating good food again.”

Earlier, Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area reported that a heated exchange did in fact take place over QB Colin Kaepernick.
