While many Forever Faithful continue to scratch their heads on the team’s decision to promote Jim Tomsula to head coach, there are many others who believe he is the right man for the job.
And while Tomsula has the endorsement of his players, it was his predecessor Jim Harbaugh who gave high praise for Tomsula.
“Jim is fantastic,” Jim Harbaugh said. “This is a passsionate, caring football coach. As high energy and as enthusiastic as anyone in the National Football League.”
And while Harbaugh praised Tomsula’s character, it was 49ers DE Justin Smith who gave Tomsula a vote of confidence when Tomsula was named interim head coach in 2010. “They chose the right guy,” Smith said. “There’s really no secret to why he got it in my book. People were like, ‘Ah, Jim Tomsula?’ But if you’re in the building, you know why…you know why.”
