The 49ers went from Jim Harbaugh to “Jim Nobody from Nowhere.”

Four years after creation a dash by employing Harbaugh as their conduct coach, a 49ers done many of their fans nonplussed by replacing him Wednesday with defensive line manager Jim Tomsula, whose self-given “Nowhere” nickname is a curtsy to his anonymity.

Tomsula, 46, apparently comes with distant reduction pushing than Harbaugh, a former NFL quarterback who arrived after resurrecting Stanford’s once-pushover program. Tomsula, a defensive lineman during Division II Catawba College, comes to a tip pursuit notwithstanding never carrying been an NFL coordinator.


His NFL resume consists of his 8 seasons heading a 49ers’ defensive line, nonetheless a final of his 9 seasons in now-defunct NFL Europe was spent as conduct manager of a Rhein Fire.

Tomsula, a longest-tenured member of a staff, was a 49ers’ halt manager for a 2010 regular-season culmination when he initial flashed his colorful everyman persona. In truth, he’s distant some-more than a blue-collar jokester. He is renouned among players, though he is also perfectionist and is regarded as one of a NFL’s best position coaches after education a horde of undrafted giveaway agents who have forged out NFL careers.

But his graduation is certain to be met with skepticism. Of a 9 possibilities deliberate for a job, Tomsula has a slightest NFL knowledge and is a usually manager who’s never been a coordinator in a league. It’s not famous if a 49ers had a grave talk with Tomsula before creation a hire.

A day after interruption ways with Harbaugh, 49ers CEO Jed York pronounced he was seeking a clergyman in his subsequent head-coaching hire. He also voiced a enterprise to “win with class,” that was noticed as a shot during Harbaugh, whose clever celebrity helps explain because he’s now during a University of Michigan. On Wednesday, York strike on both of his prior themes in hailing Tomsula’s hiring.

“After conducting a consummate coaching search, and assembly with a series of superb candidates, Jim Tomsula clearly is a right male to lead this team,” York said. “Jim is a good clergyman and a extensive manager who conducts himself with good category and integrity.”

The in-house employing evidently wasn’t done to say smoothness for a authorization that had a 36-11-1 record and reached 3 true NFC pretension games before this season’s unsatisfactory 8-8 record. The 49ers will keep usually using backs manager Tom Rathman from a remaining staff, Fox Sports reported Wednesday night. Rathman, a second-longest tenured member of a staff, is tighten with using behind Frank Gore, 31, a franchise’s career rushing personality who is a tentative giveaway agent.

The reported exodus of assistants comes as a surprise. However, it was approaching that defensive coordinator Vic Fangio, who interviewed for a head-coaching opening, would ask to be expelled from his agreement after being upheld over. Fangio, 56, is a 28-year NFL maestro with 15 years of knowledge as a coordinator. He oversaw a invulnerability that authorised a second-fewest points in a NFL over a past 4 seasons. Raiders defensive coordinator Jason Tarver, 40, would be a claimant to reinstate Fangio, a source said. Tarver was a 49ers’ outward linebackers manager from 2005 to 2010.

The 49ers clearly identified Tomsula as a favorite from a start, though they also had clever seductiveness in Broncos descent coordinator Adam Gase, 36.

They conducted their second talk with Gase on Tuesday in a Denver area, though a Broncos also have seductiveness in creation him their subsequent conduct coach. Gase met with Broncos ubiquitous manager John Elway on Wednesday morning about their head-coaching opening, a Denver Post reported. Gase has worked with a Broncos given 2009.

It’s not famous if Tomsula’s graduation will lean All-Pro defensive tackle Justin Smith, 35, to lapse for a 15th season. In December, Smith pronounced he hadn’t done adult his mind about entrance behind in 2015, though a source pronounced he would be some-more prone to postpone retirement if Tomsula or Fangio was named conduct coach.
