Report: Tomsula becomes Washington's D-line coach

Report: Tomsula becomes Washington's D-line coach

Former 49ers head coach Jim Tomsula is reportedly back in the NFL after a one-year hiatus.

Tomsula, who spent his first eight NFL seasons as a defensive line coach, will return to that job with Washington, Carol Maloney of NBC4 reported on Sunday. Tomsula rejoins Washington defensive coordinator Greg Manusky and general manager Scot McCloughan, both of whom he worked with while members of the 49ers organization.

Tomsula was promoted to the head-coaching job over finalist Adam Gase two years ago after the 49ers' “mututal parting” with coach Jim Harbaugh. Tomsula was fired after the 49ers went 5-11 in 2015. Chip Kelly was hired to replace Tomsula. Kelly was fired after the 49ers went 2-14, including a franchise-worst 13-game losing streak.

Falcons rout Packers, postpone date Shanahan can sign with 49ers

Falcons rout Packers, postpone date Shanahan can sign with 49ers

Before the 49ers will have an opportunity to officially hire Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan as the team’s next head coach, executives Jed York and Paraag Marathe will have a chance to meet with him for a second time.

The Falcons advanced to Super Bowl 51 with an impressive 44-21 victory over the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship game. Shanahan's offense rolled up 493 yards and converted 10 of 14 (77 percent) on third downs. Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan completed 27 of 38 passes for 392 yards and four touchdowns.

Shanahan, who was voted the NFL Assistant Coach of the Year last week in a voting of the Pro Football Writers of America, is scheduled to interview with the 49ers on Friday, a source told CSNBayArea.com

NFL rules prohibit the 49ers from hiring Shanahan until after the Falcons’ final game of the season. Atlanta will face the Pittsburgh-New England winner in Super Bowl 51 on Feb. 5 in Houston.

Shanahan is expected to be involved in the 49ers’ process to hire a general manager. Minnesota assistant general manager George Paton and Arizona vice president of player personnel Terry McDonough are the finalists among a group of nine candidates who interviewed. The 49ers could also open up the search to consider other candidates, the source said.

Shanahan is expected to become the second coach in 49ers history to be hired after being a coordinator on a Super Bowl team. In 1989, the 49ers promoted defensive coordinator George Seifert after Bill Walsh stepped down following the team’s victory over Cincinnati in Super Bowl XXIII.

Shanahan’s father, Mike, was the 49ers’ offensive coordinator on the Super Bowl-winning team after the 1994 sesaon. Shortly after the 49ers won the Super Bowl with a 49-26 rout of the San Diego Chargers, Shanahan was hired as Denver Broncos head coach. The elder Shanahan served as Broncos coach for 14 seasons and won two Super Bowls.

Atlanta coach Dan Quinn was hired two years ago on the day after the Seattle Seahawks lost to the Patriots in Super Bowl 49. Quinn was Seattle’s defensive coordinator.
