Jim Tomsula

Regular Season: 2-3

Postseason: 0-0

Experience: 1

Career record: 2-3

Pro Career: Jim Tomsula was named the 19th head coach of the San Francisco 49ers on Jan. 14, 2015, after spending the past eight seasons as the team's defensive line coach. Tomsula also served as San Francisco's interim head coach for the final game of the 2010 season, a 38-7 victory over the Arizona Cardinals.

Tomsula has coached 31 seasons of football at the high school, college and professional levels since the fall of 1989, including eight (2007-2014) with the 49ers since being named San Francisco's defensive line coach in 2007.

During his 49ers tenure, Tomsula has been instrumental in developing one of the most dominant defenses in the NFL. Since 2007, the 49ers rank fourth in the league in rushing yards allowed per game (98.4) and second in rushing average (3.72). San Francisco's defense also ranks third in the NFL in points per game allowed (19.4) and fourth in yards per game allowed (320.9). In 2011, San Francisco set the NFL record by not allowing a rushing touchdown in their first 14 games of the season. The team surrendered just three rushing touchdowns all year, the fewest allowed in the NFL since the league went to a 16-game schedule in 1978.

Under Tomsula's tutelage, DT Justin Smith was named to five consecutive Pro Bowls (2009-13) and earned All-Pro honors in 2011, 2012 and 2013. Despite being the fourth overall pick in the 2001 NFL Draft, Smith had never been selected to either team prior to working with Tomsula. Other players who have prospered under Tomsula's direction are LB Ahmad Brooks, DL Glenn Dorsey, LB Aldon Smith and NT Ian Williams, as well as former 49ers DT Isaac Sopoaga and DT Ricky Jean Francois.

Tomsula joined the 49ers after enjoying one of the most successful stints in NFL Europa history. Prior to being named the head coach of the Rhein Fire in 2006, which made him the youngest head coach in NFLE history at age 38. Tomsula served as the Berlin Thunder's defensive coordinator for two seasons, winning World Bowl XII in his first season with a defense that ranked first in the NFLE against the run.

Tomsula joined the NFLE in 1998 as the defensive line coach of the England Monarchs. He then went on to serve in the same capacity for five seasons with the Scottish Claymores, where he established a reputation for producing some of the league's most dominant lines. He also played a leading role in mentoring and teaching young talent in the league's National Player Development program.

Between NFL Europa seasons, Tomsula spent each fall as a member of Division II Catawba College's coaching staff, since coaching in the NFLE was not a year-round position. He had been a defensive lineman at Catawba College in Salisbury, NC, after transferring from Middle Tennessee State.

Background: In 1989, Tomsula began his coaching career as an assistant at his alma mater following a career-ending knee injury. The following season, he went on to coach the defensive line at Woodland Hills (Pa.) High School. After spending the next two years out of coaching to provide for his family as a medical equipment sales rep with Thera-Kinetics, Tomsula landed a position as an assistant on the Charleston Southern University coaching staff (1992-95). He would once again spend two seasons out of coaching, as he returned to his hometown of Pittsburgh, Pa., to serve as a sales representative with Cisco Foods. Urged by his family to continue his dream of coaching football, Tomsula returned to the coaching ranks in 1997 as the volunteer assistant defensive line coach at Catawba.

Personal: He and his wife, Julie, have two daughters, Britney and Brooke, and a son, Bear.
