Jim Tomsula drawing interest as an assistant coach [report]


Football fans may be graced with the pleasure of seeing Jim Tomsula on NFL sidelines come the fall of 2017.

The Sacramento Bee’s Matt Barrows is reporting the former 49ers head coach is being discussed by the Washington Redskins.

Tomsula is connected to Washington GM Scot McCloughan, who was hired in 2005. Tomsula came a board in 2007 and the pair spent three seasons together. Redskins head coach Jay Gruden fired defensive coordinator Joe Barry after three middling seasons. Days later, offensive coordinator Sean McVay left to become the head coach of the Los Angeles Rams.

Tomsula led the 49ers to a 5-11 record in 2015. He took time away from the NFL in 2016. Jed York is reportedly paying Tomsula $15 million to not coach his franchise.
