Possible DC? San Fran fans supposedly love Tomsula.

Quote:
Houston Texans: Houston is focused in on Penn State's Bill O'Brien and a deal is likely to come together in the next day or two, sources said. It's possible he reaches out for 49ers defensive line coach Jim Tomsula as a defensive coordinator (Tomsula could get a head coaching interview at some point as well).

I'd love that. I don't know about Tomsula specifically but I'd love to have anyone associated with that SF defense.

A league source said some teams (there are currently six teams without a head coach) are beginning to do background work on defensive line coach Jim Tomsula. He could emerge as a candidate in the next week. As per league rule, coaches in the wild-card round (the 49ers play at Green Bay on Sunday) cant interview this week.

Tomsula could be considered a long-shot because hes never been a NFL coordinator. However, coaches such as Andy Reid and John Harbaugh have become successful head coaches after making the jump from an NFL positional coach.

He does have experience as a head coach in NFL Europe. Tomsula, known for an energetic personality and positive attitude, is one of the more respect defensive line coaches in the NFL.

If continued interest in Tomsula develops, hed join offensive coordinator Greg Roman as a possible head-coach candidate...

Yeh Wade had two game plans this last year:

Game Plan A: Man to Man

Game Plan B: Zone

Never the twain shall meet.

It was obvious things were over when Wade went to the Texans archive and pulled out the Richard Smith tapes and went to the 12 yard corner buffer.

So my eyes were deceiving me when they did that sh!t in week one against the Chaaagers ?!


That's been one of my biggest pet peeves of the entire era .... reminds me so much of the Dumass Capers .... errr Keystone Capers era with P-Burnt playing 7+ yards off the LOS on 3rd & short / X & goal.

Oh FFS .... someone give me a valium.

Default Re: O'Brien & His Coaching Staffs

I am not sure how much weight I put in the "coaching tree failed so this guy will fail". If the guy fails, it'll be for a multitude of reasons, like personnel evaluation, etc.

We will find out who BOB is when he starts coaching. He's clearly a guy who wants his players to be thinkers pre-game and on the field. I think that was Kubiak's biggest failing is that he called 2 plays and the players could only run those 2 plays on the field. NE essentially kills people every year by adapting on the fly and that's what we need.

Whether that happens remains to be seen.

Of course coverages in the defensive secondary are a function of the front end of the defense to a degree, but the front 7 is what Wade's all about. He's a man willing to be flexible, wants to remain in Houston for personal reasons, so I don't think it's a sure thing that he's gone. O'Brien will probably want to concentrate exclusively on the offensive side of the game, so he might welcome a DC with Wade's lengthy NFL resume who at the same time is very laid-back type who might be compatible with a firebrand like O'Brien.

Agreed. What people may not realize with BOB is that he is one of the only first-time NFL head coaches from the "Belichick tree" that has previous (as well as successful) head coaching experience, which is unlike Josh McDaniels, Romeo Crennel, Eric Mangini, Jim Schwartz, etc...

Great, Glad to know we've got another head coach that likes
to put his buddies on the gravy train with him.

Wonder if he has a guy in mind for GM?

Kubiak part deux

Does anyone know if any of those people have a lick of
pro experience?
