After an extensive search the San Francisco 49ers have decided to hire from within the organization to find their new head coach.  Jim Tomsula who is the team's defensive line's coach has been promoted to head coach.

Tomsula, who is a popular figure in the locker room, was the interim head coach of the 49ers at the end of 2010 after Mike Singletary was fired.

49ers CEO Jed York had this to say about Tomsula in a statement.

"After conducting a thorough coaching search, and meeting with a number of outstanding candidates, Jim Tomsula clearly is the right man to lead this team."
