49ers looking to recruit from within 

After the explosive nature of Black Monday, 24 hours later we have a boat load of speculation in the NFL.

San Francisco 49ers are interviewing their own defensive-line coach Jim Tomsula to replace outgoing head coach Jim Harbaugh. Such a move may be surprising, considering that Tomsula is not even the defensive co-ordinator in San Francisco, but nonetheless, the reports carry weight.  

However, NFL experts such as Ben Volin have expressed their surprise at the move, which probably wouldn't go down well with key 49ers' personnel.
