Jim Tomsula comments on his future after 49ers terrible start

It's fair to say that Jim Tomsula's first season as head coach of the San Francisco 49ers has been a bit of a disaster.

The Niners weren't expected to pull up trees this campaign following the retirements of Patrick Willis, Chris Borland, Anthony Davis and Justin Smith - but nobody foresaw what has happened, with highly-paid quarterback Colin Kaepernick getting benched.

San Francisco have won just three games all season and find themselves firmly rooted to the bottom of the NFC West, but Jim Tomsula says he isn't focused on losing his job.

Speaking to reporters yesterday, Tomsula was asked whether he has received any assurances about his job security and if he’ll return in 2016. The 47-year-old revealed that no such meetings had taken place.

“[W]e haven’t had any conversations about any of that,” Tomsula said.

“Just to your point right there, we’re in a performance-based business and all of us in it get it. So I don’t think or work that way. [M]y long-term goal is Sunday. It’s just where I stay.”

Seeing as owner Jed York and general manager Trent Baalke hand-picked Tomsula to be the long-term successor to Jim Harbaugh, it is unlikely that they will ditch him after just one season.

But Tomsula hasn't shown anything to suggest that he can improve the 49ers from their lowly position in the NFC West anytime soon and that has to be a worry for both the higher ups at the Niners and their loyal fans, who have had to sit through some shocking performances.
