Jim Tomsula Seen Gathering Jerseys, Packing Equipment For Trip To Pittsburgh
September 18 / Rick Chandler / SportsGrid
A lot has been said about the change in atmosphere when Jim Harbaugh left for Michigan and Jim Tomsula was installed as the new head coach of the 49ers. Tomsula, it's said, is a down-to-Earth, hands-on guy. And you can't get more down-to-Earth and hands on than this:
In the locker room today, saw a guy pushing around an equipment bin, gather players’ equipment and clothes for the trip. It was Jim Tomsula.
Yeah, apparently, Tomsula is even pitching and and helping to pack the team's locker room crap for road trips. Somehow I don't picture Tom Landry ever having done that.
Not many people have thoughts on Tomsula as a head coach, because he's only been one for a week now. But he has the highest winning percentage of any 49ers coach, ever, at 1.000. Sure, that's after one game -- but he's already standing out as the kind of guy you like to root for.
Jim Tomasula looks like he'd always be trying to get you to hang out with him in his garage.
