San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Tomsula was fired Sunday night after just one season and a 19-16 overtime victory against St. Louis, according to a team statement. The Niners went 5-11 and missed the playoffs for the second straight season, the worst record since going 4-12 in 2005. Tomsula was San Francisco's defensive line coach for eight years before he became head coach last year to replace Jim Harbaugh. "Jimmy has been a valuable member of the 49ers organization for the last nine years,” owner Jed York said. "We all know he is a man of high character, and his contributions on the field and in our community have always been greatly appreciated." York was scheduled to address the media on Monday at Levi's Stadium.
