San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Anquan Boldin was receptive to the in-house promotion of Jim Tomsula to head coach, but doesn't think that the former defensive line coach will be "as tough" as former head man Jim Harbaugh.
"He'll be the same way, but I just think he has a pretty good feel for the locker room," Boldin said, via NFL.com.
"Not saying coach Harbaugh didn't. I don't think coach Tomsula will be as tough as coach Harbaugh was," Boldin added.
Regardless of the difference in coaching styles, Boldin sees the Tomsula promotion as a needed bit of continuity for the 49ers going forward.
"He's a great coach, first of all," Boldin said. "For teams to be successful, you have to have as much continuity from year to year as much as possible. Hiring Tomsula gives us that continuity. The less change you have, the better chance you have of being successful the following year."Back to the San Francisco 49ers Newsfeed
