The San Francisco 49ers are in the process of finding a replacement for fired head coach Jim Tomsula. That's led them to a recently fired head coach.
Interesting development: The Giants have granted the 49ers permission to interview Tom Coughlin, source tells @FS1.— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) January 11, 2016
Coughlin is interviewing with the Eagles later tonight. So, it certainly sounds like Coughlin is at least interested in still coaching.
Coughlin has never coached on the west coast before. The furthest west he's gone as a coach was with the Green Bay Packers as a position coach.
Coughlin is a departure from most of the candidates the 49ers have been linked to. Hue Jackson and Chip Kelly are the two most notable names connected to the 49ers and both are much younger than the 69-year old Coughlin.Back to the San Francisco 49ers Newsfeed
