The San Francisco 49ers of the National Football League had a very unexpected year. They reached the NFC championship each year over the last three seasons under Jim Harbaugh, who had come into the league as a rookie head coach, but took the 49ers to the top of the NFL very rapidly. He took over a team that had a ton of talent on the roster, but had failed to manifest anything substantial under previous head coach Mike Singletary, who was one of the biggest factors in the 1985 Bears undefeated season.
Harbaugh had done something that few coaches will ever do in the NFL and he was an amazing coach, but he was let go from the organization after the 49ers had a mediocre season finishing with eight wins and eight losses and failing to make the playoffs. It almost seems unfair that Jim Harbaugh was to blame in the 49ers lack of success this year due to the fact that they suffered major injuries in their defense with Patrick Willis and Navarro Bowman both out due to injuries, while superstar Aldon Smith was out for nine games due to a suspension. Regardless, the 49ers had to make a decision on their head coach and they decided to let their coach go. Since then they have hired Jim Tomsula, who already has a vast understanding of the 49ers team and is likely to help them be successful in the following season.
