Just three seasons after a Super Bowl appearance, the San Francisco 49ers had their worst record since 2007 at 5-11 under first-year head coach Jim Tomsula. The team fired Tomsula on Sunday, just hours after a season-ending win over the St. Louis Rams:
Colin Kaepernick regressed under the Tomsula reign and eventually lost the starting quarterback job to Blaine Gabbert.
Whoever the next head coach is, they will likely attempt to resurrect Kaepernick’s career as the franchise quarterback. Possible options for the job at Chip Kelly, Sean Payton and Hue Jackson.
