Super Bowl Media Day video: Jim Tomsula discusses Justin Smith and chest hair

New, comments

We took a few minutes at Super Bowl Media Day to talk with 49ers defensive line coach Jim Tomsula. He provided some insight on Justin Smith's injury and a wardrobe malfunction.

I might as well retire, because I don't know how I'll top this one. I mentioned a little bit ago how one of the guys I wanted to make sure and talk to at media day was Anthony Dixon. One of the others I really wanted to talk to was 49ers defensive line coach Jim Tomsula. He is another guy who is under the radar in a national sense, but completely beloved by 49ers fans.

I finally came across Coach Tomsula, and got in a pair of questions. I wanted to go with one serious question and one light-hearted question, and both seemed pretty easy. I opened by asking about Justin Smith's injury and how it impacted things. Coach Tomsula felt it didn't change anything because of how tough Justin Smith is.

I also made sure to ask him about the now infamous shots of his chest hair when he has his hands on his knees on the sideline. He actually knew what I was talking about when I brought it up and had a great response. Give the video a look when you get a minute. It was a lot of fun.
