Jim Tomsula gave a rambling, entertaining speech at Western PA Sports Hall of Fame

Somehow it is an entirely predictable speech.

We’ve got a Jim Tomsula sighting! He was recently inducted into the Western Pennsylvania Sports Hall of Fame, and Deadspin got some video of his speech. He was apparently told he had three or four minutes, and then proceeded to go ten minutes. It really does strike me as vintage Tomsula, and is worth a watch.

The former San Francisco 49ers head coach went completely off the grid after he was fired following the 2015 season. He shaved his mustache and showed up at a Gold’s Gym a week after his dismissal, and that was the last we saw of him until Jay Gruden hired him this year to be Washington’s defensive line coach. In that role, he also ran defensive line drills at the 2017 NFL Combine.

We are now two head coaches removed from Jim Tomsula, as the 49ers finally blew things up this offseason. It was a disaster the past two years. Blame will flow freely, but that doesn’t mean we can’t still enjoy the watching Jim Tomsula give this speech.
