SAN FRANCISCO - Jim Tomsula made his modest head coaching start in NFL Europe, then landed as the 49ers top man nearly a decade later.San Francisco promoted its longtime defensive line coach to head coach Wednesday, going with a familiar face following a national search that took more than two weeks and ended right in house.The well-liked Tomsula is set to be formally introduced Thursday in a news conference at Levis Stadium.Im a football coach. Im Jim nobody from nowhere, Tomsula said in 2010.Tomsula replaces Jim Harbaugh, who parted ways with the Niners on Dec. 28 in what the team called a mutual decision. Harbaugh was introduced as Michigans new coach two days later following a successful four-year stint during which the 49ers reached three straight NFC championship games and a Super Bowl.After conducting a thorough coaching search, and meeting with a number of outstanding candidates, Jim Tomsula clearly is the right man to lead this team, CEO Jed York said in a statement. Jim is a great teacher and a tremendous mentor who conducts himself with great class and integrity.San Francisco went 8-8 last season and missed the playoffs for the first time in four years since Harbaugh arrived in January 2011, and the franchise is turning to a familiar face to get the Niners back on track to chase a sixth championship.York said a day after the season ended he wanted to find a teacher to lead the franchise forward. Certainly a coach familiar with the operation was important as the 49ers build around quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who is coming off a disappointing year.I love my guys, Tomsula said in a long sit-down with The Associated Press leading up to last season. I have the best guys. They are just awesome guys from top to bottom.With the 46-year-old Tomsulas hiring, it is expected that defensive co-ordinator Vic Fangio and other coaches will depart given he wasnt chosen for the top job and got leapfrogged by Tomsula.Our organization is excited to have Jim Tomsula leading this football team, general manager Trent Baalke said. We have had the privilege of working alongside Jim for the past eight seasons. He is a proven leader, teacher and mentor, and we look forward to seeing him apply his craft and vision to our team.From one energetic, animated Jim to another leading the way.Extremely happy for Jimmy T! Cant wait to get back at it! safety Eric Reid posted on Twitter.In the early 90s, Tomsula worked as a sales rep for a medical equipment company, then delivered newspapers and worked as a night janitor and cut firewood to earn extra cash in his early coaching days with a young family.Its a good move. I look forward to fighting for Jim Tomsula, said tight end Vernon Davis, who is a neighbour of Tomsulas — their kids play on the same flag football team. Tomsula, just the energy that he provides during the games and having a relationship with him, I can tell that (for) players, hes one of those coaches players wouldnt mind playing for. Just his spirit. Hes a good guy and a terrific coach. Hell allow you to go out and do whatever you can do. Hell put each and every individual in place to perform at a high level.Tomsula is a perfect 1-0 as a head coach.Serving a single-game stint as interim head coach to end the 2010 season following Mike Singletarys firing, the coach who attended tiny Catawba College in North Carolina chose to start Alex Smith under centre over Troy Smith for a 38-7 win against Arizona in the season finale.Were going to win. Let me make that clear, Tomsula said at the time. That was something we talked about this morning. Jeds made that very clear. Trent Baalkes made it very clear — very, very crystal clear.Harbaugh was hired a couple of weeks later on a $25 million, five-year deal and quickly began a transformation of a team that had gone eight years without a winning record or playoff berth.Now, if anybody might be able to persuade defensive lineman Justin Smith to return for another season after 14 years in the NFL, it might be his old position coach.Tomsula could be a strong influence on running back Frank Gore returning, too.Guiding Kaepernick will be a big part of the process.The 49ers offence was inconsistent behind Kaepernick, who completed a second full season as starter that featured too many mistakes and missed opportunities. Harbaugh promoted him over Alex Smith in November 2012, and the 49ers fell short of a Super Bowl championship after that season, losing by three points to Baltimore.Its up to us to make sure we compete for and win Super Bowls. Thats our only goal, York said. We dont raise division championships banners. We dont raise NFC Championship banners. We raise Super Bowl banners.Tomsula will be challenged to get far more production out of an offence that struggled to score points in the second half last season. San Francisco managed only 37 points after halftime in nine games going into its 20-17 victory in the regular-season finale against Arizona.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Clearance Yeezy For Sale .Y. - Terry and Kim Pegula have no immediate plans to tinker with their new NFL team.

The journeyman goaltender can only go by what hes told. "Probably the main reason why I havent gotten a game while Ive been up is because I dont have NHL experience," MacIntyre said. "Thats the most frustrating thing." Listen to all the action on TSN Radio 1050 starting at 7:30pm et. Its hard to have experience without someone giving him a chance. "Chicken and egg thing," said his agent, Thane Campbell. "You have to get that right opportunity. Some of it is just luck -- being at the right place at the right time." MacIntyre is now in exactly the right place at the right time. With the Toronto Maple Leafs officially eliminated from playoff contention and Jonathan Bernier out with a knee injury, the Charlottetown product is set to make his first career NHL start Thursday night at the Florida Panthers. Its a long time coming for a veteran of 351 AHL games, 56 ECHL games and even two in the KHL. Along the way, he has seen Cory Schneider, Ben Scrivens and other goaltenders he competed against in the minors earn full-time NHL gigs. "It literally feels like every day I see one of the guys that Ive competed against for a while getting starts and becoming a No. 1 goalie in the NHL," MacIntyre said last month. "So that kind of thing can get frustrating because Ive competed pretty well against all those guys. Thats just more evidence that I believe that I can play here (in the NHL)." MacIntyres resume so far includes just five NHL appearances, all in relief. Two came for the Vancouver Canucks in 2007-08, two for the Buffalo Sabres in 2011-12, and the most recent one in March after James Reimer gave up three goals at the New Jersey Devils. On March 23, MacIntyre came in and stopped all 14 shots he faced. He saw that as something of an audition, which Thursday night can be, as well. "That enters your mind," he said. "I havent had that many opportunities. Theyve all been kind of getting thrown in there. ... Thats just the position that Im in where every summer Im hoping to get a job and scrambling to find something. I want to get a chance to compete for a backup role just to seee what I can do.dddddddddddd." MacIntyre will likely be scrambling again this summer. The AHLs Toronto Marlies could go with a young goaltending duo of Garret Sparks and Christopher Gibson, leaving the career minor-leaguer to look elsewhere. Campbells sales pitch is that MacIntyre is a two-time AHL all-star, people know him around the league and hes "not too old." He said MacIntyre is considered one of the best No. 3 goalie options around, but where he might end up next season depends on trades and other player movement. If nothing else, MacIntyre shouldnt have to face the same questions he did last year after breaking his ankle playing for HC Lev Prague of the KHL, getting released and struggling to find a job anywhere. For a while, no team in the ECHL or Central Hockey League would sign him. While practising with the University of Prince Edward Island, MacIntyre was asked by people close to him if he was considering retiring. "It kind of made me say, Jeepers, should I be thinking that?" MacIntyre said. "It definitely crossed my mind, but I didnt think about retiring. I just knew I was up for a fight." Itll likely be a fight to get an NHL deal that gives him a legitimate opportunity to compete for a backup job. After trips through three organizations, thats what MacIntyre expects. "With a number of teams hes been knocking on the door and hes been very close," said Campbell, who has represented MacIntyre since he was 16 years old. "But its tough to get into the NHL, its a tough league to play in. Its the best league in the world. But hes only 30 and theres time left, thats for sure." The goaltender who gives MacIntyre inspiration is Tim Thomas, who didnt make his first career NHL start until the age of 28 and didnt get a real chance until after a sojourn to Europe showed what kind of performer he could become. Family members and friends always bring up Thomas, now a Conn Smythe Trophy and Stanley Cup-winner, to give MacIntyre hope. And he buys into that belief. "He did it. I dont see why I couldnt do it," MacIntyre said. "Im not saying Im going to be Tim Thomas if I get a chance, but I like to think I can compete well up here." ' ' '
