Tom Pelissero of NFL Media reports that new Cowboys HC Mike McCarthy is targeting Jim Tomsula for a position on his coaching staff.
Todd Archer also hears McCarthy is interested in hiring Rams special teams coordinator John Fassel.
Tomsula, 51, began his NFL coaching career with the 49ers as their defensive line coach back in 2007. He stayed in this position for several years before he took over for Jim Harbaugh after he was fired in 2015.
The Redskins hired Tomsula as their DL coach in 2017.
Tomsula’s record with the 49ers is 6-11 (35.3 percent), which includes one game he filled in as the team’s interim head coach during the 2010 season.
Fassel, 45, began his NFL coaching career with the Ravens as an assistant special teams coach back in 2005. He spent four years with the Raiders before joining the Rams in 2012 and has worked as their special teams coordinator before being promoted to head coach after they fired Jeff Fisher.
Fassel returned to being the Rams’ special teams coordinator the following year.
Football Outsiders have the Rams’ special teams unit ranked No. 23 overall in 2019.
