The San Francisco 49ers will promote defensive line coach Jim Tomsula to head coach, the team announced Wednesday.

The news was first reported by Adam Schefter of ESPN.

“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,” 49ers CEO Jed York said in a statement. “Jim is a great teacher and a tremendous mentor who conducts himself with great class and integrity.”

The team reportedly told Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Adam Gase, another candidate for the job, that “they’re going in a different direction,” according to Schefter.

Tomsula, 46, spent the last eight seasons as the 49ers’ defensive line coach. He also served as the team’s interim head coach for the final game of the 2010 season after Mike Singletary was fired.

San Francisco also reportedly interviewed Gase, former Redskins coach Mike Shanahan
