49ers owner Jed York admitted that hiring Jim Tomsula was a mistake and it’s one they’ll have to pay a big chunk of money for.  The 49ers will pay Jim Tomsula $14 million for his one season as head coach.

Tomsula, who was fired after the season finale on Sunday, will get every cent of the $14 million in his four-year contract, 49ers owner Jed York said.

“I would say this: We’ve got several years of Jimmy T’s salary left and we’re going to eat it,” York said. “Whether he’s coaching somewhere else or not, we owe him that. That’s not a concern.”

With Tomsula making $14 million for one 5-11 season, the 49ers will end up paying Tomsula $2.8 million per victory as 49ers head coach. Jim Harbaugh, the coach York ran off to make room for the more compliant Tomsula, was a relative bargain at about $400,000 per victory.
